Default My GTS Has Arrived

picking up tomorrow
some pics from my SA
question - the wheel gap on the back looks a little fat for SPASM?
optical illusion?
will the suspension settle down once driven?

First, nice car and congrats.

SPASM still looks 4x4 offroad. The fender gap is huge and ugly. I equipped mine with FAL but dont need it. It will come in handy once I lower the car on KW springs.

Make sure they took the shipping blocks out of the suspension.

Likely the shipping blocks, my GTS sits MUCH lower.

Let us know what the answer is when you pick up your car since I just looked at Google images of GTS cars and they all look lower to me.

My loaded 2017 X51 C2S with SPASM looks about like that, so i doubt it's shipping block effect. But there's enough scraping of my front lip that I don't wish to get it any lower.
The good news is that with PDCC, it will drop down lower in hard flat cornering, for a lower center of gravity than it appears to have at standstill.
I'm thinking of adding Vektor equal length headers at some point which lower clearance just a bit, so I'm not inclined to do any lowering of my suspension.

Maybe it will settle down. It does look a little high compared with my T.

Very nice build.

The leather seat backs with deviated stitching is a really nice detail.

Mine when I first got her. Looks lower in the rear as well. Could just be the angle of the pic he took for you. Keep us posted. Congrats on the new ride!!

Make sure you actually got SPASM and not regular PASM.
