So I got a deal on a Milltek but it is currently being delayed cuz the guy I'm buying from had some personal issues. No worries though, should be here soon.

I installed some Angel eye parking lights. They are way too blue, so I need to track down some white LEDs. They look tight though.

Also, I've been contemplating some 5mm spacers all the way around. Mainly for looks, but I'm wondering how this will hurt/help performance. Currently the car feels awesome in the twisties and I don't want to screw with that too much.

I figure 10mm wider track will help cornering. But I'm just a newb, so feel free to enlighten

My fogs match my Xenons almost perfectly and the blue looks like its out of place imo.

Any comments on going to et32 with 5mm spacers? Will it hurt handling? Kill wheel bearings?

Here's a fresh one via iPhone:

Moved the euro plate to the front to mix it up. So far so good. I like it. The front needs to be lower though. I can't wait til the stock shocks go so I can justify coils.

Thanks! OEM+ is the look I'm going for, currently. The goal for coils is next summer. Will probably add some spacers too. See if I can't increase to baller status.

I'm running et37 oz ultraleggeras with 5mm spacers up front. the 5mm spacers made the car noticably more stable in corners. I'm not sure what it would feel like if I added the spacers in the back... but it sure would look pimp.

with our wheels and 5mm spacers you almost have a little bit of poke... i mean not really... but if you look at your car straight down the side, you'd swear you were poking a bit.

My bank account is currently on lockdown as I go through buying out my lease. So spacers (and everything else) will have to wait until next summer.

I'll probably go with some 5mm spacers all around when I get to it though.
