Default I don't name cars.

This is my basically stock '05 r53. I got it about a month ago, after a long and troubled period of SAAB ownership. I hope that my days of blown headgaskets and glass transmissions are behind me.

So far I put a TSW engine damper on it, blacked out some trim, and ordered some other little stuff.

Oh, and I have wheels to put on it when time permits.

Yes, "needs more low."

They work fine. He just has to link them in the post for them to display. Until then just click on them.

I'm referencing his earlier thread: http://www.motoringunderground.com/f...ad.php?t=20384

...and I'm poking fun at him for it. Don't worry though, I used to live in that glass house. I'm reformed now. I buy the real deal or nothing.

Agreed. Just don't put BBS centercaps and you're golden. Car will look sick with them.

Well that's good to hear. I'm not trying to front. Fake BBS LM's. Made by Miro. Bought them from a reliable MINI aftermarket dealer. I'm just doing my part!

Looks like I'm getting them put on tomorrow, then the search for suspension starts...

Another wise guy! Am I allowed to get V-Maxx coilovers even though they're 'replica' KWs? I want to be clear on the rules before I go throwing away my money on Slinky's and fake wheels. Thanks, man.

Sidenote: I just ordered a huge BBS windshield decal. So pumped!
