new low

Spring is here, worked away and got the vogtlands on. Currently I'm happy with how the rear sits, hopefully the front end settles down a bit.
Ride is suprisingly not that bad, for 19"s and lowered springs, no issues at all with fitment.



Here it is with a pano iphone shot, car is dirty but its supposed to snow today. hopefully for the last time in a while. My old 9-3 in the background w/koni kit.

What type of BBS wheels are those. They look like RK's but I can't quite tell.

Pictures really don't do them justice.. I was skeptical getting the black wheels, but in person they look great, and fit the car well I think

I agree, although it's a bit of an unflattering angle, and they probably could've used wider rubber..

Vogtlands.. The rear sat nicely, the front end might need a few weeks to settle fully.. Anyone else have experience w/ Vogtlands, on a 9-5?
