ma61 Looks great tutti.
Would you be able to post a profile picture from the front or rear to show how the wheel sits with the edge of the fender?

Thanks! Right now, 2 in the rear, 3 in front (there's probably a joke in there).. I'm running some pretty tight tires though, and moving up to 225/235's would probably help fill the gap for me..

I thought so, I remember seeing those wheels for sale in the area.. I'm in London.. I have the same problem with the Vogtlands, the rear sits perfectly, but the front looks like it barely dropped

cking1975 I had the same problem in the rear with the Eibach springs, I actually took the metal sleeve off and tightened the bolt down more, this allowed the spring to compress tight. In addition I used rubberized 3M spray on the shock housing, strut housing etc, especially on the parts the spring rest, fender wells, etc, this had made the suspension super quiet and other than having a little come off onto the inner wheel in the beginning, which I cleaned off with wheel cleaner, I am very please with the lack of road noise, etc

romanoaf The b&g's look great.. Makes me wish i didn't go with the Vogtlands..
Out of curiosity, where are you from? I think see Ontario plates there

mcrowley Great looking car.

cking1975 I just did that setup minus the B&G, I did Eibach Pro Kit and set the Koni's in the middle, I also use the MOOG balljoints and barlinks (much thicker than the OEM links). Had the allignment for Aero spec and wow !
