Thanks. Rims/tires are next. Trying to find a cheaper price for the Yokohama Parada Spec-2. Discounttire wants $156 each and the tirerack wants $135 each. I'm going to check out some more places before I put down the cash. The dyno was done at the 2003 Nopi Nationals in Atlanta. The only engine mod I have done so far is a K&N filter change.

Those bottom lights are actually red reflectors. I don't know why it came out like that. Looks cool tho. Most ppl tell me that my car looks green under different lighting.

I really do love the look of your tips ATL... are those the extra wides from the dealer or aftemaket exhaust?
Thanks. They are aftermarket. Pick up a pair from AutoZone. Chrome 2-1/2 inch tips. Had to cut the stock ones of and have a shop weld these on. I have to go back because I forgot how low my car was to the curb. :( I parked to close too the curb and bent the left tip.

I'm afraid that if I get the GFX package, I'll end up scraping it on the parking bars or the curb. Or when I parallel park, scratching the rims. :-/

GFX - at least on the 6 - is not low enough to hit curbs (unless they're pretty tall curbs).

Rims, well... you could do that no matter what type of rims you have. And I have... three times. Although the scratches aren't really noticable unless you really look for them.

You just have to be extra careful around curbs when backing up or pulling up. Thats the only thing I don't miss about a lowered car. I don't have any problems with speed bumbs or uneven roads.
