Nice pics. Is that a hobby of yours or are you a professional?

Yes, very nice. Though I noticed every single GTI pic is of the left-front...is there a massive dent in the right-rear?

Definitely not a professional! lol. But thanks for the comment. It's not even a hobby really.. I just took them with a < $200 samsung digital camera.

You know.. I just noticed that. I have a few from the other angle, but most of them came out blurry bc my friend's tripod was broken. But to answer your question, no there isn't a massive dent in the right-rear.. lol. :D

The pictures turned out very nice... It's good to see another fellow 7th gen still looking clean.

What type of suspension setup do you have... ?

Thanks. I have KYB AGX struts and Tein S-tech springs. Our cars almost look identical.. except you have the TRD lip kit correct?

Yep, I ordered my TRD front lip directly and it got held up for about 7 months -- it was when they were discontinuing the Elegante kit. Worth the wait!

The reason I ask about the suspension is b/c I'm planning on adding some Tein's soon -- and I'm just doing my homework. Any imput? Is the Tein S-Tech too low for normal DD?

I love the Elegante kit.. wish I had it, but I guess the wings west is close enough for me! lol

I have had the AGX/S-Tech combo on the car for over a year, and I haven't had a problem with the ride height. I think it's perfect. You do have to take inclines/declines at an angle though so you won't scrape your front lip.. you get used to it. The handling difference was amazing when I put the new suspension on!

Sounds like a good plan.. andy wanted to get some pics of his 5th gen and tim wanted to take some of his 2nd gen mr2. We should all head out there saturday night. I don't have to work.

Yah, I actually did 150 in my GT-S there.. it was nuts.

ill give you guys a call when i get done with my parents. their taking me out for my birthday. maybe i can get my girlfriend to wear something sexy and pose with the trac.i found out i had a 60-1 trim with a clipped exhaust wheel ct-26. the pics are on alltrac.net. so my pcv is blowing oil bad too so the turbo might not have been bad. just too cappy for a stock alltrac and 12 psi. i really need to clean the motor up too. a wire brush works well for this but i dont have one at home. i am also missing the turbo support bracket. i dont know how important it is but if you have one laying around ill buy it from you. lazy people must have owned my car.

Looks nice and clean, how you liking it? I'm looking into getting one possibly, just trying to get some opinions on people's experience with it. You have any problems with it?

Nope, no problems besides the ones that I caused. It's been a great car.
