Hello all! big update! Got the new lowering springs from Eibach! Car is definitely looking way more aggressive now and surprisingly doesnt scrape on speed breakers! The complete beeding is also in place as well as the new air flow meter, no more idling problems. Also ordered a used A/C console which looks brand new! Car is also a whole lot louder and with a better exhaust note after the straight pipe, although i feel it is a bit too loud after driving it around, but the note is to die for! Moreover, a big thanks to Phil of SpeedSport for the help in ordering and installation of all mentioned above. Neways here are the pics!

Looks very good and mean Abix.
Enjoy.

Any problem with the wheel touching the sides/the top after this?

so far no problems abhinav, had Phil on the side and was cornering at high speeds as well but no touching! Accidentally went over a speed breaker in speed as well yet no touching! I feel the ride quality also got a lot better! Cheers

HOT HOT HOT!! The Car looks nice with the lowered look Abix. Congrats

Did you get lowering springs for all four wheels or only the fronts?? The Fronts seems to be more lowered as compared to the rear, or the height drop in the front springs is higher than what the rear provides??

What Endcan are you using?? A small video of the exhaust note would be nice

Thank m4ugr8, the lowering springs are on all 4 wheels, the set up i got was so that i get this look where the front is lower than the back!. Using a magnaflow endcan, now added a straight pipe to it, but its scary loud! Have to get a mid muffler to subdue the sound a tad bit, cuz i cant hear any music inside the car. Cheers though!

Thanks for all the info. The car looking very very nice. Any further mods planned on this? I am a FAN of Loud Exhaust so I would like it nonetheless

The lowering springs have added to the "look"..the car is looking brilliant. When I saw the first picture, even I thought the wheels may foul with the wheel arches on full lock or hard cornering, but you already answered that - it does not.

So that is great.. how is the car running as in mechanically sorted out ? Have fun !!




Cheers
