Default 2012 GT-CS lower Front,K Springs,Eibachs,Roush Side splitters,installed & winter mode

as the title says, i got all those items installed plus Panhard bar and Rear LCAs (obviously not visible). I have my 20s waiting to get back on the car once the weather clears up, so i am excited about that.

It has been a horrible winter here in Minneapolis, so I have not had the chance to drive the car spiritedly to feel the difference. Now it's going back into the garage for... god knows how long. Thanks for looking guys!

first bought:


wheels:


winter mode + mods:

being a car enthusiast in Minnesota and places like that absolutely sucks. I moved up here from Dallas 2 years ago, and i cant even understand why someone would want to be a car enthusiast here, when you cant even have fun with a car 5 months out of the year. It's a complete waste of $.

needless to say, i'm working on moving back as fast as I can. It's beautiful here, but when you cant partake in your hobbies half the year, it's not worth living there.

Nice ride, I like what you have done with the car. I know the winters have to suck for you.

I have a distributor based in Minneapolis. They held a sales meeting in Baxter on January 4th and 5th. I was able to set a new personal best for a nightly low (-25) and a daily low (-15). We were supposed to go ice fishing but the guys said, he!! no, it's too cold. That sucks when someone from Minnesota says it's too cold.

I don't know how you guys do it, I was out 2 months with some issues to my vision and wasn't able to drive. That was hell to me, so i couldn't imagine what 5 months is like lol

it absolutely sucks. like i mentioned earlier. I have been dying to get out of minneapolis and back to dallas. I hate thast i've paid for this car for 4 months to sit in a garage. I pull it out every now and then but it's so boring to drive so slowly.

The only real ****ty part is paying for it to sit in the garage...that is if you store it. If you drive it rear round, there's only a handful of days that are really bad.

One nice part about having a couple months in the garage is a solid chunk of time to do some mods, especially ones that take some time and would take your car out of commission anyway. I'd rather pay for a car i love to sit than drive around in something i hated.
