Default My new ride

Thought I would post up some pictures of my new ride. I'll be looking for MOD advice in the near future. Here she is.

I'll ask the boss, but I'm sure she is going to tell me to pound sand. LOL

It's time to lower it. Sweet ride, who did the stripe work?

I'm going back to the dealer tomorrow to find out. I plan on putting a Whipple on it and in case I need a new hood I would like the same painter.

As for lowering it, the boss is making me wait. That's why I tried to get one that already had a few upgrades on it. And speaking of suspension, should I get a package deal or mix-match?

Thanks, the custom stripes really set it off. When we saw it, it was love at first site. All the other dealer MODs were just bonus.

Suspension, auto vs. manual and exhaust have be the main topics on the forum. Oh, I forgot wheels. Check out the many threads and you will find many answers.

For now I lowered only but I see the rest of the package in the future. But for now, ride and handling is great on just lowering springs.
