FML the 4-door looks so much better. I messed up.

Nice thread bro keep it coming. Keeps me motivated. As soon as I elevate myself from broke status, I'll be starting a thread of my own to bring my CW back from the dead. She's not too happy right now.

looks good! how do you like the Konis? everybody seems to love them. I'm only looking for a subtle/slight drop, don't want to worry about rolling fenders, etc., and don't want the ride to suffer much. won't ever track the car -- it's my dd, so seems like a solid choice.

keep the pics coming :)
