She got him to stop & local cops did a “report”. No fault or anything & he’s got The General so we’re absolutely screwed based on prior experiences with shitty people/shitty insurance.

They’ll blame us, Progressive will throw their hands up (calling it now).

It MIGHT buff out, and I just popped the bumper back in. She was going 50mph so if I’d put the stock shit tires back on to powder coat her Audi wheels already the kid and his GF would probably be dead.

Michelin AS4 FTW, because let’s face it Nissan driver or not I don’t wanna see anyone get t boned at 50mph

That’s wild it was so minimal at that speed!


Shit… my bumper pops out that after a 5 min drive 😂 or an air out park job

She just barely got his rear corner of his bumper as he crossed in front of her.

That’s what I’m saying on the OEM tires the difference in stopping distance would have be painful at the very least

Glad she's ok. The damage doesn't look too bad, all things considered. My rear bumper pops out like that because one of the plastic tabs is broke, so at least it popped back in. My wife's been making fun of Altima drivers as the worst for years, before the memes, so of course it was someone in an Altima

Vibrant racing one? Ive heard most people use the j but i have the same DP, had 3 not ready also. This gives me hope for next year (waiver’d luckily this year in NC, not sure if that will fly next)
I used one from emdauto, o2 spacer with adjustable inserts.

My buddy sent some killer pics from Fastivus, including this one with some daylight under the back left tire! I also finally purchased the replacement DSG for my GSW4Mo. It's a remanufactured Mk7 Golf R DQ250 from Volkswagen. VW only uses the case for their rebuilds; so it's essentially a brand new transmission!

Def. knew this was out the box finish with the gray but took the chance since I wanted to try a different look than the black - so far in this lighting at least I really like it together. Also… tons of brake clearance with these the problem no is with the larger strut bodies on the bags it need a 3mm spacers which just add the poke I’m already going to combating with lots of -camber .
🤷🏼‍♂️

Those are sick. If you're looking to sell the hypergrams in a few months I may be down 😁

10.5” et35. Will take much more negative camber… I was at -2.8 as my recent revised “calm camber” adjustments lol. Before that I was at -5.4 fronts and -3.5 rears. With the 9.5” et22 rear wheels, I will have to go back to -3.5 in the rear and for fronts front… still praying -5 will be enough 😂
