Nice Fil, ive noticed a massive difference since fitting the stainless, it sounds awesome and throttle response feels alot better.

If that splitters up for grabs il buy it from you mate! let me know a price and il come and collect!

Just grabbed myself a GL splitter this evening, pics to follow soon

Im running 195/40's on the front and 205/40's on the rear! Falken ziex 912's

I can run the car pretty low like this but the fronts have their limits with a 195 as the stretch is only subtle.. think im going to go 195/40's all round next when they need new tyres but you'll be cool with the above mate^^ just make sure your arches are rolled especially on the rear!

Cheers Ray, updates soon !

i got no arch on the rear lol. they were butched and hammered out about an inch of so.

fronts may be a prob since i didn't fold that lip over and now i've bonded arch trim on Sad

also thinking about camber shims for rear just to tuck rears a bit.
gotta give stretch a trial first tho.

cheers macca.

No worries manzi.. im running camber shims on mine now with 1.5 degree negative. Looks cool as funk and tucks the tyre so minimal scrub - BUT you'll notice your car will start like the taste of rear wheel bearings Crying or Very sad

As for the fronts, mine arent rolled at all... waiting to get it painted first then il just have them done so i can tuck 9's upfront! Cool

Looking forward to seeing your updates dude
