    Notes: Gives quite a firm ride, but I use it as a daily driver and no kidney replacement so far
    Front wheels scrape the plastic guard liner on bumps and at full lock sometimes hit the metal - e.g. backing out a driveway at full lock.
    Underside (exhaust) scrapes on some bumps/badly shaped driveways, etc, so I tend to avoid shopping centres.

    I'm currently running the OE staggered Style 42 BBS (225/45/17 7.5 et41 F - 245/40/17 8.5 et41 R) with H&R Cup Race springs and Bilstein HDs (not sure of the spring weights). Considering maybe going to a square stance setup for more meat up from and possibly rotating the tires, but don't want the car to look like a "special needs" case.

    Thoughts?

    Velocity Motoring v703 CSL Replicas in Hyper Black
    http://www.velocitymotoring.com/wheels/v703/
    Front: 8.5" x 18" 5x120 ET40
    Rear: 9.5" x 18" 5x120 ET22

    0 Spacers up front - keeps scrub radius basically equal to stock
    15 mm Rogue Engineering spacers in rear - keeps scrub radius similar to stock

    Could easily push wheels out all around if desired.
