You say that because of the delta between the non-Sport suspension and CO's. It's like going from 17" rims directly to 20's.

Z, don't let him scare you. The ride comfort will be fine.

I'll be going from Swift springs on work out OEM struts to a set of true-type coilovers valved to the proper spring rate (Swift spirngs 13/8k).

The removal of the rear spring buckets and replacing them with a toe arm means I'll get a little bit of weight reduction too.

Been off this for a bit, but have been quietly working on Betty. I just finished up my housings. Waiting to detail the car and get some close up shots of everything. Matte black housing, gun metal eyebrow (to match center of wheels) and Porsche Panamera Shroud, Switchback Iron man LEDs, quad projectors, lenses and Daemons. The switchbacks is the uniqueness of this headlight build as its only available for coupes sizes, not sedans. But we custom fitted the Switchback leds into the sedan panamera shrouds.

Also acquired a Carbon Signal rear diffuser with spats which has to go into painting. I'm debating on sending the diffuser to get Carbon fiber laid on again, or just leave it gloss black.

Those headlights are going to look great! I'd also keep the diffuser gloss black... Will look great with VR

Yeah I've been leaning more towards leaving it gloss black. Now I just have to see if I want to match the spats to VR or leave them glossy black. I'm about a 2 month out until the car gets the front end resprayed, and that plus the Successful Automotive Front splitter are installed. I'm going to wrap the splitter in gloss black because they only sell it in CF, that way if I ever do sell can get a little more of my money back since it's CF.

Looking forward to seeing those Panamera shrouds in a sedan along w/ the Carbon Signal bumper parts, looks like you've done all your legwork there. Nice job!

Damn, damn, damn. Sweet stuff!! Can't wait to see it!!!

We definitely NEED an early spring meet!! Everybody's taken the bar, raised it, and then taken it and beat the hell out of the upgrades with it.!!!

People's imagination and creativity have gone light speed this year!

A hot winter ahead. VR is killing it!!

How do Go2Customs lights hold up compared to OnEighty? I haven't seen many examples on the forum of their work... not that I've specifically searched them out. The two most important things would be quality/warranty and customer service over the life of the product?

I do like that they offer more options for the sedan housings tho +1

Hmm. Published today on YouTube, so I'm thinking... that's your headlight, isn't it, Sean?

A little halo-heavy, IMO, but undeniably cool. Good for you, man.
