Volks are hands down the best wheels ever. If there's any lesson I've learned from selling my last three sets of Volks...it's to NEVER sell Volks! I've regretted selling every single set, hahaha. I just need to start a collection.

Do you feel the upgrade from RS to RS Pro was a good step? I am debating right now if going with a remote canister damper is worth the extra pennies.

Best of luck with your continuous journey with your car. Keep us posted!

Oh, and I voted for you for COTM!!!
Yes, I regret selling my RE30's already....I totally agree. I will Volk so long as they continue to be JWL+R & VIA certified.

To be honest, the remote canisters were more of a convenience item than something necessary, since it's easier to reach the compression adjustment knob. I sold the RS's when I got the RS Pros, and the new owner is completely satisfied with them. As for me, it got more complicated as I now had to deal with making nitrogen pressure adjustments, adding another variable to the existing compression, rebound and spring rate ones. Sure it's a pain getting under the car to do adjustments, but I think RS's are good for 90% of weekend warriors out there, whereas the RS Pros require more attention.

1/3 hood/fender and full bumper clear-bra. I hear I'll regret it later when the paint discolors due to it being protected on one part of the hood and not on another, but I'm not regretting it right now. That, and photo editing. My car had just come back from a track day weekend when we put those TE37's on, and if you look really closely, you can still see some of the dust build-up.

What's the specs of the RE30?
They were 19x9 ET15 and 19x10 ET15. Was perfectly flush for both me and the new owner with normal M3 alignment specs. (i.e. The neg. 1.6ish camber and such. I'm now on neg. 3 up front and nothing really looks flush anymore! )

Yes! Thank you for everything Ricky, I can't wait to finish dialing out my suspension! Sounds like you'll have fun helping Josh out with those Motons from now on too.

And thank you everyone else for all the kind comments! Much appreciated.
