Here is a street update:

Cause of this I am parking my car outside. You shouldn't have a issue coming out but going in is the pain. I was able to put my car in by reverse in the garage yesterday ( my car is dropped on kw sleeves) but the problem for me is when I come out. Which I decided to park outside because I'm scared that I will scrap/ crack my front lip.

I don't know about that...

There is too much of risk damaging the Front Lip...

That gap is 4 inches, and an M3 with the competition package, has a clearance of 4.2 inches. That's a little too close for my taste.

So I started hearing a clunking noise coming from the back along with a small bang on not-so-granny shifts. My diff bolt has broken before so I jacked the car up and thought if I just torque all four bolts on the diff, it should be fine. No luck. If I punch the diff, you can hear a rattle that seems to be coming from inside the diff. I'm still going tomorrow, but if I die along the way, I'm jumping in your car Vinny! Otherwise, service on monday

Well, after my neighbor and I built a mound of dirt, I tried backing out, and right when the front lip got to the mound my neighbor said "STOP." It would have scraped. The street is just too low.

No big deal, I have implemented plan "B"

See everyone at 9:00

I feel you. I was so careful with my lip. But being dropped wit a lip in LA, there are just some drive way exits that no matter how angled you are; you still scrape! After a few scrapes and a day at the track my lip needs a new clear coat. So now I'm just like F it. Lol.

See you guys soon. Will be nice to finally meet you in person Supercar Ace.
