Car looks good with that drop plus the F14s!

BTW, is that the CRT style lip you went with the splitters? Love that look, i might try to go that route if it bolts right on with the oem holes without drilling xtras holes on the bumper.

Mind tell us where you'd get it from?

I picked it up off Ebay (chinese rep). I honestly do not recommend going my route. Had it professionally installed and they had to cut a good amount out of my splitters to make it fit. Also does not sit where its supposed to. We had to move it up becuase it sat lower than the splitters and the lip did not make contact with the bumper. We moved it forward about an inch to make it make contact as well as sit flush with the splitters.

Also the rep quality was very poor. Fiberglass with CF wrap. The OEM unit has a very thin and sharp lip whereas this one was much thicker.

I saw this combo used with an OEM CRT lip and it looks fantastic. If want to go down this route, woueld recommend OEM.

Thanks for all the infos regarding the fitment of the lip and it s**ks for what you'd to go through to make it fit on the car. And yeah, i would rather spend more on a piece that doesn't require all the hassles to put on and more importantly the quality the least.

I've always purchased OEM pieces in the past for my two previous cars and never had to deal with fitment issues and i'd continue that fashion to save myself times and headache.

Thanks!

Lowered on KW HAS (max front and 0.5" from max rear)

Bolts are were purchased from Turner Motorsport. I think it came with the set of spacers I had on my stocks.

Do you know what your alignment specs are? Also, your wheels specs are pretty aggressive. I just ordered the F10Ds in similar specs, but for some reason on the wheels on your car don't look too aggressive. looks like you can even add spacers. Or is it the pics?

did not touch camber (natural from drop).

Pics are deceiving, bad angle. Fronts are maxed out. Any more and it would start to poke. Rears can go 3-5mm more or a fatter tire. If I can do it all over again, I'd go 19x10 +19 275/30R19 19x11 +22 295/30R19.

Hope this helps!

I think you're right about the tire effect. Another one I saw has MPSS and that tire is bigger than Hankook which makes his look more aggressive. I went with 19x11+27 but I can tell even before i get them on that I probably should have gone with a lower offset. I'll do spacers if I have to. I think I'm going to go negative camber in the rear so I can go lower in the rear. a -2.2 camber shouldn't do too much harm especially if the toe is good.

Forgestar actually told me to run 19x10 +19 in the fronts because it clears BBK. I originally wanted +23 but that wouldn't clear BBK. Hope this helps. rears should be no problem.
