Would that fit the E90 or is it too long?

Space Grey coupe in Billerica, MA this morning (around 10am). Judging by the sound, there was an aftermarket exhaust on it. A silver WRX was closely following it.

I was in my DD Audi A4.

So as I was getting ready to take an elevator from the 1st floor to the 5th floor, some guy had the nerves to fart inside the damn elevator, he stormed out. I didn't have the chance to get out in time because the door closed. Thankfully, I got out on the 2nd floor and took the stairs to the 5th floor.

What an asshole lol

I suspect more will come (beyond Florida and a possible tie to the double homicide in Boston last July). Talk about a quick path from having it all to nothing. It comes down to making the right choices in life. Obviously he chose the wrong path (pure understatement).

I saw a nice looking Blue E92 M3 with ZCP wheels in the Seaport District last night. We were both parked in the lot across the street from Jerry Remy's. Was it any of you guys?

It looked stock...

Inspectors are giving me shit about my car being low. I've gone to about 5 places and they keep saying the same thing. Are you serious, just for springs being installed?

I also have 24% tints so that's something else lol

Anybody dropped had any issues with inspections? Damn, I don't want to rip the tints off but I'll end up getting them again lol

Anybody has a hook up for inspections?

Just HR Springs, 1 inch front 0.6 back. Car looks way lower though for some reason.

From what I've been told, they should be able to slide their hands through the top between the quarter panel and the tire. My tires are tucked inside so they have no way of doing it. Front seems okay.

I also have 15mm spacers front and back.

Why don't you just take the spacers out for the day? It should recess the tires back in and allow them to slide their hands in.

I was looking over the inspection rules and doesn't say anything about the tires being tucked in. According to the rules, chassis must be 2 inches off the ground.

Those people are full of shit. I'm going to print the rules and bring them with me on Monday.

From the main RMV site. Here's the link:

http://www.massrmv.com/rmv/inspect/

Click on the right link that says "Inspection Regulation". Scroll down to page 12.

This is what it says according to them:

(13) Altered Vehicle Heights. The original manufacturers specified height of motor vehicles with an original manufacturers gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or less shall not be altered by elevating or lowering the chassis or body by more than two inches , except that four-wheel drive motor vehicles with a original manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or less may be altered in accordance with the provisions of 540 CMR 6.00. The Registrar may periodically provide approved altered vehicle height specifications for said four-wheel drive vehicles. Any motorvehicle altered, modified, or changed beyond the aforementioned two inches, or the Registrar's approved altered height specifications, shall be rejected.


I just grab a tape measure and it's about 5 inches of the ground from the chassis. I also measure the lip in the front and it's about 4 inches off the ground.

Sounds just like the Hawaii RECON regulation that I never wasted my time on. The RECON inspectors would make sure you have at least 2 inches of travel. If you dont, you fail. lol My old NSX would drag on the ground with a 3 inch drop. I failed once and never went back. It was a complete waste of my time and money so I kept my California plates. Much easier and I didn't have to deal with Hawaii bullshit. Sounds just like MA.

I have a friend down on the south shore that will get you a sticker in no time. He owns a gas station and drives an extremely slammed 370z... And dark ass tint.

Hit me up. The station is in Hanover, ma
