Very nicely done and excellent journal. I remember when you posted on m3 forum when you picked her up. Really love those wheels and choice of rubber sizes. Very well executed

Did not know you could just get a sticker for this! Mine is faded as well and I've just been dreading pulling the badge off, cleaning the residue, polishing the trunk, and then putting a new one on. Can you forward me the seller?

Thanks!

Thank you, sir! The seller on eBay is "blacksihatch". Great price ($5) and quick shipping!

How is the ride on H&R only?

I've been on the fence about getting a suspension "upgrade" (mainly to remove that front gap) and springs seem to be a very opinionated extreme on both ends here on the forums.

Honestly it's not terrible. I haven't tracked this car particularly, but they're fine for the street. I normally run them with the EDC set to "normal". It's a bit too bouncy on the "comfort" setting. Previously I ran KW Clubsports on my '08 and Dinan Stage 1 prior to that. The KW's were nice, but a tad stiff for daily duty, and the Dinan Springs were similar to the H&R's.

If your car is strictly a street car, I think lowering springs, and possibly even a strut upgrade (if your mileage is higher up there) is a good compromise.

Personally, I may upgrade to coilovers again in the future, but something more street friendly.. I actually did buy some JRZ RS1's a few months ago, but never installed them because I felt that they were overkill for my needs and sold them & spent those funds on Rod Bearings instead. lol

Great looking car.

Love your thread where did you get those tips from for your corsa I don't like the tip the exhaust originally brings.

Got them on eBay surprisingly. Just measured the inlet on the stock corsa tips, as well as the max width that could fit in the bumper holes and found something that matched. If I did it again (might end up doing so) I would get slightly smaller tips, as these are BARELY fitting in the bumper.

Been toying with the idea of ordering a pair of these...

Really want to find a set to see in person to make sure the tone of red isn't TOO far off from the Fox Red interior though...

Thoughts?

Good stuff, Iíve enjoyed your builds over the years.
The OP notes that your car has the cold weather package, but I donít see the headlight nozzles and Iíve seen you mention the desire for the folding rear seat. I thought both of these were part of the CWP (with the heated seats) - what gives?

I thought of them but I honestly couldn't live with that design on the interior long term. That's why opted for all black leather with heat.

You are correct. It was a typo. I copied the description formatting from my previous car build thread, and then edited it and must have missed removing the CWP.

Yea, kind of the conundrum I'm in. Might end up with just black fronts. Shouldn't look TOO odd
