    I installed my Stoptechs this last weekend- here are the pics!

    Oh, thread with unboxing HERE

    Cliff notes (late, don't want to write an essay):
    Front/Rear all upgraded
    Amsoil fluid, feels great, 2 12oz bottles to flush/bleed the whole system
    TSW Nurburgring 17x9 +63 fits with no spacers
    Net weight gain = 0.0 lbs (-.2 lbs front, +.2 lbs rear)
    Video demonstrating clearance at the bottom

    It stop good. :D

    Some of the guys are running as high as +72 to clear larger tires in the back. I think one guy has a +80 offset for whatever reason in the rear.

    Thanks!

    But it's diiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrty. :( I haven't washed it since uh... I forget. 2007 maybe? Don't remember. I did shoot some pictures at NTB after I got my alignment, but the sun was behind the car so you can't see the wheel gap too well (stupid me). I'll post those up in a sec- got a more important post to write first.

    :D
