Looks good, I like the back bumper. How is the resonance on the muffler? I've been kicking around the idea of getting one.

That is a sharp looking 98.
Not a big fan of the spoiler but everything looks spot on.

I love the bumper , i wish when i replaced mine I would have left off the bumperetts.

Good job.

shaman,

I love the exhaust, above 3k rpm it is perfect. My wife commented that it is a little loud for conversing under 3. That's with the top down. To be honest, I haven't tried it with the top up yet. If I had it to do over again I will still go for it.

By the way, Deluboz was great to work with. Great customer service, great product.

+1 with the back bumper. I like that a lot... even better than the stock one. Fiberworks you say? I'll check it out.

nice but I bet your elbows must be getting tired from cleaning a dark car with dark colored wheels!

Yeah needs new shoes alright. Once you add skirting 17" wheels make the car look smaller. I like those 'deep dish' wheels 986spyder has on his car. DJomlas's dark wheels with polished lip would like nice on your car too. Maybe paint those calipers a rarely seen color like on the G35.

Here are a few more shots. Should have the splitters installed on the front bumper this week.

Off to check out 986spyder and DJomlas's wheels...

Any other suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks.

YOUR RIDE IT LOOKING GOOD! I got my rims on ebay. So did DJomlas. There are some really nice silver ones like his for sale now on ebay also instead of black. But black would look cool on your car. Very cheap, only $699.00 for all 4!

I am checking out the rims that you mentioned. What are your thoughts on the 19" for $100.00 more (795.00)-- Pros vs Cons?

19s look cool, but you tend to loose allot of pickup when it comes to your flywheel trying to turn those big wheels. Plus tires for 19s are very expensive. Rear tires don't last very long if you are a daily driver and they are allot thiner in the side wall area. That's why I stick with my 18s. You never see people auto crossing with 19s for a reason, like I said you will loose some torque/pickup and you can feel your car moving sluggish when you want to merge into traffic.

Marco, how do you like that Fiberwerks rear wing? Easy to install and good quality? I've been considering the same wing and would like to see what your impressions are of it.

My only issue is that the trunk lid will not stay open with the added weight of the spoiler. I don't know if my deck lid shock is too old or if I need to find a new stronger shock.
