Default New NB owner from Colorado

Hello, my name is Kody. I just picked up this 2001 NB from an auction with 82000 miles. I've taken it to the canyon a couple times and it has handled pretty well. I want to get all of the suspension worked out before I go FI. So far this is one of the cooler cars I've owned, and the convertible top makes it even better.

I bought them just for something cheaper, because it had been in an accident, and one of the wheels was completely ruined. They look kind of odd without coils as there is so much gap in the rear.

I agree, it looks rather silly. You need like 10' more camber and to lower it like an elephant is driving.

I've been looking at the thread for bilstein coilovers and they should be in the near future.
