Those the ones that just went through the for sale section?

If so, thanks for saving me from myself, I was soooooo close to buying them...

Someday...

I'm placing my Xida order this weekend. Since the VR-1's aren't due until March-ish I'm gonna get the suspension "correct", then upgrade tires...

I like how you did your first season on bumpstops and one on Bilsteins but you already know how good they are.

I had to cheap out (already in a NB, so stock top hats, and w/o the helper springs), but they're XIDAs!!

I've gone from Bilsteins (my car started life as a 10AE), to Ground Controls, to Teins and now to Xidas! Who says you can't teach an old dog new (better) tricks?!
