it's got the wrong springs in it, sits way to tall, should be at least 4" lower in front.

front springs are under so much load they are skewed sideways in their mounts.

I like the car... I like many cars, but I have a hard time wrapping my head around anything on 4 wheels priced over 100k... imo that`s just stupid money even if you have enough to spend.

If I went back for every car I wish I hadn't sold I'd be wearing my a$$ for a hat

I can't let myself think about it. Way too depressing.

4"?!? Sorry, but that's not right. Google image search, you'll see some that sit the same. Even if it is on the tall side, which I'm not convinced it is, it would be maybe 1-2".

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
