Yeah if you coil over the car I think that would be the crown on the entire project. Looks so good.

Very nice, looking forward to seeing the picks when it all done.
What Wheel and tire specs are you running?

Ordered some proper hub centric rings from ECS and the ride is smooth again!

Next things to address is an inconsistent flashing CEL and minor misfires occurring randomly. At this point it could be either bad coilpacks or the battery as Iíve replaced everything else, and to be fair those items are due anyway. Iím also going to start aggressively doing preventative maintenance on suspension components. Iíve had a creaking noise in the rear, which Iím suspecting are bad bushings on the rear control arms (fronts were replaced ~12000 miles ago). Hereís a list that Iím thinking to get around to this summer/fall:
  • H&R coilovers (struts)
  • Rear control arms
  • Tie rods
  • CV axle on left side if absolutely necessary

The rear control arms are pretty damn expensive, and Iím having trouble finding Meyle HD for them. Is it more cost effective to have the bushings replaced or the whole control arm? One of them is $560 for each side!

Does that include rear too? I noticed that the part numbers don't match, but that may just be a formality??

Not sure. You can contact them to ask though. They should be able to tell you.

I installed that same kit on mine a couple of years ago.

It is just for the front.

Suspension components were fine... it was the plating on the JHM exhaust making the noise, so the shop added a little more room!

Summer updates:

Plenty of parts sitting around the house as I wait for everything to come together. Here's a quick list of everything that's waiting to be installed:

  • RS Flat Bottom Steering wheel
  • RS6 diffuser + RS ovals *Looking into sourcing new RS ovals from JHM
  • RS6 Headlights
  • Carbon fiber paddle shifters, vinyl for steering wheel air bag *May or may not keep the vinyl

To come will be:

  • Bilstein Coilovers *Looking at buying/installing these in August
  • RS6 Red Calipers w/ LW rotors
  • RS6 Bumper (and components) *Trying to source one.. deadline hopefully sometime in July-October
  • Maxton-Design RS6 spoiler, side skirts and rear side skirts

I'm also looking into some OEM Carbon Optic package components too as SIX's car looks absolutely stunning. Focusing more on the inside than outside for now until I figure out what I want to do there. Smiley
