It doesn't look too bad from 5ft, but boy would that drive me crazy haha. Looks really good though on someone else's car haha. Also I can't judge since my lip is literally falling off and barely being held on.

Update! Got some rear 15 mil spacers with extended lugs from h&r, cost about $160 shipped. The install went smooth; only had to remove the calipers. Fitment is looking a lot better. I no longer have the rears tucking and front poking, they both poke now. I’m gonna get an alignment tomorrow to add a bit of camber to make it all seat good.

Side skirts are mounted on now. It was a pain in my arse to do so. Required a lot of sanding and the skirts scratched off a fair bit of paint. Oh well, skirts are off to paint tomorrow!

Another update, I bought a set of camber bolts for the rear wheels because I got sick of the fender rubbing when I hit big bumps while driving. They were around $20 from twos r us. It had them set at a middle level of camber. My front coil overs came with camber plates so I just maxed those out. Due to the camber I was also able to drop the car over half an inch, thus slightly making my front and rear tires tuck in the fender. I’m predicting 3 degrees up front and 4 degrees in the rear based off of a protractor.

Update! The skirts got done with paint I love how they look. I’m not sure what to do next but I’m thinking an autopista spoiler and a grams styling carbon diffuser. Then onto the suspension rebuild.

A color matched front lip and a set of Greddy or Boarder rear spats would make all the difference in the world IMO. Otherwise so far so good.

I plan on getting some border spats soon, but I don’t know if I agree with you on painting the lip. I actually just installed some diy side splitters that are also black and they add some black color flow back into the side skirts

your car man, dont let me or anyone dictate what you do lol. I agree the little splitters under the sides tie in the front pretty well.
