    Rob's PB ST2

    I was late to make the jump, having just placed the order October 31 but seeing as my car is scheduled to build this coming Monday(Dec 17), I will get this going.
    The car is just a Plain Jane ST2(no moonroof, no NAV) with Smoke Storm seats.
    Plans in my head right now, not necessarily in the immediate future are:
    -Lighter aftermarket wheels, sticking with 18"
    -Nice set of coilovers
    -Turbo back exhaust
    -Tune
    -HID Retrofit
    -Tint
    -Catch can(want to do this right when I get the car, actually already have it in my basement waiting haha)
    -RMM of some sort
    -Weathertech front and rear mats(already have these as well)

    I hope to get the wheels and coilovers done as the first major mods but obviously have to wait for some options to come available for the coilovers.
    First mods financed by the part out of my last ride(still have some parts left to sell):

    Showed up at work on Monday, right on schedule.
    I'm happy with the hood gap which was my main worry.
    I was also checking the passenger taillight gap and it isn't actually touching but is very close. If its going to cause chipping, would it be in contact with the paint at all times?

    Not in a huge rush to take it home yet as I'm not going to use it as my daily driver so I won't be buying another set of tires for it and the roads the are salty and gross.

    Rob T....in regards to the taillight and causing chipping, yes it would be in contact at all times. I checked mine and it is close, but does not touch. 1800 miles and no chipping.

    Finally got the PDI done today and got a better look at the taillight situation. The driver one was touching pretty bad along the bottom and the passenger was close. The technician pulled the lights and used a couple of layers of 3M moulding tape to hold them out away from the body slightly. Much better now.
    Bringing it home tomorrow.......

    Cleaned up ready to go:


    Brought the car home Saturday and must say, it's fantastic. Great power, smooth as butter engine, and terrific suspension. I'm not bothering with winter tires as its not my primary car but I'm going to try and get through the first tank of gas ASAP since my coworker filled it with 87.
    Also, gave the kids their own little taste of having an ST:

    Do those lower the car? Really like the way KW's ST sits. Not too low, just perfect.

    Which variant are these?? 3's??
    I'm thinking about a set of KW's for my ST, but will probably go clubsport model. Those springs look too soft for me.
