Re: My daily

Received my AP Coilovers today! Probably lowered about 70mm on the front end now. Will have try to get the wheels aligned tomorrow.

Re: My daily

Front bumper from a sport would make it look even nicer

It would.. But it also sticks down a couple cm's further, compared to stock, and I then wouldn't be able to even leave the driveway without scraping

It will indeed - need to raise the front a bit, before it becomes so low the jack doesn't fit underneath it anymore
It's even more crazy how it can still be lowered another 50mm on the front end.. How would it then drive? I scrape the stabilizer mounts if I leave my driveway in a straight line.

Scraping = stress and damge

Only scrape because the driveway looks similar to this (the one on the left) https://goo.gl/maps/byTpr
I just need to drive over it at an angle, then there's no problem. Speed bumps isn't an issue.
I did raise it ~5mm this evening though. The jack didn't fit before I lifted it in the arches. I need a new jack

Re: My daily

Last weekend I got a decent price on Meguiar's Paint Restoration kit, as well as their new paint protection - so I went all in, and ordered a DAS6 Pro and some Lake Country pads later the same day. Spent a good 8 hours washing, claying and waxing the car yesterday!

Re: My daily

I was a little short on time today, but decided to do a quick test fit of my new Abarth bumper, that I just got home
Just a bit of sanding here and there, and it will be off to the painter (next week I guess)

Neither did I, until I saw it. It's got a Fiat stamp on the inside, so definitely genuine. Part no is 50901110. Produced by Zender.
