I think this is the first time I've posted pics here....

New H&R coilovers installed last weekend - very happy so far! [drive]

It's a '99 1.8TQM, Volcano Mica with the sport checkered interior.

What I'd like to do now is get some 2.8/S4 chrome window trim - has anybody here swapped this before?

Thanks,

What ride height is that for the front and rear? That looks perfect. [hail]

the trim swap is nearly impossible, it gets so mangled....

Awesome color!!! Chrome may be too much IMO. The drop looks real good.

No chrome blah, car looks outstanding!!! But a big brake kit would look sexy!

Ding! You win the prize.

18x8" Ace Lolas. I got them with the car from the p.o. (even had a 5th one never mounted just in case). The p.o. did some intersting mods for me; neuspeed .8 bar, x-drilled zimmermans, the Lolas, a V&S short shifter, and an ECS magnetic drain plug [O_O].

Since getting it, I've done the CC's, a centre vent boost gauge, the coilovers, and many maintenance jobs.

The drop at the time of the pic was 24 31/32" front, and 25.5" rear.

I agree with slopoke, Boxster brakes are on the to-do list!

The reason I'm asking about the trim is that I actually want to do a titanium-color trim, and match the grille & rings. ( and some interior parts too [;)])

Thanks for looking!

nevermind the fact the trim oxydizes after a while and looks foggy and crappy, or can chip off. black is way better.

maybe they're trying to let it grow higher to cover up that junk car back there.

I put on H&R coilovers on sat. and I love how the car ride how much space is between the wheel and fender on your car I have two fingers in the front ant three in the back.
