rosscarlson Posted March 17, 2009 Share Posted March 17, 2009 So I picked up my 2009 Spec.B 2 weeks ago tomorrow and so far I'm loving her (Ginger is her name). I've started my mods and wanted to see if I could solicit any opinions or thoughts. My goals are this: - Awesome handling. I do about 6-8 track days a year on road courses (including a few schools). I'm doing a 2 day stage 2 Lotus school this April (did stage 1 last year). So I'm all about handling. - Comfortable daily driver. Notice this is second. I know she'll be bumpy because of the suspension but I love the fit-finish of the Spec.B - NON-RICER. Sorry, I don't mean to offend, that's just not the look I'm going for. Most of my friends are German/Italian fans (Audi R8, 911 Turbo, Lotus Elise, and several S4's and M3's). So I'm looking for as classy and adult a look as I can get. I love that this is a sleeper car. Ok, so here's what I've done so far: Suspension: - K-Sport adjustable front/rear coilovers (camber adjustable) - Wilwood BBK (4 piston front, slotted rotors front/rear, SS lines) - Whiteline front/rear sway bars (on order, here this week) - MB Wheels Gear R 17x8 rims (19lbs) - Potenza RE-01R 245/45/17 tires for the track (I'll run my stockers for daily driving, oh and my Blizzak snows are on in the picture) Motor (ordered/have just not installed) - Cobb short throw shifter - K&N Typhon CAI - Perin down pipe - Tatrix cable - Custom tune (when parts are on) (looking for other power mod suggestions) Other mods - Disabled seat belt chime - Enabled Nav while the car is moving - Enabled video on the Nav screen - Ran an A/V iPod cable for my iPhone - can watch movies from it - Debadged everything in the rear (other than "Spec.B") Soon I'm going to paint the chrome on the grill black (and the lip, it's only on as a test) and clear the signal markers from the headlights and paint the chrome black. I tried tinting my rear tail lights this weekend but I could only find auto tint and it wouldn't stretch around the lights for a perfect fit. I really like it (other than the wrinkles - I tore it off) so I may try it with the right material. If I do it I'll make sure it's perfect, no wrinkles, bubbles, etc. So without further ado I give you Ginger.

And finally a closer look at the rims and front lip (can't wait to see the BBK under those rims) http://www.jasbone.com/pictures/Spec.B%20-%20Version%202%20%28lip%29.JPG Thanks for reading guys, this forum has been a huge help so I really value any input (good and bad). -Ross Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
