    Like every car you have to make it your own, so a couple minor changes to the 997 for spring time to make it mine. There is not really anything more I will do to the car after this, so I can say its pretty much done for me.

    Picked up the car last fall just before the end of the season, got to put about 350 miles on it before hibernation. It's a 2006 C2s with 18K on it now.

    First thing was to address the exhaust, and one of the best bang for your buck and great sounding mods is the "gundo hack/ or fister" mod for the exhaust. Jason @filthy habits was able to take care of that for me and great work as he always does of course:

    I threw in some H&R springs to remove some of that ridiculous wheel gap the car had, and this way I could also keep my PASM factory adjustable electronic suspension too, good compromise for me and the wife when she rides along.

    Picked up some BBS LM-R's for the car next, they were used and I will probably refinish the centers and maybe even the lips to get them back to perfect again as they were not in the best shape. They are good enough, but could be much better, the prior owner used them for track I think and they have a decent amount of marks on them, but i was able to clean them up to be usable for this season and the price was right on them.

    Picked up some spacers for ECS to get the fitment perfect, really like how they machined these to fit the OEM hub and still be hubcentric at only a 10mm spacer.

    Here it is back on the ground and just awaiting an alignment next week:

    Looks great, Jeller! You could always refinish those and not even need to dismount the tires. Pull the faces off and polish the lips. Unless they have clear coat on them :(

    They do have the clear coat on them.... I will decide come fall/winter how much work I want to put into them. Having the tires dismounted isn't the end of the world and I will have all next winter then to work on them if I choose to. The lips are not terrible sooo I may just pull the centers out and powder-coat those.
    Thanks for the wheel pics you sent me too btw, that was cool of you .

    No problem! Even if I would rather see some 52s on here, these look outstanding!
