Lighter blue S4? Live out in GR area or somewhere out west?

There was one at the Grattan track day with Yonkers and I. In the AM we were faster than him around the track but as the tires get heat soaked towards the end of the day he was able to pass us decently easy enough.

It didn't lift it too much, but it's noticeable. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it at this time. I'll try and get some later today and post them.

beat3rfocus, I didn't lift it on purpose, it was the new springs I had put on. But it will come in handy when I start doing RallyX with it next year. As for the Brembos, I'd just like to have something better than stock and from what I've researched, I would need 17" wheels in order for the brakes to fit properly.

Timmeh!, Yeah, Mike Kuss.

Yeah, when I had others in the car with me, I was scraping the front bumper on the edge of the driveway because it lowered it so far down.

Learn to drive...lol.

I had my car lowered 3" or so. Barely scraped the front. Rubbed with a full load of people or cargo only on big dips.
