I love the way the Comets look, they came out pretty good, after I refinished the edge.<br>I washed the car a few days ago, so it is not super clean, but you guys get the idea.<br>How do I get added to the 70 Series Owner's Gallery?<p><br><IMG SRC="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/dicostal/DSC042772.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/dicostal/DSC042762.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

Very nice! I'm envious of the Commets and the "M" transmission <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Here are some pics of my car (Volvo Grrrr)

Car looks nice, and I love the color (same color as my '98 XC, and one of the main reasons I bought it). The Comets look good, but I'm more of a Perfo fan.

Re: Here are some pics of my car (JRL)

I did not think the car looked that bad, anyway lowering with new shocks will be my next mod, I was going to do it this summer, but after I've installed the IPD sway bars, and HD links, the car is so quite, and smooth, so I will probably wait till next year for this.

Darn everyone having my car! Nice ride man, just drop it a bit and it'll be perfect. It's very odd to see what my car would look like without any lowering, and it makes me realize how much I actually dropped it:<p><IMG SRC="http://www.stillframeentertainment.com/comets/images/IMG_0238.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (AJF)

Wow, that is sharp! How much did you drop it?<p>You must have to be very careful on driveways, etc.

Re: (TheBricks)

Thank you guys<br>Steve Welcome to the Board, you'll like it here <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><br>I am very glad you like your perfo wheels, I wanted to try something different, the ride is not that different with 17’s, though these tires are not the best in the world. I have to say that with the new sway-bars, the car feels a lot better, not great yet. Eventually I'll do shock, and might lower the car an inch, not more then that... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Ciao<br>

Re: Here are some pics of my car (roberts2036)

Okay, took some pictures of my S70 yesterday after getting it cleaned up. Guess my question is concerning the ride height on mine too. Like Dicostol, I used the Bilst. TC's as well (remember JRL, that I complained about ride height last year when I first put them in?). I know they've settled some but to be honest, not enough, from comparing my pics with Dicostol's and AFJ's. You be the judge, and tell me what you think. <br><IMG SRC="http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/3475/side23nt.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/422/keeper0zm.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>You can see "Ruby's" reflection off the rear panels in this picture.<p><IMG SRC="http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/5228/sidekeeper1ox.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Sorry that image quality isn't so good. I was in the shade but the rest of the neighborhood was too well lit and it had it's impact on my camera's light sensor. I did try to brighten up the dark areas a bit but this is about the limit.

Bump.....<br>Although this part of the board has been very active today, none of the stuff from the middle to the bottom has even been looked at. Just want an opinion....

MIJ sweet ride <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">.<br>Your car seems lower then mine. I did not change the shocks yet; my car still has original shocks. How do you like the Bilst. TC's, did they make a big difference in the ride and handling?

Thanks for taking a look. Yes, love the TC's. Between them and the IPD suspension parts the ride is like night and day. Just wish it was manual like yours...but you can't have it all, I don't guess.
