I haven't done the alignment yet, so far the car runs fine. About the camber kit, I dont have one, but, the front look straght, somehow the rear look toe out little bit. Handlingwise, improved alot in the front, a little in the rear. Infact the rear still look stock height.

Love the stance. Sits very nice. Now all you need is... a...<p>BODY KIT, BODY KIT, BODY KIT!!!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>hehe. <p>So someone else was saying the R calipers mount right onto the stock S60 mounting brackets? Can you verify? Did you get yours from the dealer? I wouldnt mind finding a used pair of fronts at a yard and throwing them on my car.

Thanks for all the commons. Since I'm a little short on cash right now, I think I would put the money on a ECU instand of body kit. Our cars are too heavy for just 200hp. Beside, there are only 2 kind of body kits on the market anyway. ( Evolve and MS, as far as I know) If I do body kit, I would get a front lip, side skirts, and paint the rear black piece, because I have a 4inch single muffler, and I kind like the low front look. What do you guys think? <br>About the R calipers? Yes it mounts right onto the car. I found no problems at all while installing. I got mine from Eurosport Tuning as a whole front and back set. If you know someone from the dealer, they may get you a good deal. ( like I got a turbo pipe for 80dollars, reg.$260)

Re: (S60Driven)

I haven't mesured, as you can see on the picture, the front can go pretty low, but the rear still look stock height.

Re: (phuz)

Theres a guy that lives by my house in Malibu thats I believe low 30's. He has like a $30+ million house. Bought another $4-5 million house right down the road, put a few million into it to have it converted into a massive garage. He's probably got just about every luxury sports car you can think of behind the massive gate guarded by motion sensors and cameras. I know he at least has a Carrera GT and one of the new Zondas cause ive seen him driving both.<p>He started a software (i believe) company when he was like in his 20's and sold it about 5-6 years ago.
