Default Bagged E30 with a bit of a story behind it.

Well to make things short, my Dad bought this new in 1987, drove it off the lot. Drove it for years, this is the car I came home from the hospital in. He bought a new car in 2000, put it away for a long time in storage, and when I turned 16 I drove it. When I turned 17, I bought my own car, been through a few cars and recently now after a few more years I sold my WRX, bought a civic as a daily and used the extra money to bring this car back out of storage and give it some new additions.

Airlift Universal Front struts, Air house II rears, Bagriders manual management.

16x9 et 9 front, et15 rear. Rear needs a 10mm spacer but ill get to it.

Needs a 40 series tire in the front to lay out, but here how it sits now.













New Picture with my buddies bagged MK5

How cool is that story? Rode home from the hospital in it....awesome. Makes it even better that the end result is extremely tasteful. Well done sir.
