so0 clean!!!
Thank you!

I agree a lower car would look better but the DC5 chassis shouldn't be lowered too much without significant suspension modifications. In fact, Spoon tried to develop a coilover set for the DC5 but gave up on the project because they couldn't make anything better than the stock Type R suspension. As far as I know, the A-Spec SS is the closet thing to the stock Type R suspension in the states.

I've only had mine for 2 months. Hopefully they'll settle a bit more in the near future. :)

Yeah same here. I've had mine for almost a month and i think yours are a little lower than mine. Hopefully it will settle a little more. Car looks great though man. DSM ftw.

Thanks! I heard the settling process can take up to a year. :dontknow: If I were in Cali or Florida, I'd go a bit lower but for Michigan, A-Spec is pretty close to perfect. Not to mention the affordable price and comfortable ride (well, compared to other aftermarket suspension setups).

I'm considering painting my wheels this color:



What do you guys think? I'm also considering bronze too. If someone could photoshop my wheels to that color or bronze, I'd really appreciate it!

BTW, where am I supposed to post photoshop request? The photography forum?

Thanks!
