Very nice. I have a few questions for you. How do the H&R Springs ride and perform compared to the stock 55 springs? Did you roll your fenders, any problems with rubbing? and what kind of gains did you get from the K&N filter. I'm looking into lowering my car too and wanted some more information before doing it. Thanks.

Re: Looks fantastic! Frontwheel to body looks very tight... any fender modifications?

No fender mods. It looks tighter than it really is, but it does rub a little sometimes.

The springs are a little stiffer than the stock ones, but the handling is much better. It also depends on what pads you use...I think I'm going to replace the front #1 with a #2 because it does rub a little bit sometimes when I turn the wheel. Otherwise, no rubbing at all.

Also...

The K&Ns really made a nice difference. They got rid of most of the annoying 'whooshing' sound that the stock intake makes, and definitely improved throttle response. I'm thinking of maybe holding a group buy for the K&Ns because it is a relatively inexpensive modification, that makes a noticeable difference. Email if you are interested.

Re: Re: Opinions on my car...

Question

Are you sure you have the #1 pad in front and the #2 in the rear. I changed mine and I'm pretty sure I have the 9mm in the front and the 5mm in the back. Just asking to make sure. Thanks again.

Question...

Your car look great!!! I'm taking delivery of a black MY2002 CLK55 in August, and is trying to decide on wheels. Do you have any more pictures of your car, since the BBS's look fantastic on your CLK.<br> <br> Thanks<br> <br> Michael

Thanks for the link. Please email me your price on the wheels. They make quite the impact. Thanks.

Hey Samir,<br> I just ordered a 320 and I'm kinda new to this stuff. Can you let me know how many inches you lowered your car and what size tires and wheels you put on?<br> Thanks
