Haha, good catch. These are actually custom versions of the Ohlins that were available for my car. Ohlins didn't make a coilover setup for my car (just springs and dampers), so I bought a custom coilover conversion kit for these shocks.

Very expensive yes, but I've been in someone's car who had them, and they were extremely impressive!

Got my side skirts painted and added a front lip and lower rear valence. Also, dual central exhaust!

Yep, still have the 07! The car doesn't get driven much, only 23K miles on it, haha.

Mr Greek is decent food. Very healthy and good value.

I went out for a photoshoot with my car earlier this month. There was alot of fog everywhere, but I think the photos turned out great!

Can't see the photos.

Man, 23k since new is very little. Go out and enjoy that car a little more often.

A little more underexposure than I'd really like. :)

I know, I really should drive the car more. I really think I spend much more time tinkering with it than driving it, haha.

Downpipe will be installed tonight.
