Nah I don't like the Sugar Scoops. Mine's got the Euro-style lights with paint-matched round trims (works better with the black powdercoated brightwork)

Sugar scoops were the factory's compromise to meet the US's DOT requirements to deny us the much more effective halogen European lights. They were contrivances that also effect aerodynamics negatively. On an otherwise gorgeous car, they... um, aren't.

Yeah I do, but with H4s and relays, they're pretty darn bright. I may go with the Euro H4s at some point, but for now, I kinda dig the "Jag" flat light look.

And yes, she's on the road and corner balanced. I'm still bedding in the brakes and chasing some small details, but will do a write up impression shortly. I can say this though...she's truly wicked now. Heh heh heh

@Nick - Looking good brotha! Love the look of the 17s, and the stance looks nice!

I suppose if you must, but you both need bigger fenders.

It's actually hard to evaluate these different pics against each other. If you want to figure out what's working for you (after you've gotten the suspension tuned for your personal driving purposed and local speed bumps) you need to take a shot of each car fro the same position.

Shooting the car from down low make the car look great, but it throws off your ability to examine the stance.

I say set the car up for performance and you'll probably arrive at a cool stance by default.

Came across this old photo of my IROC clone I did on a 72T back in 1978...I know, but back then we updated!
