    Seth,
    Sorry for the no reply. I seen your pm a while back, but it disappeared. Got it now. That is quite a low drop, but looks amazing. I don't know if I could go that low or not. Steep driveway and about 60 miles a day driving. I live at the oceanfront, so I would be worried about tickets with too dark of tint. It looks great though. I recently put on my Solo HF cat, and uploaded the Trifecta tune. Wow! It runs a lot stronger now. I only got it in October, so I am still new to Kappas, but not new to tuning and working on cars. Still a lot more to come. I have the backbone installed, and the rear brace to install still. Not much more than that though. A little at a time is how I will go. Future will be exhaust, bigger turbo maybe, tint of course, maybe some bigger brakes. We will see. Hope everything is going well.
    Steve

    Hey Steve, thanks for the compliments. It's almost to the point I feel is perfect.

    Suspension is just the Eibach Sportline (~2" drop) on the stock Bilstens but I feel any amount improves the look so drastically. Found them NIB on ebay for $50! (guy posted them here, too, but had misspelled the listing) and couldn't pass them up. There are many suspension options (ZOK take-offs are great) but since it's so quality from the factory I haven't felt the need to budget anymore past the lighter wheels.

    Haven't had a single issue with the tint, lack of front plate, RPi (muffler-less) exhaust, lowering... daily driving it for six years (28% tint is about a year old and I will usually lower the window when driving next to a cop during the day). It's been amazing run but I really think it's because it's not an import and I don't spend much time at the ocean front. Norfolk cops don't seem to care as much.

    What's the story with your kappa?

    thx, Seth
