Thanks to Outcast Garage, I finally was able to order my authentic Chargespeed fenders. They stick out 20mm wider than stock. The car is finally going to the bodyshop soon for install & paint!

My car is currently sitting at T&L Autobody in El Monte, CA getting the bodywork stuff done.

Today we test fitted the Chargespeed fenders. Fitment is on point!

The problem is, with the way that Chargespeed fenders came out from factory, there's still quiet some width to the inner lip, which isn't going to give me the clearance I need to fit my wheels correctly.

Honestly I had/have both setups.
A lot of people who haven't had this type of air suspension setup would claim that they ride like *****, but they actually ride like coilovers if not stiffer than what I had (Stance GR+)
