Are you near Washington? We're trying to get some kind of a spring thing organized. Interested?

See the announcement in the regional forum area.

Yes they will.

I have a set of rims from a 99' GS4 on my SC400. They fit perfectly.

However, there's a slight rubbing issue with brake calipers. It's not serious enough to bother me though.

Does anyone else have this rubbing issue?

I am not sure yet. I am still debating if I should or not.

I just bought a new factory front lip and would hate to scratch or scrape it. Everything I always miss scratching that piece for only less an inch or so.......

I am also afraid to lose the ride comfort on the Lex. My back already hurt from driving my modified Bimmer in the past few years.....

I saw that Aliga. Shoot this is so tempting. On the one hand, I don't want to lose the comfort but on the other, having a lowered SC is just so tempting.

Could anyone please photoshop my car so I can see how it looks like when it's dropped?

Darn you guys are going to make me file for bankruptcy sooner than I thought.

I am thinking about the GS400 wheels for my SC. Are you getting rubbing with the standard brakes?

What size tires are you guys running with those wheels? Any ABS or speedo issues?
