Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find it? Purchased in Chicago, in October 2016. I was looking for a decently clean type S w/out navigation. I was really excited to get one with only 97000 miles and I'm a big fan of the Aegean Blue color. Maintenance When I got it the suspension was in rough shape. The shocks were pretty shot and the mounts were squeaked horribly. I put in new KYB Gr2's along with KYB mounts. I also did Moog ball joints, tie rods, and end links. I've also replaced the sway bar bushings. At 102,000 miles I put on Falken ZE950 tires which I've been happy with so far. Aside from that I've changed the fluids to OEM and it runs awesome. How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share? KYB Gr2 shocks have a sporty ride quality, but are quite stiff. What are you planning next? I want to the minor fix rear fender rust and put in new fog light housings. I'll also upgrade the rest of the exterior lights. What’s been the biggest challenge with this build? The power steering pressure hose failed at 104,500 which was odd, I had a couple wrong parts sent to me and the install is not very easy.
