Icon1 update since i read alot more than i post

Recently been getting my money saved up for a couple mods and work on my car. Since I'm not much of a mechanic but work in the industry I have been learning little things here and there. Always observing and sometimes doing a couple things at the dealership I work at (Mercedes Benz)

Two nights ago I hit some ice getting into a parking spot. Sounded like I did more damage than I actually did. Went to check up on it yesterday after noon during work. Didn't smack up anything but managed to scrape up a little bit of the splash guard underneath the car. No biggie

Decided to take out these cheap ol fogs that came with the car when purchased the car. It was easy. But noticed why they stopped working .(bad grounding or something ) after wards relocated my front tags.

Hopefully by spring time timing belt will be done ,and a coil over kit will be followed up by that. For now ill have to enjoy the rally courses when it snows. I bet everyone is getting sick of it. esp if you live in the tri state area.


And if any one has any coil over ideas would be helpful. I'm not trying to be low and slow I just want a comfortable ride but not to much sway in between turns when I want to take em at a good sped.

Thanks everyone for reading.

You should make a build thread to keep all your progress, that way its chronicled from start onwards! ****ty about the ice... Winter is a cold mistress.

As for coilovers there are tons of options that would work for ya. What's your budget like? I would suggest Function and Form Type 2 coilovers or Tein Street Basis, or something along the lines of that. From what I've heard everyone loves the F&F Type 2s.

Thanks man. I'll look into starting that. Haven't been putting that much work in to it.

As far as budget goes. I want to try to keep it under 1k . I know down the line replaces lower and upper control arms would be a wise choice.

I plan on getting the F&F's as well at some point this summer. As Garurumon said, Start a build thread. Ive been a member since August, and just made one like 2 or 3 weeks ago.

I currently have the F&F type 2's. had them for about 5 months now and they're pretty dam good for the money. they are smooth when driving but just like all other coilovers they still feel hard when you hit cracks lol. but yeah i'd definitely recommend them.
