Just finished up my 2 year of modification projects. Been fun building a ride that I have always wanted ever since my Brother let me drive his C3 when I was 19. The before and after pictures are pretty amazing too. Appreciate all the ideas I have taken away from this site and the great members that have been so helpful to me.
Thanks, Rick

I spoke to soon... Added some more mods with pics.. Enjoy..

After waiting so long for something so special, what a great feeling to finally have it just the way you wanted! Really awesome looking C7 you've got there, especially with the black accents and red calipers with the silver. Aren't we proud of our C7s!

Well done process and your post is also a really good "build" thread with its ideas and with its sources of parts.

Your car looks great!

How is the ride with the larger rims on your base? Do you have MSRC?

I agree that this was well done IMHO, it is Very Tasteful and enhances the car!! I have a Z06 and wish mine had some of your mods. Oh did I mention I am a little jealous of your exterior mods? One I am looking for right now!!!

Feel no difference and car rides great and looks even better. I do not have MSRC.
