Yup, overseas.
And you know if you lived there you'd want lights with amber reflectors in them. You know you would. Anything to be different.

Yea I love them too, but once I lowered the ride, the front cambered inwards quite a bit so wasn’t so flush anymore… So had to find a slightly more aggressive offset ET29 instead of the Q60 ones that were ET40…

Not much options for ET29 over here… But found a set of brand new Advan RS that has been in storage for 13 years at one of the local shops 😂

You can see the YOM is 2008 😂

Those filthy, dirty, gritty boxes on leather seats make me cringe. Are they damp and moldy too?

I think your aversion to chrome and amber is driven by the power of suggestion from car forums and automotive "media" types, like my desire for a high horsepower station wagon with a manual transmission is.

Leather seats are detailed every month at the detailer together with the ceramic coated paint work and rims so no worries 😉

Stock is probably the most comfortable… But I can’t take the ride height and stance haha 😅

BC BR is height and damping adjustable, but the spring rate is probably still too harsh for my liking (damping set at +6 front from soft & 0 rear from soft).

Tanabe Sustec CR are height adjustable but not damping adjustable. But somehow the Japanese seem to have gotten it… Firm but nice comfortable rebound for daily driving. It’s been a month so far and I’m really happy with these Tanabe Sustec CR.

Hope my 2 cents help a bit! 🙏🏼
