    Ok.... so Vossen's CV3's are TWISTED:)

    So this is the story - about two weeks ago; I go into the shop for a "squeaking noise" everytime I went over a bump. Take the guys from Benz Elite out to show them the sound and they say - probably some ball joint thingy - lets throw it up on the lift. Get it on the lift and they look at me with this quizzical look and ask "how's the ride when you drive it" - I say fine - some vibration at high speeds - it pulls but the roads suck and supposedly they all pull to one direction or the other"... Then I get the "come here you ****ing douchebag finger"...I walk to the front of the car and this is what I see:

    Same thing on the other side. Apparently, I should have gotten an alignment:slap:; So I have them put on my winter 18's and immediately text Clayton (because anytime ANYTHING GOES WRONG WITH MY TIRES HE'S INVOLVED). I send him a pic, tell him somehow this is his fault and now I got to get new fronts - he simply says, "you may want to hold off on that, you should come and see what I just got...."






    Epicness coming soon....Vossen Content!




    Go to see them in person. . .F*&K!!!! He simply says - can't beat em for the money and what you get, awesome company, great people - don't take my word for it - call em up.


    Ring Ring - "hello Vossen"; "5 year warranty. . .no hubcentric rings. . .perfect offsets. . .F#$K!!!!!!! can I place and order now?"


    "no - we don't sell direct, however anyone on our dealer list. . ."


    Ring Ring - "hello D2"; "In stock...you can ship them straight to my shop in time that they'll be on when I get back from vacation....F#$K!!!!!"


    On vacation - get this pic from the shop


    Click here to enlarge


    They tell me - you get no pics - you have to wait to see them in person - f*&ckers....


    Go to the shop today (couldn't pic up the car because still waiting on parts)
    This is what I see:

    Did I mention perfect offsets:

    Then the guys say "notice anything different?" "the wheels looked so sick we couldn't leave your rotors with that nasty primer gray - we painted them flat black for you - seriously - didn't ask them to do it, they just did it because they thought the wheels deserved betterClick here to enlargeClick here to enlarge


    Click here to enlarge




    Finally, they said "don't forget to take your swag"; me "swag???"


    Click here to enlarge




    Seriously guys (and girls) - this has been, hands down, one of the best modding buying experiences I've had - the guys at Vossen and D2 are fantastic to deal with and the product is just outstanding. . .Click here to enlarge


    I'll post some proper pics once I get her back - get her cleaned up and. . .dare I say it. . .STAR droppedClick here to enlarge


    here's the stats:


    Fronts - 8.5 - 255's
    Rears - 10.5 - 295's (not a misprint and THANK YOU SO MUCH GUS83!!!!)


    Thank you Vossen, Thank you D2, F*&K you Clayton....Click here to enlarge

    Ok, this is awesome. Haha, great thread man.

    However, I demand way more pictures.

    Thanks Sticky - more pics will come but she's seriously NOT being shown until a proper bath and shortning of stanceClick here to enlarge - there's also some cosmetic "enhancements" coming under the hood that will set off the wheels nicelyClick here to enlarge

    The under the hood stuff will just be cosmetic?

    No worries, give her a bath and then do a full shoot whenever you get around to it. For now, this will be a great teaser and lead in.

    Yep - I know it puts me in the minority but once over 500whp - anything more means 1) wheel spin from a dig 2) getting into triple digits that much easier so I have to explain to the kind officers why I don't deserve the beating they're about to throw my way (and the fact that I need my license to workClick here to enlarge

    Had the engine cover, airboxes, fuse box and cabin air filter box all "dipped" in carbon fiber paint - the results are pretty amazing - I'll post pics of that as well when I get them back!!!!Click here to enlarge

    lies and deceit, we all know you're not stopping until 1) every performance brand is covered or 2) you're head explodes (my bet is the latter happening after you're finished with Europe, just when you're wrapping up North America about to head onto Japan. . .Click here to enlarge
