    Too sleek!

    Which springs and sway bars do you have?

    From a garage full of Pontiacs to a garage of Ferraris! :) Movin on up!

    Brent - the car looks so much nicer sitting at that level - makes your 308 look like it has a monster truck's wheel gaps.

    Beautiful car man, that goes for both of em, but man that rim and lower combo really make that 328 look mean.

    Thanks all! Omar, the shocks are QA1 from Summit Racing and the sway bars are from that guy on Ebay. Excelsier? or something. The wheel well gap on the 308 seems to look larger on the picture then in real life. However, it is still large.

    Congratulation!
    Please, post more pics of your new 328. It's so charming!
    Are the rims 17"x? ???
    Take care

    Nice looking wheels, makes the car look real sharp. Looks like the 308 has the euro bumpers.

    The wheels are 17" Compomotives. The 308 bumpers are US version. However, they have been "Tucked In". Bumper shocks drilled to let out air and then pushed in. Looks better IMHO. Gives it that Euro look.

    That looks superb...I like that blue more than the red of the other 308 parked next to it. How have the driving dynamics been affected? Is the handling a lot sharper now, do those tires make more noise than the stockers?

    The only downside to that set-up is it makes your stock 308 look like a truck! ;)

    Nice car. Congratulations! Wheels look HOT, although I find it interesting that they jut out from the line of the car.

    Brent - That looks great!!!

    It sure looks a lot meaner now. I like how you lowered it a bit & it is all about the suede steering wheel! :)

    I hope you love the car & it treats you right! The car is in the right hands - Brent is a super nice guy & I hope the car gives him many years of enjoyment!

    that looks fantastic! I love the shot from behind...shows how low and wide the 328 can be.

    It has a suede steering wheel now? I've tinkered with the idea of a suede Momo wheel for my car.

    Brent,

    Congrats on the car. She's a beauty! :)

    Brent's a tall guy, so he put his suede momo on the car to make it easier to drive - I think also a spacer.

    Yeah, I actually like the ones they had for the 348 Challenge cars in suede as well. Nice and grippy. Seen a few in pictures but not sure where I'd find one.

    Cheers
    Kevin
