I'm running 12mm H&R spacers front and rear from Turner Motorsport. No rub at all and aggressive stance without any safety concerns. Longer wheel bolts were included. I think the rear has room for a few more millimeters if I wanted to push it, so 15mm is also an option.

UPDATE
Just got my downpipes put on, they were custom made for my car, race catted downpipes and a resonator delete. Here is a quick exhaust video

I still have the GTHaus GTC exhaust on there, so the first part of the vid is with the valves open, and the second part is with them closed (you will hear the difference)

Big thanks to Velos, as they helped make the downpipes that I wanted (didn't want cat less and didn't trust AR designs for the race-catted ones), and my ECU is in with them right now getting the stage 2 software flash. Also, a big thanks to RDB LA for taking care of the car for the last month and getting everything done.

Next step, vorsteiner goodies, matte white wrap and new rims

Full photoshoot coming next week, and ill make sure to keep this thread updated with any new additions in the future.

If you want to see the car, and your in the LA area, feel free to come out to Cars & Coffee on July 14th, I'm hosting a rally/drive from there to the HRE wheel HQ open house, and the car will be out, along with a hundred or so other exotics and sports cars. Hope you can make it!

I actually haven't heard it in person yet surprisingly, i went to the shop yesterday to check on it, and they weren't done getting the downpipes in. This is a video that the owner of the shop sent me last night after everything was all installed. I get the car back on thursday, and i will answer that question when i can haha.

got the car back from the shop today and it is a complete MONSTER. Massive HP gains with the stage 2 Velos tune, and improved throttle response and shifts along with one of the most insane noises I have ever heard. The race-catted downpipes are amazing. I will post some vids of sound and some pulls later, off to Cars & Coffee in the morning and a shoot coming later in the day along with some more shoots and events this week. If you want to see the car, ill be at CnC for the next 2 weekends in Irvine, along with Supercar Sundays in Topanga, and I will be at the HRE Open House next weekend in Vista/San Diego.
