Another one we've finished recently is this Impreza.

Full Air Lift Performance kit with 3P digital management and ABP noise reduction compressor.

This one fought us a little bit with lots of seized or corroded bolts but we got there in the end.

I think the issue is lack of wheel fitment on most VAGs these days. Unless someone has a beautiful set of wheels that sit perfectly in line with the arch it can end up just looking broken.
Wheel choice is everything when building a show car and that comes right down to specs and even tyre choice.

A good example of that is Pedros E46 a few posts above. Without those gorgeous Work Meister S1s I honestly don't think it would have that same "wow" effect.

Continuing our JDM theme we had this GT86 Aero in for air suspension a few weeks back.

Still running the standard wheels for the moment but with a set of Work wheels being ordered in the near future this will look incredible.

Running Odin Air Sus with Air Lift 3P management and ABP 444 compressor.

Not one we've bagged but we helped fine tune and get this incredible Porsche setup properly.

The owner was having some small leaks and problems getting the Air Lift manifold to calibrate properly so he left it in with us.

We narrowed it down to a faulty manifold which Air Lift graciously covered under warranty, so once that was replaced we did the calibration, height presets and then a 4 wheel alignment to have it driving better than ever.

Crazy looking car with the Old & New kit harking back to the old flat nose 935s of the late 70s. I love it!

Here's something a little different....a Nismo Juke on air!

A cool little car we've done a bit of work on in the past the owner decided to go for full air suspension and had us fit some gauges he bought too.
Running a custom air suspension kit with Air Lift 3P digital management all it needs is a new set of wheels with a lower profile tyre and it will be sitting on the floor. He's talking about Work Meister S1s so I'm very excited for that when the time comes.

For the gauges Gary made a custom A-Pillar mount and trimmed it in alcantara. We supplied and fitted a coolant adapter for the water temp and a sandwich plate for the oil temp to get all the gauges working correctly.

A car I'm not normally a fan of but I really like this one because it's so different from the normal cars we bag. I'll be sure to post pictures when the time comes for new wheels.

Cheers,

Aaron

If you follow our social media accounts you might have seen this last night but if not feast your eyes on this.

So simple and effortlessly cool!

Being a modern classic and something of a rarity this E36 deserved a timeless wheel design. The owner wasn't convinced we would be able to get these wide OZ Racing Futuras to fit but with the right size tyre, a little bit of camber and the Odin Air Suspension kit with Air Lift 3P management we were able to absolutely nail the stance on this!

And of course, for the purists, this is all completely reversible if the car ever needed to go back to standard, but where's the fun in standard cars?

Love that!

The “little” bit of camber let’s it down for me personally. But the wheels and air combo looks awesome.
