^^^ Looks awesome!

The day the un-disguised pictures of the FL5 came out I was at the dealer putting down my name. Always liked the idea of the Type R and the reviews were always positive about the driving experience. The style now compliments all of that goodness.

No rubbin whatsoever until now and I did run the car with 15mm rear spacers but with the 275 tire it doesn’t look good for me. Have 10mm rear and 5 mm front spacers ready once I get the car back from detailing.
Is the pic above with the 275’s and the spacer offsets spec’s above (10mm rear, 5mm front)?

Did you not have lug nut issues with those spacers? I would guess the 6mm you can probably get away with stock lugs, but at 15mm, the stock lugs still dig into the back of the oem wheel, no?

Front spacers are blank 6mm and the thread left was ok even with the stock lug nuts. The 15mm rears are with studs and the oem wheels had the inner pockets so no problem there. All was done in 20-30 minutes. Both front and rear are hub centric.

I think I’d swap my CW for the black. To bad we don’t get it in Canada yet.
CW was my second option, but here in PR all the FL5 were spoken for before arriving. I was lucky I bought mine as a walk in and even more it was the color I wanted.

So now that you have had the springs on for a little bit how do you think the ride is compared to the stock FL5 springs? Any noticeable increase in stiffness or softness in any of the suspension modes?:hmm:
