Dude, I love your wheels. what are they? They look a lot like the TSW Hockenheim's. I have been trying to find this wheel for the last 5 years. Last year I sandblasted my basketweaves (stock BBS's) and painted them bodycolor and put them on. They are going on the 86 as soon as I find what I am looking for. I think that style you have look badass with the Cossie bodywork. Luckily I have two white car's, I'm putting all the body pieces off the 88 onto the 86. I never cared a lot for the gray cladding. Can you give me a model number on those wheels so my search will be easier. Thanks, Lyn

they are 17" BBS RX . Rare to find in 4x108. I drove 7 hours to get them, and 7 hours back..

A front strut installed correctly! I do wish you still had A/C so I could see if that would work for mine. Interesting the strut connection in mine is different than yours. Mine goes around the tower completely.

ya the 3/4 shock tower thing I dont get, it doesnt fit well on the tower. I think the ones that go all around the tower are better. Id like to try one of those.
