    You should go with a square set up it will handle better.

    and +1 I didn't know you got a 350Z when did that happen? Guess I'm not on here as much as I sued to.

    Yeah I had to take the dive. My pockets just weren't as deep as when I was living at home. Moving to Philly on my own a year and a half ago changed my lifestyle and my income. Insurance was jacked up almost $200 a month simply because of the policy change. So $600 total on the car just isn't what I wanted to be doing anymore. I began thinking that I should just concentrate on settling my debts and saving money, which is something I haven't really done too well.

    You all obviously knew I LOVED my STI with a passion, especially with all the blood sweat and tears (and money) I put into making it mine and making it run low 12s...but a change in mindsets occurred and I figured it was the time to move on. But goddamnit, I WILL have another STI Limited when I am ready financially...and this time, it will run 10s

    So I found a SICK used 2003 350z that was in excellent shape and previously owned by one of the salesmen at the dealership. The price was well within my asking range as well. Once I drove it, I kinda fell in love. It handles amazingly (better than my STI did ) and having a true sports car is an awesome thought to me. But god honest truth...I got this particular Z for the simple fact that it had the burnt orange leather seats

    Orange is my favorite color...haha. So overall, I am now saving about $350 more a month by having this car. Even the gas mileage is doing better. I'll tell you what though, the Linear power "curve" of the VQ engines are SOOOO different compared to an STI (obviously, haha).

    But damn I love the look of Staggered. Have some FAT 10s in the rear with a big ass dished polished lip, is something I have loved on RWD cars for a long time. But you're right...squared would be better for handling. Perhaps 9inch width all around...

    I got her roughly a month and a half ago. I'm yet to take any good pics however

    I'm running 275/35 275/40 on 18x9.5 RPF1's all around. Staggered is definitely prettier but between the square setup and the weight loss (stockers are really heavy at least the 06 ones are) there was a bigger improvement than I had anticipated.

    I'd go with square 9's... Function over form, dude.

    Staggered does look nice. It all depends on how you want to drive it. At least it's RWD, 98% of the Vortex are running staggered on a FWD purely for looks. I never did understand that.

    I didn't know you got rims. I remember you posting back when you were looking at them. Any pics? I <3 the RPF1's. I think I'm going 17x8 (gloss black finish with the red Enkei logos) on the WRX. I wanted to get away with '04 STI rims but I think I need something at least 8" wide. I'm sick of the wagon wheel look of the skinny stockers.

    Sorry I missed this but better late than never right? Here's a picture (not a good picture but none the less)


    Not everyone likes the meaty tire look but I think it's a better than the stupid stretch tires that a lot of people on the Z forum seem to like.
