    Just one pic right now (it's not great). I just picked up the side sill extensions and will get some lowering springs here, too.

    I can wholeheartedly say that the jump from 165/65/14 Dunlop Enesaves to 195/50/15 Yokohama S.Drives is the single-handled most dramatic change in wheel/tire performance I've ever felt in nearly 25 years of driving. It totally transformed the car. Can't wait to get springs on it!

    Do I detect a Micra parked ahead of you?
    Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century

    Looks like a Yaris to me. We don't have Micras in the US ;-) Eventhough, his other car is about as rare as they come too.

    Yeah, it's a Yaris. I do wish we got the Micra in the States, however.

    I'm waiting for the weather to warm up a bit before doing the sills, as I want the plastic adhesive film to adhere well.
