Firstly I installed a new ZHP gear knob, it doesn't really goes that well with the Italvolanti but it's the only knob I like that doesn't cost 300 dollars.

Finally got to install the KW with new wheel bearings and top mounts. Oem top mounts for the front and E46 cabrio for the rear along with ECS reinforcements for some peace of mind.

Ride height was set to what we thought was acceptable for the shitty streets of Montevideo. Ride quality is quite good, it isn't too stiff and you can feel the suspension working over bumps. Only tested them for a few km but first impressions are good. When the suspension settles we'll corner balance the car and dial out the ride height.
