Ooo...

Very beautiful! So, is it all the way Kleemanized in these pics? Because that would make it one helluva sleeper IMO.

Thanks!
Im waiting for my cams and the exhaustsystem, after that there are no more options ref to engineuppgrades from Kleemann. My dynotest says 513 hp and 700 Nm so far, its pretty fast, but its spinning up to 100 km/h.

Thank you in advance.

Well I live in Sweden with one of the highest taxes in the world.
I have to pay about 6000 US$ for all, that includes reprogramming the ECU.
Totally i have spent 280 000:- Swedish Krona on my Kleeman installations when its ready, its about 40 000 US $

1st and 4th pic looks sweet, I love looking at great photography. Ever considered lowering your car? The 2nd and 3rd pic would look nice if the rear didn't look so high.

Great looking car, congrats! I would recommend you upgrade to Michelin Pilot Cup tires on your car though (235 front, 265 rear on 19's), they make a huge difference in grip. With that setup, you can lower the car by about an inch (I used a carlsson/bilstein suspension), however, your fenders would have to be rolled slightly.

Kleemann offers Toyo, and I think that I will buy 19" wheels, guess that it effects the mad spinning car in a positive way

19inch wheel good but the kleemann ts6 is expensive get something like the carlsson u/l16 they are extremely light and classy.

Do get the kleemann lip spoiler.

Yes I know that Kleemann is expensive, I will buy my wheels from another dealer, light ones ofcourse. Im not sure about the frontlip, I like the car as it is - a sleeper.

thanks for the info. I am trying to work out which blue to get myself so these pictures really help. Will either get the same as yours or pay a bit more and get the mystic blue.
