Got something new at my door step today! *lowered!*

After two weeks of waiting, my D2 coilovers finally came today!

I just unwrapped it initially, opened it like it's the best Christmas present.

and I gotta admit, it's so beautiful in purple, I was almost drooling over it for a min or two.

Then I thought...wouldn't these coilovers have their brand name tag attach to them? Like the huge brand tag you get from buying Polo (the Polo brand)? So it verifies that it's real...but then...is there such thing as an authentic D2 coilovers? Did you guys receive this type of brand name tag when you purchased your coilovers brand new?

Pix

I actually put them back in for this picture, and I already opened the zip bag between the coilovers.

lol not to be a jerk (as usual) but shouldn't you know how D2 coilovers look by now.

And it's noted that he didn't put it on yet.. so you must mean pics of the coilovers.

Here.. google images..


but anyways, nice pick up.

This was what I was trying to say. I don't get that black card thing. You can see them from the picture icy posted. I was paranoid about fake coilovers that I read online earlier. Shred some light please...

Oops, I didn't know the new forum style doesn't show my location anymore. I live in Elliott City, MD near route 108.

I ordered them from eBay for 600$ after 30% off =)

And I rarely order anything from eBay, that's why I was paranoid
Then I looked the package label, the shipper shipped the coilovers straight from Taiwan.

V6 Pawer=the hardest part is getting what you have in there out now. since the D2s are shorter they just slide right into place. will need a floor jack for the back to push the brake up to bolt it in.

the guide i used my 1st time.now iv done it 10+ times.ha

*dont take the backseat out,just move the cover.ha
