    Long time no talk everyone! I apologize for having been m.i.a. for the past few months. Between work, moving to my new house and trying to sell the Miata I've been busy beyond belief. Anywho, I actually sold the Miata about a month ago and set out to find a car that I have always yearned for. Oddly enough, I didn't have to look long before finding exactly what I was looking for.

    Basically my criteria was simple. I wanted an '05-'06 Crossfire SRT-6, black, under 50k on it. They only made the SRT-6 trim for these cars for two years but only offered it in the US for the '05 model year making them super rare. I have always wanted one of these cars but they were always out of my price range as they were a $50,000 car new. But nowadays you can get them for reasonable prices. My reason for wanting this car was simple: I'm 27 and I wanted a car with a little more sophistication & class.....basically something a bit more age appropriate than my Miata, and something that I wasn't going to "outgrow" anytime soon. Furthermore, I wanted something unique. Being as this car was only sold in the US for one year and is based off a Mercedes r170 SLK320 chassis, it was an easy choice. I loved the RWD and boost of my old car and thankfully the Crossfire SRT-6 delivers on both of these categories, having a 3.2L supercharged V6 making 330hp/315tq.

    Anywho, a static slammed Crossfire is all but unheard of. Per my research it would appear that most Crossfire owners either a. don't lower their car at all, b. buy lowering springs or c. in a few rare instances I have found them bagged on gaudy sunken chrome wheels, and they are usually base model Crossfires, not the SRT model. But a big reason that these cars probably haven't been done up in our lovely end of the car scene is a severe lack of suspension options. The only fully adjustable coilovers I have been able to find for it are KW Variant 2's & Billstein's......both of which are super pricey and meant more for racekor driving than slammage. But alas, no-one ever said that going the unique route was going to be neither cheap nor easy.

    Below are a few pictures of the car (these were taken (the previous owner's driveway) as well as a photoshop render that our very own marinse (Sebastian) put together for me showing how I want the car to look after doing wheels/coilovers. I should be ordering the wheels/coilovers this week so hopefully it won't be stock height for very long! I'm going with 18x8.5F/19x10R 3SDM 0.06's since I think they look amazing on the car, and also because SRT Crossfires come factory with double staggered wheels and i'm even able to re-use the OEM size tires for a widdle baby stretch.....lol. I hate to disappoint you all, but the Crossfire is not going to be nearly as low as the Miata was. It'll be very low for a Crossfire but I plan on keeping it somewhat functional with minimal camber and a very light stretch.


    Le stock







    The car is already equipped with a Needswings CAI, Eurocharged Performance ECU & TCU tune and a Sprintbooster. That plastic engine cover is coming off so that the supercharger will be exposed.





    And lastly, the render of what I am expecting it to look like with wheels/coilovers.

    Thanks man. It's basically just a Mercedes SLK320 with a Chrysler body. Interior is a little more "racey" than it's Mercedes counterpart though. And yeah, this particular already has an intake and a tune which is good for right around 400hp at the crank. I'm planning on doing an exhaust within the next few months and then eventually do a smaller s/c pulley with a shorter belt, downpipes and a larger volume heat exchanger which should give the car 400+ hp at the wheels. Definitely the faster car I have ever owned.........lol.

    I gotcha. I'm still a little confused as to how the rear arches are since you said you can't really roll them. But, still looking forward to seeing it come together !

    I will take some pictures to reference what I am referring to when I get the car back and have the rear wheels off the car.

    Ok boys and girls, time to update this thread.

    The paint wasn't in the best condition even after having the paint correction done (it had clearcoat failure in a few spots and pretty heavy oxidation that couldn't be fixed) so I decided to mix things up a little bit and have the car dipped to hold me over. I'm not completely sold on the dip.......it looks crazy good rolling and in certain lighting it looks amazing........but it's by no means permanant. I am actually planning to have the car resprayed the original black color in August just in time for H20i. Wanting to get this thing looking like it did the day it rolled off the assembly line.....only much lower.

    I am going to be tweaking my coilovers a little bit next weekend (I wanted to do it this coming weekend but there is shows/meets all weekend so it'll have to wait) and the car should be coming down rougly another inch. Right now the coilovers are maxed out but I am still running my adjustment rings. Not locking rings.....these cars have funky suspension setups so you'd have to see them to understand what I am referring to....lol. I will almost certainly have to modify my fenders a bit more to achieve this given the fact that i'm not really running much of a stretch. I am also going to be adding a 5mm spacer to the rear to get my rear to sit a little bit more aggressively. Lastly also having custom front/side splitters made next month.......so after I lower the car a smidge more combined with the front/side splitters I should be back to street sweeper status in no time.

    Don't believe just watch
