Just got my Artisan side rockers painted/installed + rear diffuser. Compressors in the front were super loud so I got the frunk sound dampened which helps a lot. Last min pickup with the CF steering wheel. The feel and grip is really nice!

This is one of those "car culture" things that makes me feel old, because I simply dont understand it at all. Definitely a "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder" type thing.

This 'trend' has been around a while and I never got it either. I never got the sagging your pants below your butt either though...which is all a car lowered like this reminds me of.

It’s called air suspension. I can raise and lower my car with my controller or my app.

At least on my end, I know you can drive it (I knew about the air suspension part of it). I also understand fully modifying a car for looks that appeal to you. I get all that. I am a firm believer in "if it looks good to you, go for it", so I am not passing judgement at all. I am just saying that this is one of those things I "dont get".

The cool thing though is, we dont have to "get" it, only you do, and since you do, I am assuming it looks the way it is supposed to. I will admit that part of what I dont get is the wheels being recessed inside the wheel wells (for example). I totally get (and like) reduction of fender gaps, as long as it doesnt lead to rubbing. The model 3 specifically has a pretty large amount of fender gap. I just havent bought anything to deal with it yet, and not sure I am going to, since its "ok" on my model 3P with 20s, (but the thin rubber is another story.. but I digress)

Anyway, congratulations on getting it setup like you want. Personalizing a car is exciting!

20” Work VS-XX Polished Black Step Lip

This is going to to look awesome, I can just see it!! I don't think I've seen a Model 3 on VS-XXs yet let alone bagged and VS-XX. I see the Artisan Spirits kit too, you got good taste my friend. 90% of the people are stuck in their own little heads replying to this thread hahaha
