“Bad Karma”

Post by Chris_Currin » Thu May 16, 2019 1:46 am

This is my daily driver, which I’m calling “Bad Karma”. She’s a 2011 9C3 that was previously owned by a very active forum member. Since it has been in my possession (Oct ‘18), I lowered it on H&R springs, installed a VCM OTR intake, had the car tinted, mirrors and handles painted, paint correction and ceramic coating. Then I took it to Rewired LLC in Denver, NC where I had the 3.27 diff and Camaro brakes installed (thanks James). This year I’ve added a Aussie steering wheel, lower chrome moldings, and a roof spoiler. I also put the car on CTSV wheels and Hankook tires. Currently I’m working on improving the car audio. Eventually I want to do cam and DOD delete... exhaust, 6 spd manual, and maybe an LSA... but those are longer term goals that I’ll have to do over time. Hope y’all like it as much as I do.

Nice. The rear window spoiler along with the deck lid spoiler go together nicely.

10000% agreed. When lowered, coupled with how long the car is, can't quite place what it is, but the window spoiler and deck spoiler just look right at home.

Thanks for the kind replies! I really love this car (first RWD V8 I’ve owned). I love the long dash to front axle proportions, the fender flares, and the up-swept lines accentuated by the lower chrome.

Chris, I saw your car at ‘our’ work parking lot, technically I work over at the other building, but I was dropping someone off. I have a Holden badged ‘17 SS M6 which I occasionally drive to work.

I drove past your car and knew I had seen it somewhere online at some point admiring the Caprices. I love your car it is awesome, pretty much the a very similar setup to what I would do if I had a Caprice.
