That's the plan. I'm going to keep the entire setup in the trunk next to the spare tire. No lines or anything showing. The tank will be mounted on the parcel shelf so I still have full use of the trunk.

*A wild Miller7204 appears*

Interested to see where this goes as I'm looking into air kits right now as well.

Haven't seen you post in a long time miller! Install should be happening within the next few weeks. Just need to pick up a few fittings, line, etc. Bags are just so much more functional for daily driving.

Went to waterfest 22. It was a good show. Lots of vendors and free stuff. Gorgeous cars also. Too bad it rained on saturday, kind of dampened the mood. Afterfest kinda sucked too. Overall a good show.
One of my favorite cars there

The car is bagged. Still dialing in The dampening but enjoying it. Running idf drop plates in the rear for the low and the tilty. I'm gunna try adjusting camber this weekend for the front.






I'll need to add a picture of the trunk setup. Everything is hidden next to the spare tire minus the tank which hangs from the parcel shelf.

Special thanks to rand0mher0

Just a picture of the trunk set up. Manifold and lines along with dual 444c compressors in the spare tire compartment. Still have full use of the spare. Tank is mounted to the parcel shelf.

I'd want something similar to that, but I don't want an exposed tank. A buddy of mine gave me the idea of either using a small tank in the cubby on the left or hiding it somewhere like along the front bumper. I'd be afraid of front end collisions damaging the system then though.

And what's your fill time with the dual compressors? I've heard it's a little unneccessary, but I kind of like the idea of having less fill time and a backup compressor.

I don't think there would be room in the front bumper. And like you said, even a minor fender bender and you might lose use of your suspension.
Also the dual 444s fill up very quick. Enough for rand0mher0 to want to ditch his for dual 444s lol. I belueve hes running 380s. They have the full rates on the viair website. But between, 380, 444, and 400s, 444 is the way to go for sure. extremely quick fill up time, the compressors don't have to work as hard. the main reason why I went with 2 is because if one goes, I'll have the other still working. It makes for a much more reliable setup. Also, check ebay before you buy from bagriders or viair. They have the viair compressors for much cheaper from good sellers.

Thanks pssst.

Wintermode! Bbs rcs with blizzaks.

Also picked up another bmp gli for a decent price. The previous owner hit a deer. I plan on taking the parts I need and parting the rest. Let me know if you guys need anything! I will ship smaller items.
