Man, those pictures have me really fiending to get my S60 ordered. Are you running an M6 or A4 in your car? If you have an M6, what's the specs on the driveshaft? It'd be nice to know the dimensions in advance so I don't have to wait to get my car back on the road.

You have a part number for that rear cover? I was told by strange that the only cover available was the chrome cover, I didn't realize that Lpw had a website that the cover could be ordered through.

there was a lpw brochure in the box when i got the rearend and i called them up and asked if their rearend cover would work, so they called strange and called me back and told me it would. its their low profile cover 201-60 is the part number

Sweet thanks! Yeah when I ordered mine strange told me they had issues with there support covers hitting the gas tank so they said the only one I could get was the chrome cover.

I just got my S60, they told me the same thing so mine has a chrome rear cover. I may just order one of those LPW covers...

Oh and I got almost the same thing from midwest chassis as the OP, S60, driveshaft, torque arm and all. Very nice stuff :thumb:

the black Strange cover clears the gas tank. almost like the LPW. better than the chrome. IMO

the lpw nailed my panhard bar, so I had to cut the adjuster studs flush with the bolts to get it to clear......

I have the alum cover, with fill, from strange and it fits fine. I dont think a s60 need any more cap support, its a pretty beefy case?

Same here.

To the OP. Looks great and I just got mine installed this past weekend with some friends. Can't wait for it to be broken in to beat on it.

I'll just leave mine with a standard cover and paint it black. Stealthy and hey, it's still a ten bolt, right? lol.

Well she's in, everything went well, had not problems with anything and the lpw cover cleared everything to with no modifications.

Nice, S60 is a the way to go I think. 2 thumbs bro.

I have the black aluminum S60 cover on my TA and have had no problems with clearance what so ever. Friend of mine back home had no issues either, wierd that is the first I have heard of that.

I got so excited about this that I ordered mine and it's ready to be picked up Monday :D Once I get it in I can measure for a DS and I'll finally be able to put the power to the ground without being scared of breaking it.

Can you post up pics of how you have your duals run? Also, who put them in?
