I love it, the quality is great and the sound is exactly what i wanted, not too loud. I got the resonator and mini muffler option.

haha, i have some wider wheels and tires coming pretty soon, so i figured i would dial the suspension in after haha, it has a drag stance at the moment, surprisingly it handles well in the canyons:D

edit: ive actually lowered the rear to be a little more level since these pictures

When the plastic one goes, I'll be opting out for this one.

How much did it run you with shipping?

i didnt get a chance to lower the rear anymore, i'll have to take some better pictures once i do.

i can also confirm if your only swapping the driver side recaro you will not get any lights or warnings on the the dash, i did it this morning and it took maybe 15 min

Are those GSR wheels? Also how stiff are those coilovers compare to stock suspension. Can you adjust coils to be softer than stock?

Lol missed the part that says you have GSR wheels.

they are stiff, i had custom valving and spring rates though, the normal valving and spring rates should be pretty comfortable. If you want a smoother ride than stock i wouldn't recommend coilovers. i would say find a good set of eibach springs or w/e brand you prefer and stick with that.:)

Btw, love the color of GSR wheels looks great! What color is that?

NicksRRra
07-17-2013, 03:51 PM
Custom valving and spring rates? Can you you explain?

i chose a different set of springs when i ordered my coilovers, the springs i chose were stiffer than what would normally come on my coilovers. Since the springs are stiffer they need to change the valving in the shock in order to compensate for the difference in the springs. If you decide to go with coilovers you should read up on what other people have experienced with different setups ( spring rate, shock valving, ride height, etc.)

i had them powdercoated, the color is oil brushed bronze or something like that.
