|With the arrival of the Yokohama tires, the BBS RE wheels finally went on the car.
We expected having to roll the front fenders in order to fit 18x9.5 +24 wheels with 275/35/18 tires, but that was unnecessary, even after the car was slightly lowered with the KW Coilovers. |
Impressions: The steering response is incredibly quicker than before and the car feels significantly more stable overall.
The KW Variant 3 Suspension Coilovers followed -
We chose the middle height settings for both front and rear and kept compression/rebound at the preset level for the time-being.
Impressions: The difference is superb. Whereas the car was previously a tail-happy monster, it now feels well-grounded, comfortably hugging the road. Surprisingly, the ride comfort has not decreased. A test drive on new wheels/tires before the coilover swap definately demonstrated more road noise and sensitivity, but the coilovers do not seem to have an effect.
.. and Greddy Boost and Wideband O2 (A/F) gauges were installed -
The placement of the gagues is temporary as we await the arrival of our brackets and the Greddy EGT (Exhaust Gas Temperature) gauge.
