Loving the white/black theme here!! What did you put on the lip? Is it the underspoiler with the DIY add on?

And what type of fairing on your rack?? Inno??

Nice, ok cool. Once I get the car back from the shop I'm going to buy that fairing. But I had almost the same issue with the debadge of the back of my hatch, ended up having to use a clay bar and some liquid wax to remove it on the body..

Then you'll probably need coils, or plan to swap springs every fall and spring.

you dont need to raise it up for winter. you just dont stop in deep snow and you run snow tires. snow moves out of the way when you plow through it.

I said nothing about what they are worth. Clearly you are very happy with them and that's great. It's your car, do what you want. What I said was that other than getting low, there was no NEED for a street car to have coils. The odds that you can push your car far enough to need the advantage that coils provide during normal daily driving, or even not-so-legal street driving are very small. For daily street driving there is no real advantage to a coil over a good spring/strut combo.

Quote:
aftermarket coilovers>just lowering springs/oem struts any day.
Disagree. There are plenty of craptastic coilovers out there that are of much lower quality than you get with OEM parts, so that's just wrong. I suggested an 09 WRX strut, which is an upgrade from the 08 2.5i strut, isn't too expensive, and which many people run with aftermarket springs (not just "lowering" springs, but a performance spring) just fine.

Quote:
springs you get minimal ride height drop at best. and possibly a blown strut.
If you want "low" then that's fine. I want the right performance for my needs, and I want something that makes $$ sense as well as performance sense. My car will never see a track, will never be "hella"-anything, and doesn't need to scrape the ground. Function AND form, with a heavy preference for function. Not buying expensive and unnecessary parts lets me spend my money where it makes more of a difference.

Quote:
DO IT RIGHT.
Maybe say "Do it well" instead.

Quote:
with coilovers you receive (depending on coilover)

-32 way damper adjustment
-vast choices in ride height and camber adjustment

overall if you are going to do it, go coilovers.
Which the majority of people with coils never, ever use. If they touch them at all, most people raise it in the fall, and lower it in the spring. They use the adjustability for lowering the car, not for performance purposes.

It's cool that you are happy with your coils, but people don't need them for street performance and I'm not going to recommend that someone dive right into buying expensive parts when they may not need them.

i apologize i probably came off strong. your point is understandable. but i have yet to hear a long term success story with wrx struts/lowering springs that hasnt resulted in someone either blowing a strut or upgrading to coilovers. but i understand your point. to each his own??

As for everyone else, quit bitchin and post more pics! I'll post some over the weekend as I'm going on a snowboard trip in the Gettysburg, PA area. Will have my inno fairing installed and stickered up :-)

This whole thread has been ruined by you 08+ 2.5i guys. This used to be a place to get USEFUL information. Now it's "bro my car is low as **** brah and it's the best on this forum because it's tucking like a bau5." I may as well unsubscribe from this thread because it's full of false information... Like the rest of this forum. How can you people be so blind?
