I ran the Beatrush pitch stop on my STI. Barely noticeable difference in NVH.

I wouldn't avoid getting one because of it.

When I was looking into whether it was worth it to install or not, my understanding was that it's useless on a daily driver and you won't notice any benefits of an aftermarket pitch stop. Please educate me if I have it wrong.

Same. I have a torque solutions one and no difference really, our motors are more prone to side the side motion not front to back.

Hard to say given that info. What would the primary purpose be?

Hauling kids, groceries?

Do you need something awd or decent in snow?

Hobbies that require trunk room ?

Depends on what your specific needs are to accurately answer that question.

i would find a nissan maxima, decently equipped and they run for a long time or a honda accord 4-cyl with leather and nav. used to have the accord, loved it. good on gas and NEVER had issues.

you can also look for an acura TSX? except idk how cheap they are. basically go for something japanese is what i'm trying to get at here.

Yea I second Accord, little biased but also because I know those motors and longevity. The vq won't let you down either though, so it becomes a matter personal preferance.

It's for my father. He is also an attorney, travels about 40 miles each way to the office every day, travels to court, occasionally has a client in the car. He doesn't care about "prestige" or name, so doesn't have to be Acura, Infinity, Mercedes, etc. Needs to be a reliable car, Auto trans, good gas mileage on Regular gas.

Right now he's looking at a used Chevy Malibu, which I told him is the wrong choice. He is currently driving an older Benz that he bought from one of the partners for $3500 (great price) and its cost of maintenance are starting to get high with the mileage.

and you can get one with nice options because they had the same car for almost 8 years?

i'd say go for a maxima. its enough 'prestige' but its all so simple and easy to maintain. same with an accord. hell find an older avalon?

Yeah it's not really the motor movement I care about. It's mostly to fix the slop when shifting during long rips or braking downhill downshifts. If I'm going to miss a shift it's going to be in either of those situations and those are because of the ****ty pitch mount.

do you have a short throw and/or shifter bushings? mine had NO SLOP and didn't do motor mounts or pitch stop.

Yep. I have the Cobb double adjustable. I didn't do the shifter bushings (even though I have them) but I don't think they will really help the situation I'm describing.

What my car will look like with 18x9 +35 G-forces with 225/40. The ones I will (hopefully) be getting are hyper black and the tires are 235/40.

I will, eventually. It's a big pain in the ass because I have to support the transmission, drop the front cross member, etc. I attempted to do it on my old STI and the bolt was seized. Good luck getting anything on it that will loosen the bolt in those confines. It's not a good time.

Don't sweat it. Your insurance will go after his insurance company, and him for whatever they don't cover.

He doesn't get off scott-free under an "Oops, not enough insurance, sorry!" clause. His insurance will pay whatever the amount his coverage is for, and he will be responsible for the rest.

Call your insurance company. Stop worrying and fretting and driving yourself crazy over this. You pay them every month specifically to HANDLE SOMETHING LIKE THIS FOR YOU.

Also, suing someone is civil, not criminal. You can sue for whatever you want. I'm not advocating it, and I'm not implying you will win, but you could easily sue him for mental distress.

But call your insurance. Let them do what you pay them to do.

You're looking at it wrong.

Pick up a case of beer and I'll help. Then it's fun.

Someone to help + alcohol = fun.

Alone and sober = frustrating.
