That drop looks good mind telling mw how much you paid? From what other posted shipping is a couple hundred dollars which is why I have thought of ordering them yet. How is the ride quality? How stiffer / bouncy is the ride

New shoes are definately on the radar! Shipping on the springs was @ $100 so the whole deal was just under $400. I must say they are well worth it, the ride is firm (not harsh) and the handeling along with the STI sway is superb. More pics to follow.

Could you elaborate further on the driving characteristics with the drop? Is lean for the most part gone on quick tight turns? How do you find the ride height? Do you find you have to becareful with bumps and uneven roads?

Post your before and after alignment specs please =)

and MOAR PICS! :P

Had my tint installed today. I got the 3M Color Stable 35 on the rear (nothing on the front). Overall I'm pretty happy with it. I didn't want to go too dark as I think it makes it look cheap, especially on lighter colour vehicles, and I wanted to keep the visibility.

Note: it's much lighter in person. These photos were taken on a overcast day in the evening.

I got 35 as well. I think its the perfect level: not too dark to look cheesy, dark enough to do its job well.

How solidly does this bracket mount to the bumper? Is it only held in place with two screws, or four?

I don't like my current arrangement, with only the top two screw holes for the license plate securing the plate to the bumper. This leaves the bottom of the plate too vulnerable for my taste.



I'm wondering how this bracket would compare to the subarugenuineparts bracket:

Tint looks good, but I really like the gate being held on with the rubber bungee cord

Not directed toward jsteg, but something makes my eyes roll when I see tint so dark you cant even see a silouette (front windows/windshields under 20%). The people who go this route are mainly form/function which I generally disagree with.

Well, in person you actually can se a silhouette, albeit obviously a slight silhouette, you can still tell, and I have 15%. I don't see how darker tint is not functional. To me, it's more functional than lighter tint.
