Anyone know if the ride quality is noticeably different with 24mm front/22mm rear adjustable sway bars in comparison to 22mm front/20mm rear adjustable sway bars (assuming otherwise stock 2011 WRX suspension)? I want flatter cornering but don't really want to sacrifice the smooth ride that the WRX has. This is purely for spirited street driving, no track.

has anyone hardwired a radar detector in an '11 sti sedan? I have the homelink mirror and took my valentine1 in to get installed today and there was nowhere they could put it due to how low the mirror sits, slope/curve of the windshield, and lack of mounting options. where is everyone mounting theirs or am I better off just sticking with the cigarette lighter adapter and suction cup mount and only using it on long highway trips?

I have an Escort Passport and have it velcro'd to the dash. Center section, left side so the cord has a nice slot to rest in. Make sure to use velcro that doesn't state "do not use on dash". I remove when parking the car

I've heard the rears alone make a HUGE improvement for getting rid of the understeer and makes things more predictable and balanced. The fronts aren't really necessary.

I'm curious to know which 2011 WRX/STI has the highest mileage so far. I think I'm at about 11,750 miles or so. I'll edit later with actual mileage.

Ah you lame. Next!

Cel, when'd you pick up your car? Maybe I should be asking the guys that picked their's up back in August like me. Of course I drive around a lot, but didn't for the month my car was getting repaired this winter, so who knows what comparison miles are out there for similar time frames.

Just hit 5k; and with that nameless axle back, I'm about to buy one but i don't want to void my warranty (knock on wood nothing happens) but you think if anything does go wrong and I just bolt back on the stock axle back I won't have any problems?

an axle back will have no affect on your warranty. Enjoy your Nameless, I certainly enjoy mine

Have any of you guys ordered taillight overlays from BlueBat before? I've PM'd him as well as sent him emails and have never gotten a response back. It's been a week so I'm looking for other taillight overlay alternatives.

Sorry bro, looks like things have changed with him. I know of people on here that have recently bought from him. I guess just be patient.
