Fortune Auto coils are 5-weeks+ out. Just tried to get a set going with the ISC street 8K/6K with street valving and the dearing kit.

You know, they're all the same, built side by side in the same Taiwanese 'knockoff' factory (Bor Chuan). The big difference in those coilovers that you say are worth waiting for is the color of the paint....because the horrible valving that will **** up your car's handling is identical.

Have you ran any of the BC's or fortune auto's out of curiosity since you seem to know they will make the car handle worse.

I've heard good things from others running Fortune Auto coilovers. What were your experiences with them?

I'm looking for as much input from people who have driven on them as possible before spending the cash.

Agreed Procede, I dont understand all the comments on the stuff no one has run. I would have 100% tried the Fortunes w/swift springs. But i can not wait, the engine is just about done. From what I read the ISC's get good reviews. And yes i know all about the tiawnese knockoffs I am there at least 4x's a year for work. That said, i heard these are good and my tuner is installing and doing the alignment. We will see, handle worse i doubt it.

Me and my co-driver were definitely looking at your RS. Nothing like a caged out, unicorn Green, GC RS parked in front of you. Very nice car.

This is a little random. I encountered some crazy fog tonight here in the Springs. For the longest time I haven't been able to get my fogs to come on but during the middle of this thicket, I swear I could see the reflection from the foglights when I flicked them on.

I'm pretty sure these cars don't just decide to be safe in the middle of inclement weather....right?

...if your fogs aren't working, take it to the dealer and tell them to fix it.

And what do you mean you swear, why don't you just turn them on and get out and look?

Was that post a joke, were you making fun of someone? I apologies if I missed the sarcasm or something. Maybe I'm turning into the dick I always hatted other people for.

I liked the certain qualities of the stock WRX wheels (many spokes, flat face, spokes go all the way to edge) but disliked the fact that they were only 17s (and also the fact that all the spokes were not evenly spaced- why the hell did they put a larger gap between every 3rd spoke?) and sought out to find a wheel that addressed these faults... Other than the Rota Gravels and the OZ Superturismos which I ended up choosing, there really wasn't a whole lot of (reasonably priced) wheels out there that fit what I was looking for, so I can't say I agree with your statement that there are lots of wheels out there similar to the stock ones.
