Most coilovers can be set at stock height. They don't come pre set from the factory like that but they are adjustable.

Those look great, and w/ LED bulbs I highly doubt that tint diminishes the output to an 'unsafe' level. It's not like you spray painted them black or something....

-wheels
-"shoot"
-maybe suspension work
-maybe slam on ground
-park at meets

to each their own though, right.. ; )
At least with the new platform I don't see a problem with a nice set of wheels and better rubber on the stock suspension. Quite a bit different than previous generations. I did 1. wheels/tires 2. exhaust/tune and probably won't touch the suspension. It's a pretty good balance of handling and comfort..rce bilsteins and yellows might change my mind though..I refuse to ever do coil overs on a street car again.

Not to mention that wider wheels woth stickier tires will do more to improve cornering than any amount of suspension work.

I went for the HTAuto Bottom Line kit.

At the time it was the cheapest way to get the front, sides and rear spats. I've been really impressed w/ how everything held up over the past year!

I have the HT auto front lip. Great product. Easy install. Just purchased my axle back. Does anyone else's hill assist annoy the **** outa them. It makes me almost stall once it finally releases. And I get a popping noise after it engages and I go to use the brakes after. I took it in and had them check everything, said everything looks nice n tight and normal.

I disabled hill-assist about 3 months into owning the car. Couldn't stand driving around w/ it.

If it bothers you like it did me, check the manual and you can disable it.

After an unfortunate flash flood here in Kansas City, my modded 05 bit the dust as a total loss. BUT, it lead me into my 2016!

Here it is in its (temporary) stock form:

My exact sentiments. I disabled it weeks ago. What an annoying feature.

I disabled it the day after i got it. Couldn't stand it and was actually either making me stall or a rough engage. It's in the manual.

I can see it (hill assist) being useful if you're stopped on a steep hill....but most of the time it would kick in on the smallest of inclines and screw me all up.

And to keep things on track..
