    Cars looks great, the wheels work really well with the ride height!

    Did you do sway bars front and back? If you didnít do sways would you still have done links?

    Also are you able to control the valves on the Milltek? Love the finish on the tips!

    Yes, sways and endlinks front and back. On the S3 I did rear sways only, but endlinks front and rear. The s3 didn't need any turn-in help, just help with rotating.

    They operate just like oem (open with engine in dynamic, closed in auto/comfort), there is an add-on module you can get which allows you to open/close them at will with a double tap of the esp button, and control other things like having valves closed on cold start. I'm trying it out as-is first and might consider the valve control add-on.

    Thanks so much for posting this. Ive been on the fence about which adjustable spring set to get and you are helping me decide this. What i don't want is to degrade the stock dampers a a rapid pace by the car being too low nor take away any agility from it's handling. I guess the first question would be....did you raise the car up any or is it still at this ride height (the car looks amazing at this height for me)? Second....would you say the handling of the car has improved,declined, or stayed the same? Again, thanks for posting. Ive had my car for 2 weeks and am itching to get this thing lower. Cheers!

    I'm still loving the look, not rubbing or scraping, so I have no plans to raise it at this point. I have the rear all the way down and the front is about 3/4th the way down. Front:

    Ride quality is significantly decreased with these springs, at least at this ride height with a slight forward rake. The car now follows the road exactly, not masking imperfections, while being a little bouncy and stiff (by varying degrees depending on speed and damper settings). This setup does better at higher speeds (50mph+). These might be the more performance oriented option as the handling is much improved. It did great on a twisty highway road (CA-17 to santa cruz), stayed composed and kept the car flat while pushing it 7/10ths.

    I'm leaving my dealership plate + window sticker on for as long as possible, so I can still use the front plate delete without getting a parking ticket.

    nice! the only time I get front plate tickets is when I get pulled over for something else. suburbia ftw.

    He loves the new car, was excited to ride in it, and he says it's his favorite now. haha.

    When yours is ready for forward facing, its the RECARO Performance SPORT Combination Harness to Booster Car Seat, I don't think they make this exact one anymore so the leftover ones are insanely priced, its much better designed and higher quality than the Evenflo one I have in the b8 though.
