Out of those options.. and given your current mods.. and target budget

I'd say a quality Coilover with a good range of adjustment


I just PM'ed a friend with better knowledge than I ... most lightly will chime in soon to drop is 2 cents

Ty sir!

So you think a coilover with stock suspension will do the trick?

Will this whole meaty tire adventure end up sacrificing handling/performance? A few people have told me to just stick with stock tire size, saying that the car was designed for that tire size and to not mess with it. Don;t want it to just look purdy

It seems as thought there is no real way to go about this without sacrificing performance, which only further confuses me, as pretty much every setup seems to be running 255 and over tire widths.

Glorious morning so far!

SMY stuff arrived this morning, specifically the DAMD d-shaped steering wheel and the Push start/keyless entry kit.




Pleasantly surprised with the smallness of the remote start/keyless entry card. Seemed bigger in the photos. Its really small



Also happy with the DAMD wheel, didn't think there were finger grooves on the back. There are! Even has that new car smell!

Still have more research to do, but stumbled across this, which has made me rethink my whole suspension upgrades/budget this spring.
If this can stand the test of time vs Montreal winters, and deliver performance wise/improve suspension, I just don't know if I can resist. The adjustable control is too sweet to be ignored. I wonder how it compares to coilovers; if this is not reliable or sacrifices performance I will pretend I never saw it. Definitely more reading to do on the subject. If anyone has any opinion on this don't be shy:

i am very curious about this too. The adjustability would definitely make this very ideal for our winters, as I do a lot of winter driving and would love to lift the car for winter months, and then lower it nicely when heading to meets or for the odd track day setting it up for max performance. Curious how well it would perform compared to decent set of coils.

Nice.

If the kit had more than a 1 year manufacturers warranty I make that guy an offer.

If my research proves that the kit is the real deal, would rather buy it new and not take any chances, dude lives too far away for me to chase him down if something is busted.
