    Thanks, all. It's good to have something else to tinker with (and share), and with a different agenda - I want to keep this thing comfortable.

    I think we'll expedite the suspension setup:


    Will likely do suspension & wheels/tires at the same time. Both of which need to happen very soon. Stay tuned.

    In typical fashion, things have been very busy on my end. With the racing season coming to a close, we are busier than ever. To bring this thread up to speed, I've been able to make a few subtle changes to the car.

    • APEX EC-7's. 19x8.5 ET20 front, 19x9.5 ET22 rear.
    • MCS 1WNR dampers paired with Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs and Vorshlag camber plates.

    The linear rebound characteristic of the MCS 1WNR dampers allow for a very comfortable ride. There isn't a ton of low speed damping built into these, which is fantastic for the purpose of this car; I'd describe the ride to be controlled yet very pliable. I could easily move up in spring rate by several hundred pounds and maintain a very comfortable ride, but as this car never sees any spirited driving, the stock rates remain - favorable on the roads in the City of Atlanta .





    General preventative maintenance and minute spot detailing have really brought the car around. Soon I'll play with some wheel spacers to get the fitment on par, and of course, fix the terrible job one of the PO's did when attempting to roll the rear fenders.

    looks great! 19s look like 18s on those larger cars.

    The rear subframe bushings on the E9X series cars are quite soft and squishy. Since the car won't see much spirited driving, you could get away with just RSFB inserts instead of replacing bushings. The rear end will feel a lot more planted and confidence inspiring, especially during mid corner bumps at highway speeds. The inserts are cheap to buy and easy to install and do make a difference even in daily driving.
