First mods installed today.

I mean, I have a PIE adapter and a MGW pony insert for my lighter cover, but today I put on the FRPP mufflers and Eibach Pro Kit.

what a beast! the new grumble is awesome, and the lowered stance is great. my JLT/XCal2 from bamachips should be here anyday now, so I will have a real performance mod soon.

no i had midas install them for me. i talked to a couple of local speed shops but they dicked me around on what they could do, the price, etc.

i finally just said screw it and went to midas so i could get at least some kind of guarantee on the install.

Does the car handle noticeably better with the new springs or is it mainly just for looks? I would think it would be a bit better with the lower center of gravity and such, but then again springs alone might not do much.
