Ordered the black one, got it installed today :D

First impressions? Car handles very well and sharper response in turns. Roads are still wet and traffic so didn't go too fast in turns to try but feels good, I can definitely notice the difference. Driving on the freeway, the car feels more composed and back end feels more plant, feels tighter overall.

Ride quality is pretty much the same for the most part. I do notice on rough or uneven roads the car is stiffer and rides a bit rougher over those roads. Nothing too bad but I can notice the difference over those bumps. For now I'll leave the car as is and don't plan on lowering it, don't want to make it any more rougher.

I'll drive more when it stops raining :punk:

do you plan on installing the JBR swaybar brackets?
JBR Tru-Torsion 1.25? Billet Sway Bar Bushing Brackets [Tru-Torsion-125] - $80.00 : James Barone Racing, Custom Fabrication
I would definitely recommend these because on my previous car the swaybar brackets snapped a few times after fitting them with thicker sways.
Yeah I was looking into those too, I'll upgrade them in the future but not right now.
just drive it hard till the brackets first break...haha =)
if they don't break, that means u're not corning hard enough!
