I'm not very proficient in the ways of forums, but I'll see what I can do for some pictures Nothing done to it as of yet, but plans wise I think I have a good idea so far.
OEM fog lights, a lower(debating on prokit/sportline, or full coil-overs), wheels, intake, exhaust. And...that's really my only plans as of yet. It's going to cost a lot of money I don't have right now, but this is the first car I've ever owned that's worthy of having modifications done to it and I just can't wait!
This car is amazing compared to my old car lol. I plan to keep this thing a very long time. A question though, I've been navigating around and trying to research some things and I had a question. Been having a hard time finding the answer I've been really looking for. My lowering dilemma is between just getting lowering springs, or going with coil-overs. I have a buddy of mine with a built WRX pushing 300hp and he strongly suggests coil-overs, but I'm curious if it's even necessary...I don't plan on doing any auto-xing or racing, my mods will be purely for my enjoyment, so I'm trying to figure out if it's even necessary to spend the money on such a pricey upgrade. If I do end up going with just the springs though would it be better to go with the pro-kit or the sport-lines? I know the sport-lines provide a more aggressive drop but what sacrifices and possible future maintenance hardships will I have to worry about if I make the upgrade?
Sorry...I know it's a lot of questions, but I've never made a single modification to a car, though I've always wanted to start, and now that I have my 3 it's game on. it's no longer a matter of whether or not to mod the car, it's only a matter of when I'm going to.
**I suppose I shouldn't rule out the RoadMagnet springs either**
search around maybe not in the skyactiv forums but the other side they have alot in the suspension threads. depends how much you wanna spend. if u wont be racing coils arent that big a deal. everyone seems to be doing fine with springs and stock shocks. yes youll have more wear if u dont adjust the camber properly.
Something like that is probably where I'd end up needing someone's help, haha. I have zero basic car knowledge, so adjusting camber sounds like an alien technique to me. All I basically know about camber is how much the wheels tilt in and out towards the vehicle. What I think I'm picking up on however is that if you don't adjust it properly it can cause handling issues?
After searching around and reading up, I'm noticing that the alignment shop would take care of camber and that so far(as I can tell) no one is having any shocks/struts problems with any of the lowering spring kits. Gotta learn the search function wisely! lol
