Best Mod for the XI is...

I took my car to the track this past weekend. WOW. The car is transformed. I installed AST 4100's about 2 months ago. I normally use the second softest setting for DD and they are perfect. Reduce body roll, better performance but still a great comfy feel. (FYI running 400/800).

At the track, I upped them to 6 out of 12 settings, both front and rear. In the future, I may play with this further, but I went with that setting based upon AST's suggestions. WOW. My car had virtually no roll in hard cornering. The grip was stellar. The feel, even better. Turn in was crisp, track out controlled. I didn't even slam my camber plates (again, next time I will add more camber), but even without it was superior. I really can't wait to get out again and tweak this setup. Needless to say, by far the best mod $$ can buy!

No don't go stiffer that isn't the issue. You just need the m3 rear and bushings. If you start off too stiff it will only get firmer with the other suspension mods.
