Did you install the strut brace, or did the shop? If you did it, how hard was it to fit the piece in the area under that cowling by the firewall?

Thanks. Got the kit from Harold at HPA a few weeks ago. Don't remember the exact price but it's on his site. I felt the difference immediately and by adding longer adjustable front sway end links my front bar is sitting exactly where it should be now.

Good question. The shop installed it and knowing about this beforehand, I asked the technician and he said it was tough to get under it. Since I had the camber plates I preferred they do it but in the end I was annoyed with the camber plates issue. (not sitting right)

The M3 strut brace kit isn't really a tough DIY at all.

Thanks. The LSD is already installed. Waiting patiently on the Ohlins as a result of the Vorshlags are on back order. They should ship any day...
Oh and I forgot the Kleeman tune! That's installed already with the Wagner IC.

Wow! I have only -1.8 and am worrying about tire wear.

Lol...-2.5 is not as crazy as some other guys I know.

I put the camber plates on so might as well take advantage of them.

Hey John, who did your alignment? I'm curious to know which shops in the GTA can handle and are willing to do an alignment on a car with adjustable camber plates.
