Nice. That's my dealership I go to all the time :-) (Live close by)

Who is the SA that looks after Dinan now? The guy I knew left sometime last year (that was involved with taking care of Dinan products).

They are good with customers that like mods. Gregory or something like that? Yeah, he's gone. I'm dealing with Ted and Brent directly now.

Just got my car back! It took them a good day and a half to install the kit, which came with adjustable dampers, springs, roll bar, dump stops, camber plates, etc.. They also did an alignment on the car according to Dinan specs.

A little bit on the installation:
- professionally done, explained everything and gave me all the paperwork
- factory parts were packaged up nicely and put in the trunk

Quick review:
- I haven't taken the car to the track yet, so I can't provide a full review
- but I did run a on ramp at a decent speed, did quick lane changes and large breaking
- SIGNIFICANTLY LESS body roll, nose of the car barely dives under hard braking
- car sits slightly, lower; dinan says half an inch, I think less than that; that said, its barely noticable (if you are looking to slam your car, this kit not for you, not even close)
- suspension is stiff but controlled, there are a couple of spots on the Gardiner where you get a bit of air going over large but gradual bumps, with the stock suspension, car takes a few bounds and rebounds to settle down (2x I believe); now, 1x and the car is settled again

Looking at the suspension front and back, a lot of factory parts were replaced (clean versus dirty), but fits perfectly well. I will give more feedback once I have taken the car to the track.
