Yup, Ohlins. The stock suspension was in the trunk to both my and the salesman's suprise. If I had the means to swap the stock system I guess I could have sold them, but I don't have the means and can't be bothered to try.

For the right price some rabid suspension-phile would happily swap those out for you

Put my FMIC in today, and covered up a bunch of wiring with plastic channel. Turbo soon!

Traction control relocation, phase 1, using old game pad buttons (lol), in order to mount a cup holder on the transmission tunnel later. Hopefully will add some more controls and doll it up soon.

What part of "Traction control relocation .... in order to mount a cup holder on the transmission tunnel later" do you not understand?

So you stole your grandma's curtains for your shift boot?

I kid, I kid. I like your ingenuity. Not sure why you would want a cupholder there but it's your deal

Looool thanks man. And yeah, somewhat regretting the choice of fabric cover for the stripped center console.

The plan is to mount a cup holder in front of the fire extinguisher (where the traction control is in this pic) and relocate the traction control and the usb outlet, along with whatever else, to that carbon fiber plate. This is an old pic of the rest of the console:

If you went so far as to delete the console, why cover it?

The OEM mats do not cover the carpet under the gas pedal and it was beginning to wear. I thought about getting the OEM FR-S all weather mats but they are shaped the same. If interested in those the cheapest I found them was here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Scion-FR-S-...wAAMXQiNdReWR6

I have 3D MAXpider mats in my 2014 Escape and they have worn well. Ordered them for my FR-S from here, no tax, free shipping: https://www.ebay.com/itm/All-Weather...7CMake%3AScion

Perfect fit. Much better coverage than the OEM mats. The mats are black. The lighting makes them look slightly gray.

Took receipt of it from the Chassis-Masters alignment and suspension shop. Guy works on porsches but has a certain love for the twins. we talked on the phone

man talk about straight as an arrow. apparently he loaded the car up with my body weight first and then did the alignment. the car is just so simple to corner with.. and best part?

450 bucks!

cheap!
