First impressions coming from stock: Steering is going to take some getting used to because now it feels super responsive in the corners, coilovers behave almost too well on city streets and feel about 90% similar to stock despite having a spring rate of 8K front and back, it's comforting to have decent tread on the rear tires again.
Looks great. Got anymore pictures?

Not on the newer BRZ's. They snap in with a hundred plastic tabs.

From there use 400 grit sand paper and sand and touch up until the chips are filled and everything is smooth. Then use a artist air brush to spay the clear over where you sanded. After the clear has cured you polish it back out and reapply wax.

Just several more. Had to chase daylight by the time I got back home.


edit: Just realized that one of my license plate lights are out. I swear all the old bulbs on this thing are slowly blowing out one by one.

Sick looks simple and clean. Nothing like a good 10 spoke wheel. What made you go with the Revel coils? Love the stickers too lol

Finally decided to throw some quick, easy mods on to change the car up. Went for headers, over pipe, cutback, rear lower control arms, camber bolts front and back, coilovers, ecutek tune, rays wheels, front lip, and rear diffuser.

Indeed. I was pretty set on the gramlights 57dr for a while and before that gunmetal RPF1's but then I realized how common they are lol. When I was putting the tires on the guy at the shop was saying that most of the wheels they work with were usually one or the other


Went with the Revels because I got a good deal for them, $925 shipped brand new and it even comes with endlinks. Friend also runs them on his civic si and has good things to say about the coilovers. Was thinking of the Tein Flex A too but the deal on the Tanabe was just really good.

Honestly the Flex A's are a better deal. They perform well for their price and have hydraulic bump stops which is very nice on a car that has limited travel like ours. Especially when lowered.

How much does the hydraulic bump stop actually do in daily and spirited driving compared to your ordinary coilover? So far these have been treating me pretty nice on the streets of LA, except for roads that feel like garbage even on a stock setup.

Quite of bit as the car is into the stops a lot.

If you are happy with your setup be happy with them. I'm just pointing out less money doesn't equal better deal. I've ridden in a lot of twins with a lot of different setups and on my my second set of aftermarket coilovers myself. The FLA's are pretty nice for the money.

Both are great wheels, but yeah pretty common. Same with the WedsSports.

You can get the Flex Aís for $912 with free shipping from Evasive which isnít too bad of a deal. Revels donít sound bad though. As long as youíre happy with it

Drove it a bit. Went to take care of a couple errands and took the long way. Really nice Sunday drive with no traffic. Came up on another white BRZ with an exhaust and an aggressive backfire tune. Got up next to him and gave him a 🤙 and he just took off lol

Honestly, embarrassed to drive it with the fucked up bumper. Eager to get that fixed this week.

Every day feels like a Sunday drive with this whole Covid-19 thing going on . At least in CA, don't know what's happening in Texas.
