That's what I was thinking, although some claim they have went on interstates road trip w/ their car and its fine. But I personally wouldn't risk it

502 Checking In

Rescued # 502 last Friday. Driving through the lot checking to see if any 2017's were available yet when I saw this. Had to have it. Took three weeks to get to a price I was comfortable with. Car was in terrible shape for being new. The dealer was a total pain to work with. Glad I stuck with it and got the deal done. They have one automatic 2.0 still there.

Dropped it off at Detail Werkz Dallas to get all the crud off the paint. They got it looking like a real new car.

....Replacing Photosucket images......

Well,,,, 480 miles and the axle seal is leaking. I thought the car smelled a little weird.

Maybe I'll have it back by Tuesday......

#600 (6MT) reporting . Got it a few months ago and couldn't be happier. Not planning on any major mods, just full exhaust, tune, and tires.

Ive wrapped the interior silver pieces gloss black and the roof, as well as gotten a flossy black griptape knob. Wanting to maybe get an aftermarket suede steering wheel this summer? anyone done this to our interior?

I read your mod post above. I have the same car. I didn't do as many mods as you but I do have TRD lowering springs installed. I had a dealership install them for me. I see your install is perfect, as in the front is sitting the same height as rear. The issue with mine is the front is sitting a little bit higher than the rear. It's not major but it's a little bit bothersome. Do you know what might've gone a bit wrong? Love your setup, btw.

Thanks, did you install camber bolts up front when you did the springs? I have camber bolts at the lower hole and moved the lower bolt to the top (it effectively is an OE crash bolt in this location) and got over 2 degrees of negative camber so that might make it appear to be lower up front. If you run OE camber that might be one reason it looks higher than mine in front.

The camber bolt/crash bolt installation is something you might do on your own, we did my son's car in 30 minutes or less the other night and most of that time was jacking the car up and removing the wheels. You would probably want an alignment after to make sure toe is good, but be sure to tell them not to touch the camber.

Thanks man. I did not get camber bolts. I'm running OE camber. Basically I got the springs, took the box to the dealership and they had it installed. I guess that might be something I will do in the future. I am car noob so I'm probably not going to do it myself.
