Is that the new version for the second gen, or did you order the version for the first gen?

Its the 2nd gen version. Ordered back in December, they're finally reaching US suppliers.

Oh man that's a long wait. But I'm excited for you! That's the catback I've been looking at. Maybe if I order one now it will arrive by the time my car does! haha

Oof, that's a month longer than I have to wait currently. I ordered the Spec L BT004 in mid March, my ETA as of now is about mid August.


I'm really excited to hear some sound clips, Sym!

Finally got around to installing my front and rear dashcam. For now, I'm using the 12V outlet for power but eventually, I'll hardwire it. Speaking of hard wiring, where is the best fusebox located for me to siphon off some power for the dashcam?

I just tucked the wire in between the trim and headliner, didn't have to take anything off.

On mobile. Hopefully that links work. Anyway that's what I'm using at the moment. The 15A is always on, and the 7.5 comes on with accessory if I'm not mistaken.

Only a couple of cold start vids for now - still need to record some interior/flyby clips.

First roadtrip! 400km round trip, averaged 7.9 l/100km (per both the trip computer and the gas pump at the end).

Next week is license plate relocation and camber bolts (assuming they ever arrive).

Finally installed my ss-1 kit and used my new hubstands for the first time, though I think I might raise it a bit once things settle. An inch of lowering doesn't sound like much, but it sure seems low now. Not looking forward to resetting pre-load on everything again.

These cars are pretty easy to swap suspension on, though whoever designed the sensor clip that goes into the top hole on the strut bracket up front needs to be fired. I spent WAY too much time getting that off the strut.

Im looking at finally buying some wheels coilovers. Not really sure what wheel specs since I dont want to roll the fenders. Any recommendations for coilovers on the 2022?

Depends on what size and type of tire you want to run, how you use your car, how much comfort you want, how much money do you want to spend, etc. There is tons of info on this forum to help you answer those questions. You'll be best off doing some searches though the forum so you can learn what would work best for YOU. As far as coilovers are concerned, what works on the 1st gen generally works on the 2nd gen.
