    I haven't noticed anything. I didn't relevel the headlights. Given that front and back have lowered pretty much the same it's only the height of the lights that's hanged and not the angle as such. I guess I could be pointing to a slightly shorter position on the road which if anything is going to be better for oncoming traffic.

    The change is pretty minor as I really haven't noticed anything. All my other sensors (ACC, lane departure, etc) still work OK.

    One of the things that I probably would recommend is getting a wheel alignment done afterwards to make sure you're not going to scrub out your tyres but other than that all the other systems seem to work fine.

    @MarshmallowFalcon thanks for your kind words. Itís only when I ran the car in the rally that all the mods starting to make sense.

    Under normal conditions you hit the speed limit pretty quickly and donít get to experience the full capability of the vehicle. I was still probably only at 80% as I definitely wasnít pushing the limits of traction in the corners. At the end of the day itís still my daily driver /family hauler and needed to drive home at the end of the day.

    Thanks yes I'm very happy with the brakes. Both looks and how well they pull the car up from speed.

    I hear that, prudence and restraint... 2 values rarely mixed in rally settings. Those added pix are spectacular.

    sent you a PM regarding some help on my first mod. If you’d like, I can post the inquiry here. I didn’t want to hi-jack your thread with my none sense though I’m sure many others could benefit from your knowledge.
