Thanks! I actually got the two together last year when visiting relatives in Japan. Was used from upgarage but only cost about $300 and another $100 to ship back home.

BC Racing DS Series Coilovers

Yeah I can't wait to share my experience. Unfortunately i'm choosing to switch spring rates based on advice from Tailored Chassis Solutions owner Seamus, who has what I believe to be the fastest road race fit in... the world? So it'll be like April before I have a review... cheers!

I'm glad I'm old and cheap.

When I was younger, I spent a fortune - which was a totally different amount in the 1960s - making cars go faster and handle better. Now, I want them to be reliable, comfortable, convenient, and get good mileage.

Thank you for this, been looking to swap the grille on my girlfriends 2018 for a J's or Seeker grille but wasn't sure if it would fit correctly.

2 cans of Rustoleum. It applies nicely Iíve used it on other cars before too. Not sure how much sound dampening it does to be honest unless you layer it up.

I did 6 coats per side of asphalt and it made zero difference for road noise. By then I'd already sound deadened the dash/firewall area.

Very nice! I put sound deadening material all through my 2015, and it made a significant difference. It required lots of disassembly - and time.

I noticed those three switch blanks to the left of your steering wheel. I put three lighted switches in there.

One controls the color-changing LEDs under the seats and the dash, and the other two control three 12v outlets I added. Two are up front, and one is in the rear.

Im not sure if the Japanese grilles will fit on a USDM bumper though. I know headlight shapes are the same but you'll probably end up having to trim the bumper like I did. In my case, the grille protruded too much and the bumper did not have recession to accommodate, leaving a lot of gap by the headlights. I centered it as much as possible, measuring both sides the distance from the inner edge of headlight to bumper, then outlined the grille shape using a sharpie, cutting, filing and repeated 3 to 4 times until everything fit flush.

there was a member on the tfc pages that had a mis matching grille. I think he and the above post is enough proof, jdm grilles do not fit w/o modification

Just to clarify, the grille I used is off of a USDM 18+ Fit, but even that requires trimming.
