Yesterday, my wife and I took a long scenic (and curvy) drive up a mountain and through a forest. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I think the highest point I reached was about 6500 ft. <p><br><A HREF="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2527/3783671658_018f683228_o.jpg" TARGET="_blank">Click here for bigger version</A><br><IMG SRC="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2527/3783671658_8436ef7a90.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br>The highlighted route above is about 80 miles long. We drove from La Canada Flintridge (A) to Cajon (C). <p>Point (B) is a ski resort (yeah, in the middle of SoCal).<p><br>The suspension mods, tires, and wheels performed well. The car felt very safe and confident. Very little body through all the S-curves and sharp turns.<p>No problem climbing in 3rd and 4th gear. Plenty of power around 3000rpm, so no need to rev it up for torque. No bogging or screaming engine. I guess about 40% of the drive was in 3rd gear. <p><br>It was a lot of fun... the Angeles Crest drive is very popular among LA-area car and motorcycle enthusiasts. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><A HREF="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157621803363483/" TARGET="_blank">Some pictures (and two short videos) here</A><p><br><IMG SRC="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3470/3783727334_7de26200bb_o.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2675/3782927797_9519d5d822_o.jpg" BORDER="0">

Yeah, I am going to drop the rear a bit more soon.<p>I've been looking for a good compromise of daily comfort, looks, and performance... and I think I can do with the rear 0.5"-0.7" lower.
