2012 R-Design Ice White
Bliss, Premium Sound, Nav

I had Eibach springs and H&R 15mm rear spacers installed before delivery.

I'll post more/better pics as soon as I'm "allowed" to post attachments. Unless someone can help me out.

Nice, and welcome to the family ;)

I have 42,500+ on my 12 now and it's still a beast. Got 37k out of my stock Continentals and new brakes on Volvo at 41k all the way around. Very good deal on the car to begin with.

Did you get 5/60k or 5/50k safe and secure these days?

Yeah, it's a carbon wrap on the roof. I think it really sets it off nicely.
Anyone try the IPD rear sway bar yet? Just wondering if it's worth it.

The dealer installed the springs and spacers?

I think we were all very interested to see what it looked and handled like so it wasn't a problem. The Eibachs do an ok job of lowering it. They'll have to do until either Polestar or K-Pax Racing come up with something different or lower!

Looks good, didn't take away enough wheel gap for me though.

Hows the ride?
Ride is very close to stock. I agree about not being low enough. These will have to do until someone else comes up with a set of springs. I'm hoping the K-Pax springs will be a touch lower. Not sure if Polestar is working on springs.
