Sooooo....

Let's say, hypothetically, someone had new springs installed without having the car hooked up to VIDA for a SUM recalc afterward.

1) Would you know simply by driving the car?
2) What would/could happen long term?
3) Can you have the recalc done at any time afterward?

All hypothetically, of course.

So, that long post you had a couple of weeks ago about going to RawBear was hypothetical?


I think you need to do the recalibration at least for the headlights. Also, you may run out of measured "travel" in the 4C sensors as the resting point of the suspension is now different. At least, this is the way I understand it. I'm sure someone will correct / clarify.

Nope, nothing hypothetical about having the springs installed (they're still awesome, btw).

Re: SUM recalc & New Springs Question.... (Sue Esponte)

JRL's response pretty well sums it up. (pun not intended)

I went over 5 months and ~3000 miles before I recalibrated my SUM with the TME springs.
The rear is now a little bit more settled and makes fewer "dead body" thunks.
You will probably notice a difference as well, since you drive it day in, day out. To a
driver that is not familiar with the car (i.e. not a lot of seat time), I doubt they'll notice any
difference.

Hope that helps,
