The ride quality is awesome. Significant reduce in body roll, does great over city roads and is only slightly more stiff than stock. Overall a little more sporty feel, but nothing drastic.

I found that TireRack had the best price + shipping. You can find them from many places like ECS Tuning and others though.

P3Cars digital vent gauge installed. I chose the red/white lighting which turned out to be a perfect match with the gauge clusters. The fit and finish are pretty impressive. The gauge was a PITA to installed into the vent however. I'd recommend spending the extra coin and getting the entire assembly if I had to do it over.

I will take some day time pics and update the thread soon.

I also used my Micro-Can for the first time today to clear the bulb out error from my LED taillights install. For anyone trying to find out what to code byte 18 for to get rid of the errors, I used 1F and tested extensively. Works perfectly.

North American region, halogen headlights, led tails w/o fog = 1F (stock was 03)

Very nice! Gosh I have a weak spot for Neuspeed wheels.

Love the P3 gauge, it's really a useful tool.

Thanks man! All of the Neuspeed wheels just look like they were made for these cars. They almost seem as if they would be OEM on a higher trim level package.

I plan on using the P3Gauge to track power increases, temprature differences, etc with each mod. I know it wont be 100% accurate all the time, but it will be nice to use it to document baseline numbers and then track any improvements with each mod.

I completely agree about Neuspeed. They have some of the best fitting, looking and performing parts on the market.

I usually keep my gauge on intake temps, sometimes I'll check coolant on long drives. It's really a great 'gauge'. It's really accurate, straight from the ECU though I would recommend getting the analog boost sensor.
