The yellows are stiffer? Thought they were the same as oranges except you can adjust how stiff it is.

You car would perform better with the oem springs if youre keeping the oem suspension. It's only a matter of time before the oem suspension blows on those lowering springs.

yellows are much stiffer and adjustable dampening.

On the softest setting they are supposed to be similar to oranges but I had them around 75% stiffness

I have the Koni oranges on. I guess I did word that weirdly.

Hey,

Curious if anyone could comment who has had personal experience with Alphards 18x8.5 (et35) and 9.5 (et40) on a Mk6 w/ Bags.

Currently Im running ESR SR02s at 18x8.5 (et30) and 9.5 (et35) and am on coils. I rub in the rear here or there but nothing major.

Switching over to bags -- airlift slam series v2 and am considering Alphards for my setup. Any recommendations would be helpful. Im considering 215/40s all around.

Thanks in advance.

AWE requires you to butch up your OEM hose
42DD is nice, BUT because the nipple faces down the oil/blowby gets in the line (gravity) and clogs it up eventually. In the winter it freezes up too, because of that, mind you.

The New South just plugs right in, replacing the OEM hose, and the barb/tap is on the top of the hose with less blowby getting into the boost hose. It also has the "restrictor" built into the tap as well.

They're the better choice

Ah, I already have the 42dd on order and it shipped this morning. I bookmarked the new south tap though, if I have any problems I'll try that one. Thanks.

I desire slotted rotors. Im planning to upgrade my pads to stoptech performance pads, and better fluid. I was thinking ECS cryo but those are a bit pricey.

What brand and where is cheapest for reliable slotted rotors?
