Nice to see that this car has potential, especially with nice rims and a drop.

AWESOME!!!

It looks like you only got the front spoiler?! Do you plan on getting side skirts and rear?

Oh and did you put onthe recommended suspension limiters (bump stops) for those helios?

Thanks!

Thank you

I only have the front spoiler, but the plan is to mount GTI sideskirts and modify the rear for the dual gti exhaust with one pipe on each side.
I don't really like the look of votex rear spoiler because it's glued on the outside of the stock bumper. Maybe i'll just go for the gti rear, time will show

I have DCC for 18" wheels so there is now problem with bump stops, the wheels never rub The bumb stops that came with the Eibach suspension was identical with the ones on the car.

How much did it cost? Where did you get it from? What is the sound like?

P.S. Car looks hot!

will do
It i calculate from NOK(Norwegian Kroner) to USD it would be around 1000$ for everything.
The sound is werry good, but proberbly would be better if i upgraded the door speakers.


The list:
2channel Audison LRx 1.400 (900w mono)


2x FOCAL 27V1


Helix AAC high/low adapter (need this to get phono-signals and remote-signal from the RNS-510)


Custom made closed subwoofer enclosure with a cover plate that covers the gap on each side

DCC

How do you find the DCC active damping? What setting do you use most? Do you think the changed springs effect that?.

How i find it? It's an option when you order the car
There is a button on the center console where you can choose normal/sport/comfort.
I usually drive on Normal, but when I drive active I like the sport setting
When I installed the Eibach springs, all the settings got a little "harder" but still there is a big difference between the 3 programs.

DCC/ACC in EU

Thanks, I am also certain to order it, I am hoping in Sport it will mean the car handles far sharper than the Ford Focus
