Very excited
Some good upgrades in your future for sure! The front and rear sways will really help you carve through the canyons, you'll love the way the car feels after the install.

Just a thought though, possibly consider the XB over the UB first. The XB really ties the rear of the car together and helps eliminate panel flex and sway that hatchbacks suffer from while aggressively cornering. Makes quite a noticeable difference.

You already have two oem braces underneath (though they're small), but NOTHING in the hatch, just sayin'.

I haven't had them in the snow as of yet (living in Southern California!) - but yes, there was a very slight gap but it was barely noticeable and you'd never know unless you were looking for it.

Cool! I've heard the same thing from a few people now . . . I might have to look more into that!

So I was having an issue with finding a catted midpipe for my Eurojet turboback and my only recourse was finding a shop to weld a cat in, or so I thought. The finish on the Eurojet is just so nice and the build quality is fantastic, I really didn't want to cut into it . . .

Thankfully, I didn't have to!

I contacted the people over at the Eurojet site and presented them with my dilemma. To my great satisfaction I now have a custom midpipe that will mesh perfectly with my Eurojet system. Very happy with the quality, I'm going to a shop right now to get it put on.

Thanks dude! It was cool meeting up with you and everyone else. Your car with Chris' old exhaust sounds so good! I'm very jealous.

Got my vanity plate the other day. 7 month wait but it looks so good. Very happy! Got her cleaned for the first time in a long while, she was getting pretty dirty.
