You should mention what discount you got on the XT4 for a fair comparaison, no way you were paying MSRP
Now that being said if I was comparing the 2 and I were used to an ATS-V I’d probably also take the M4.0
Since to me the power is more than adequate I compared with a X3 2.8 when making my...
Wow can’t beleive it’s been so long
I’m trading in my ATS for and XT4 this week so thought i’d do an update
Investors had my same set of Eibach springs on 2 cars a 2014 RWD sedan for about 18months and then move them to my Premium AWD coupe for 3 years . I have about a total of 60 000 miles...
Gotcha, what the weight on these?
I'll assume you have a sedan , The 33 offset will have them 9mm further outboard than stock which is a little more than a 1/4 inch and there's plenty of room left.
For reference I was runnin 18x9 ET35 wheels on my Sedan. Which were 20mm further than stock...
If you're going to spend $550 wheel on a 17" wheel at least please make sure to select the right offset
I can almost guarantee you if you chose this wheel in 17" at a 46mm offset you'll regret as it will look like crap :tisk:
If you're set on 17" you need to go at a minimum with the...
These are Sedan specs wrong for Coupe
I've posted this before but unfortunately every site for wheel I've seen have the wrong stock offset for the Coupe (I believe they all use the same database which is wrong) . I discovered this when I tried moving my aftermarket wheels from...
Had them over 2 years on the RWD Sedan then moved them to my AWD Coupe last year
Works perfect on both cars
And I did use the bump stop on both
OEM shock are plenty good unless your tracking
You have to remove rear shocks to install the rear stops
I was the one who posted these
Did not like them as much in person for my red car AND more importantly once I saw them realized you need to go 20" to look their best and I prefer 19s
Looks like Eibach angle of the picture and the wheels not too flush with the fender makes them look...
Any replacement muffler will be louder than stock as the OEM unit is huge, However to be honest my system is really not that loud for reference I would compare the level to a bit less loud than a stock WRX,
If you would want quieter you could use the Dynomax VT or Magnaflow muffler with the...
Hey guys finally fixed the last thing that was bugging me about my car.
I love the look I have achieve with the suspension and wheels I have installed but always felt the car was way too quiet even under hard acceleration, I had checked the available options from Borla, Magnaflow, Corsa and KPE...
A few clarifications
yes 265/40 is exact match for 235/45
Offsets for your coupe wheels are ET32 front and back
235/45 & 265/40 tires are 1.25 inches taller not 1/2
Ride height will be about 1/2 inch higher , which I understand is what you're looking for
If you plan on lowering your car...
