Might as well update this thread. Aside from the aforementioned JCW Tuning kit, since getting the car, I have: -Upgraded the rear sway bar to a 22mm NM Engineering rear sway bar -Installed NM Engineering Power Module -Replaced the shift **** with a JCW Pro duckbill shift **** (easy to do, but requires muscle) -Replaced OEM chassis braces with Cravenspeed Big Pair -Replaced the OEM runflat tires with Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's (Bridgestone RE003's for non americans), and picked up a spare OEM wheel/tire/center cap/TPMS sensor from a specialty junkyard What does this translate to? a faster, sticker, better handling, more well balanced car. Unfortunately, it's lost a little bit of ride comfort, but not much. I'll put a padded seat cover on my car if it becomes an issue. And these are only the performance focused upgrades, not the cosmetic ones, which there are a few. There are other things I plan on doing, but I don't want to sacrifice reliability, and I'm still making student loan payments in one of the most expensive US cities... so the plan is progressing slower than I'd like it to. But I'm also not bankrupting myself for this project. And a pic!
