Thanks for the positive comments everyone. I must admit the lower ride height has a pretty dramatic effect on the look/presence of the car. Maybe not so much from that low angle picture, but when you're standing beside the car it definitely looks hunkered down. I think the new lower body bits help there as well. The bigger boots appear to fill out the wheel wells better too, with a smaller gap above the tire.

Had a couple of drives so far and the handling is awesome. Very flat cornering and controlled ride. A bit firm on mid settings, which is where I set the damping rates initially but much closer to stock on the lower settings. Should be able to adjust for cruising or playing on the track fairly quickly, once I get more familiar with the settings.

No more front splash guards because of the new rockers but I left the rears on for now. Even with the guards on since new, the bottoms of the stock rockers are trashed. Couldn't really see it much when they were on because they roll under instead of flaring out like the new ones, but they are very rough. Hopefully the shape of these won't show too much of the inevitable rock chips.

Joe is making/designing new splash guards
