    Tarmac IIs and Prodrive springs installed- Pics

    I went out in a limb with the wheels, as I hadn't seen them mounted on a CGM WRX. I think they compliment the color perfectly. Prodrive springs are amazing! I am so impressed with the improvement in handling. The loose, boaty stock feeling is gone, car is very nimble and much more precise. The rear end stays right in line with the front end, very minimal correction required after a quick turn. They got rid of the ugly wheel gap too but left the car high] enough to not worry about scraping or bottoming out in normal driving situations. I highly recommend these springs. Bought them from Mauro Motorsports for $279.

    thats what i want. springs that lower your car but still retain enough ground clearence to withstand daily driving. are you going to get some new struts also or just keep the springs. btw the car looks excellent.

    She looks great.

    What program do you use to make the files smaller? You always take such great pics and then its gets all jagged (what is this PS2?lol).

    Try photobucket.com, if you cant make the pics smaller it will do it for you so its perfect.

    Prodrive says these springs are made to work with your stock struts, but I don't doubt they will go sooner. Stock dampers work very well with them performance wise. I dont expect them to go for at least 25-30k miles at which point I will probably spring for some adjustable KYBs or something.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    I always just attach them here so I am limited by the max file size here. I have the full hi res versions on my computer. I never bother to host them anywhere. I will look into getting better versions up. I just load them into iPhoto on my Mac and shrink the image to 600x450 to get it to the file size that wil fit on here.

    Very tight looking car!

    I'm probably going this way as well (with the Prodrives)... how stiff is the ride now? Performance is one thing, i'm really interested in the comfort level of linear springs.

    Very nice, I like the water look... I was thinking about those rims, how do you like them, I have never seen any in person. Also has anyone used RS*R Ti2000 springs, they are progressive, but I dont know if I want a progressive spring or not, are the Prodrive springs Progressive?

    Comfort was a key factor for me as well. These springs ride almost as comfortbaly as stock. Most of the increased noise and road feel is probably a result of the 17 inch wheels more than the springs.
