    short stroke with very little droop- another reason I like they Koni's they offer a couple of mm MORE than even the oe struts which have a gob of travel

    On a smooth race track, you can get by w/ very little stroke (you still have to have enough bump travel to keep out of the stops). I was looking at the Ohlin Flag series (despite their hefty price tag), but upon doing some research found they were very short stroked- enough so I have ruled them out.

    i use the ap. i'm not to sure how the u tec works. but the ap is fairly easy to use and they offer off the shelf maps for your mods. and if you want you can go and get a protune to have a more specific tune.

They also offer one of the widest ranges of damping adj- from full soft to full firm-out there. Motorsport proven as well (again and again ).

    Damn- maybe Koni should put me on the payroll?
    So do I have to buy both STi Pink Springs and Koni inserts to drop my car?

    The springs provide the drop- they work w/ the oe struts- ofcourse they work even better w/ the Koni's

    If your struts are relatively new, give them a go w/ the oe struts, when the oe struts start giving out (they are a wear item contrary to what some folks think) upgrade the struts then.

    Been a while

    Got some oddball shots... I'll get some better ones this weekend.

    Put a 50% tint on lights and new wheels/rims.

    gotcha I think the 06/07 front bumper cover for the wagon and sedan might closer to each other than previous model years- it takes a fair amount of work to get a sedan lip/spoiler to fit (w/o doing a sedan front swap) on the earlier MY's- definitely doable, but a PITA from everything I've read

    The crazy thing about this picture...the guy in the grey hoodie looks like he's actually leaning on the front of the car.
