The suspension is just a bit too vague for me, but I have no particular desire to shell out $1500 on a car I don't expect to have for more than a couple of years... (Certainly not past warranty expiration.)

Persuade me or dissuade me? :p I intend to install them myself. 90% of the tools I would have to buy anyway (floorjack, jackstands, etc...), so the cost of tools is not important.

I told you, I don't feel like spending $1500, Nate. :p

And I know the xi has shorter springs. I'm starting to think that I might as well try it. $200-$300 isn't much, anyhow. and most of the tools are needed for swaybars.

Anyone make xi ones that have short enough travel so the halfshafts don't fall out?

If I'm going to swap my car for another vehicle, it's going to be a new S4 Avant. :p I like the way AWD cars let you hammer the throttle indiscriminately. :D

It can't be that indiscriminate with open differentials and all season tires :dunno: Don't spin any of them?
Sadly, I have ADB-X, which can't be turned off. But it does fairly effective simulate the feel of the better AWD systems I've driven. I liked the feel of the car the one time I drove it with ADB disabled the hard way... Noticably faster, especially in turns... But I'm NOT goign to give up ABS for a bit of speed. Clutch dropping the WRX into a turn is FUN, though. :D

ADB-X cannot be disabled?

The hard way? You didn't take the fuse out, did you? ;)
Of course I did. :p five or six of them, actually. :D

Edit: Gosh... 1300th post...

I can't believe you pulled fueses to do that



I assume some warning lights came on, now you have fault codes saved on your OBC :dunno:
I had to try it. :)
