      Just curious, has the OP worked out the savings he hopes for from a higher mpg vehicle versus the cost of the change? If the OP drives his R 20,000 mi/yr at 20 mpg and fills up with premium gas the...

      I'm sure Abe is right as usual. His knowledge of these vehicles runs deep, but I can anecdotally say that I've run 17" OZ ULs for 3 seasons with Michelin PSS 245s without incident on the...

      I live dangerously it seems. I've had the RNS510 for 3 years. I have parked my car at the airport for 2 weeks in the winter and didn't have a problem even with a 6 year old battery (finally replaced...

      Naw. Nothing new to report. The original impressions still stand. My only complaint is that I've been so swamped at work and home that I haven't swapped out for my much lighter summer wheels yet. ...

      Ryan, You are at 3300 now? Not too shabby. That's without the rear seats? Spare? OEM battery? But you've added a few things like oil cooler. Did the mishimoto radiator save anything over stock?

      Good information. Your weight is within 1% of the C&D weight which is probably the best we can hope for in terms of accuracy. Keep us apprised of your weight reduction program!

      A useful comparison, just occurred to me:

      The GTI (mk5) weighs 3178 lbs based on C&D review. They have F:R at 1970:1208 which is 62:38. So by doing the full R32 weight reduction (seats, spare,...

      Based on C&D's review they listed the stock car at 3551 lbs without the driver and a full tank of gas: F=2130.6 and R=1420.4

      That works out to exactly 60:40 F:R ratio.

      Taking out the spare,...

      I would agree with all you said, but the more I toy with the suspension and drop weight, I get the sense there is a sports car lurking in this platform. To get there will require more power to push...

      I guess the CTS answer to the two questions posed about this product amount to: "If you need to ask what the benefit would be, you shouldn't own one." :(
