      Photo is by Dito @ gotbluemilk.com. Dito abides at the big three NorCal tracks.

      Turn 4 at Laguna, I think.

      There's been a few threads on that.

      The easy band-aid is to make sure the little drain holes at the bottom of the box are clear, not clogged with debris.

      Other than that, most folks end up...

      Yeah, I think the key issue is if you power up the car with some portion of the headlights electrically disconnected. It latches a fault and will no longer level until the code is cleared.

      You want to keep the rolling diameter as similar as possible front to rear. Easiest way to do that is to run the same tire. Differences in rolling diameter makes the Haldex think there is slipping,...

      I haven't driven in one, but I did some right seat instruction in one and I was impressed. I'm also 6'-06". A touch tight for me with a helmet on, but I haven't investigated after market seats.

      At that mileage range buying used, I would verify "no codes" and also basic Haldex functionality. Just lightly launch it, maybe on wet pavement, and verify four wheels bite.

      Does that re-use part of the stock snorkel but not all of it?
