20% looks great on a black car. It is a little tricky backing up at night though. If you want the car to look sick, do 20%. But 35% is a little more practical.
What are you looking at for MPG with the stage 2 tune? Looking to get the tune but it is driven daily 120 miles so I don't want to loose too much. In the end I am sure I'll end up will a full stage 3 because I always end up learning to the side of more power.
i agree with you leaning towards power, which is why i went from stock to stg2 lol.
umm, if you drive normally for a commute, its about the same mpg, i didnt really notice a difference. i drive ~100 mi daily as well. i like the tune because if i am bored ill go for a joyride and have a grand old time
its definitely worth it, can still be a perfect daily, as well as ALOT of fun to drive. especially if you floor it in 2nd (w/out ASR on of course) you're fwd will spin a bit before biting into the road and pulling you nice and hard.
yeah im adding a little more red trim to it, and im going to get the coilovers soon and the sway bars. cant wait for it to be lowered. maybe new wheels too, have yet to decide on that. when its lowered ill have some professional shots done
