Black wheels look much better in person than in pictures to me for some reason.
The Neuspeeds are lighter which I'm sure helps with the overall feel.

Installed my suspension over the weekend:
Tyrolsport deadset front subframe kit
Eurosport Street camber
O34 Rear shock mounts
Bilstein B6 DCC
New OEM bearings, Strut mounts, Hardware, Bumpstops
Install was smooth and easier than I anticipated. Overall, it took just under 6 hours to do everything. I purposefully purchased all the associated suspension bits to make the install a straight swap. First time doing work on the suspension of my R (aside from the rear Neuspeed bar I installed a couple of years ago with MOOG endlinks) but have installed many suspension setups on previous cars (STI, S2000, Miata, Tacoma)...Used a 2x2 ~23” long with a hole drilled near the top to pass the pinch bolt through the endlink mount and compress the shock out of the knuckle.
I am enthusiastically pleased to say the least! The car rides amazing! It is compliant, controlled, and comfortable. The new suspension is hardly firmer than stock...in ways it rides much more comfortably due to the lack of “floatiness” the stock OEM suspension exhibits. Each mode on the DCC is far more distinguishable and squat/dive/roll is near non-existent! The car just had so much more control. I cannot speak highly enough of this setup (have had many cars in my past with dedicated track coil overs that were just not as forgiving around town, but that’s no surprise).
Alignment was done and is near perfect! I gained some caster over my stock alignment I had back in December, gained another 1.2 of camber and best of all everything is even all around. Once I’m in the car all the numbers match up!
Crummy picture with a dirty car in a level empty school parking lot. I’ll take better pics when I get a chance.
In case anyone is wondering I am running BFI F/R Spacers 8/10 respectively with Motorsport Hardware 78mm race studs riding on Indy 500 235/35 19 (got a great deal on them so I bit the bullet, but wish I had gone PS4S...next time)
Finally put in my spare tire kit. Exciting, I know.

Decided to trade my S4 for this mint CPO with 3k on it. So far I am very happy with the decision. I have 034 rear sway & endlinks ordered, trying to decide on what tune to get. Had Eurodyne on my S4 and on my GTI before that, heard great things about IE, might go that route.

Requiring a trip to a dealer or tuning shop is the way of the past. UM? Great tuners, but you are tied to the shop and no way to recoup any costs. Pointless for a stock turbo car. They won't extract any more power than the rest like APR, Uni, etc...
Eurodyne (if you prefer full control)
soon you will also have ECUtek and HPTuners
IE is just like the rest of the canned tunes.
