Hey Vise, give a review on those sway bars after you try them out. My KW HAS went on today. Those sway bars may be my next mod.
When you get the chance, can you post pics of the car equipped with those CLs?
They look very nice...

Yeah I'll post pics hopefully this weekend. In the meantime it should look exactly like this.

Nice, best of luck with the centerlocks and hope they work out fine. I'm sure you've read the same but I've heard they do work but aren't recommended by Porsche due to some slight difference to the 991 setup. At the cost + potential impact if something goes wrong I'll stick with my black nuts.

As for the sway bars... they are installed but I've only had a very limited opportunity to do any spirited driving. Immediate feedback after a few aggressive on/off ramps is that turn-in feels sharper and overall the car is more planted + stable during aggressive cornering. They do however make some clicking/tapping noise at low speeds due to the drop links included for the front... it is somewhat noticeable but not a huge deal IMO, at least not so far anyways.

The real test will be in two weeks at my next track day, stay tuned... and also make sure you post some pics of your car with the KW HAS kit installed!

Default 991.1 C2S Cab mods

Bought a 991.1 C2S cab in agate grey earlier this year and so far can highly recommend the mods I've done, all are fully reversible so far:

- paint protection film
- mod4cars SmartTOP -must-have for cabs
- Brodit (Proclip in US) Centre console mount + iPhone 6 tilt-swivel active holder with cig plug: the fixed black lightning cable runs easily under the trim to the glovebox where it's usb end can be removed from the cig plug if desired. I also bought their 15deg wedge angle spacer (fits between mount and holder) to orient the phone more towards the driver when in place
This setup took a lot of trial and error and buying and returning different parts but v happy with the result, much better than my previous Ram mount + windshield suction cup solution
- t-design sunglasses holster (edit: works fine with Brodit mount in place too on same side, after some customisation by t-design)

Latex.


What did your install cost? So far, I'm quoted 850 one dealer and one Indy shop. $750 at other dealer.

Any issues with setting this wheel up to work? I may go that way and move to this one and have them install the Sports Design control stalk in my 991.1 to control my MF controls. Should work correct?

I get 5w50 which most places don't carry. It's on sale for $5.79/qt. Plus there is a $12 rebate per 5 quarts. So it's a great deal.

I got some coil springs from http://www.sterling-springs.co.uk/ company. I guess, it is one of the best manufacturers nowadays. The prices are really good too. I can recommend you guys to go for it as well
