Thanks! It's good to know there aren't any issues lowering it for the winter… I may do a suspension upgrade in the future (FRPP). I'll go with some winter tires next winter, as I plan to drive it more during the winter after the clutch is broken in...

I have no issues with my car in the snow. This is the first FWD I've owned that had a rear sway bar so the first time I got a taste of lift off oversteer lets just say I couldn't wipe the grin off my face.

Just realized I have a set of these on mine lol I have the "FR" badges except on the steering wheel. It is a nice small thing to make it your own. Before you posted that I was just confused as to why I had two different badges

I also have the emblem overlays. I just got the package for all 3, front, rear and steering wheel. I absolutely love em, got mine with "svt" cut out with carbon over red. Deff adds a nice custom touch.

I'd like to see all the different iterations of these badges that people have gotten… there should be a picture thread of all the different badges some of us have gotten.

Thats a good idea. I have seen some pretty cool ones, I played around with diff color combos and I really liked how it looked with "svt" in red with the carbon fiber on top. My car is red so it looks awsome. Not sure if I have any pics in my photo bucket of just the overlays... I'll take a look and if I do I'll post it or maybe just make a emblem overlay thread... Im bored at work so I got nothin else to do, being a bowling alley mechanic im just on call when machines break down... The rest of the time im out back or cleaning my car lol.
