Default New member from GTA: 2013 Obsidian F-Sport

Picked up a 2013 Obsidian F-Sport last month and have been reading some of the posts here. Thought it would be a good time to post an intro!

Love the car from many perspectives - but can't stand the rattles and cabin noise....

A couple of mods:
-Pinnacle Tine
-RPF1 w/K12s

Car received a nice wash and Klasse AIO today! Looking forward to the next 4 years with this car!







Next mod: F-Sport Blue springs and sway bars

Rattles? Ours is 10 months old and has none except the roof when it is open and that's to be fixed with a new track. Can you be more specific? Anyway, nice car - ours is identical!

RPF1 specs:

18x8 +35 all around
73mm hub - required hub rings

Front is near flush, rear is still about 5-8mm in. Under compression, looks like front will be fine even if I lower the car.

Remove the cargo cover and make sure the the rear seats are securely latched. Check for anything loose under the cargo floor and check for the passenger seat belt buckle is not hitting against the B-pillar.

Congrats though and hopefully you will enjoy your car as much as I have so far.
