Well, it's been a while since i've posted on my build thread. a fair amount of things happened to my CT in regards to mods since the Hella horns were installed back in Oct 2013. Since the upgrade horns were installed, the following have been installed onto my CT:

Parrt - Date Installed
TOMS Push Start Power Button - 11/9/2013
TOMS Valve Stem Caps - 11/23/2013
TOMS Shift **** - 11/23/2013

Things waiting to be installed... TOMS Strut bar and PIAA 2500k Plastma Ion Yellow fog lights.

1 nice big surprise on order. Some color change surprise to come later.

All mods focused around maintaining max mpg and full functionality. I'm more about functional stance rather the slammed scene. Just my cup of tea. The looks of my car can be desribed as Super OEM Plus+++ lol.

Here is the information page of the tints i got - http://www.wincosir.com/car_tint.html ... MikeZ on the CL forums also got these tints (not same %) on his Lotus Exige.

Some updated pics of my CT!

The latest and greatest TOMS goodies: (grid pic used for Instagram)

Default suspension questions

I was wondering what your thoughts were on the tanabe sustech pro coilovers since you've been with them for a while now. I do have a bunch of questions and hope you have time to answer to help me out.

How is the quality overall? Similiar or better than stock?
Did you go to the lowest setting? If not how low would you estimate?
Where did you end up leaving the damper settings?
Did you need a camber kit for both front and rear or just the front?
Whether or not you you needed them were you able to get close to oem specs on alignment?
How are the other components holding up that normally get affected when lowering the car? Ex. Ball joint.
did the road noise increase dramatically being that your closer to the road?

I do apologize for all the questions. I can seem to find threads to have this answer for this particular product and you've done quiet a bit of mods to your car. Currently I just threw on vossen cv3 and next step is to lower but I just want to make sure i have everything in order before I pull the trigger.

I'll answer to the best of my ability!

Ride quality, its just a tad more stiff n firm, you will for sure feel the bumps n stuff on the road a bit more, but it's nothing unbearable at all. these were my first pair of coilovers ever. this was my first car ever. my cousin helped me install these and he's had his share of experience of coilovers. he was impressed by the comfort and handling. it's still a very smooth ride, perfect for hybrids. i did notice some squeaking, but that's bound to happen. i forget at what miles they started at but im currently at ~24k miles. i had my coilovers installed at 5300 miles. but i recently brought it to a shop and i told em about it. they musta done something because it squeaks a lot less haha. not that it did that much in the first place.

i am not on the lowest setting. i have about a 2 finger gap in the front and 1 finger gap in the rear. i can go a little bit lower in the front/rear but i choose not to because i'd like to avoid scraping up my lip. also, the speed bumps at work are huge. from the ground to my the bottom of my side skits, it's just a smidge lower than an iphone 4s. low enough for me lol

for the sustec pro s-0c coilovers for the CT, you can't change dampening settings, it comes as is.

i am running 17x7 +38 offest all around with 10mm spacers in the front and 15mm spacers in the back, i don't have any extra camber stuff. i had the shop check out how much more room i have before i needed to roll fenders. they said i'm pretty much at the max. i could probs squeeze 2 to 3 more mm without rolling, but i should to be safe. i don't plan on adding any bigger spacers than i already have. if i were to add larger spacers, i would then have to change out my studs again.

lol when i had my alignment checked a bit after i had my coilovers installed, they said it was fine and i didn't need anything. this may have changed after i installed the spacers, i didnt get it checked again after that. i however recently got it checked for free when i had something looked at a local lexus dealer... i got some adjusting to do so that is next on my list. i have like -1.5 deg camber in the back and -1 degree in the front. and my toe is slightly off in the front.

i'm assuming the other components are doing just fine because i haven't felt anything weird, nor has anyone said anything to me.

road noise, didn't notice anything. i am still using OEM tires. i also blast my korean pop music very loud so a lot of things are drowned out haha.

i hope these answers provide some insight for you. let me know if you need more.
