Wonder why I've been told T2 / T3? Will probably end up with rake which appearance wise doesn't bother me if it's not extreme. But I don't want to end up scraping the front on speed bumps and inclines.

I think I'm getting closer to a decision on suspension upgrades (thanks to a lot of youse guys input). I'm leaning to the Koni/Eibach 1145-1018 kit (Yellows & Eibach Prokits). I've also been doing a bunch of bad math trying to figure out how I can achieve the 'agile AND comfortable' requirements. I'll explain the math in a later post.

But the math part went a bit like this YouTube vid:
