sedans arent that bad, you just cant try to rice them out or its a big FAIL! Just go along with the mentality that a coupe is a sporty version, and the sedan is more of a "nice" car, dont lower it too mugh, because you'll be like me and cant have 2 people in the back seat but yeah, WELCOME!

Welcome! I'm also an engineering student. Mechanical, 3rd year. almost done YAAAY!!! lol. If you want to learn lots about performance join your school's formula SAE team, (that is if they have one...but they should), you could learn a LOT about 4-cylinder engines etc and there's usually some really knowledgeable people there.

Hope to see you doing some nice performance mods soon! i"m debating/hoping to go turbo next summer but i'm still not sure, for a few reasons, if I should yet. We shall see I guess

nice thanks for the warm welcome everyone. i agree man, i actually really like the sedan. and theres no way im gonna rice it out i hate that look im trying to go classy. my balts black with 5% tints all around. i got 17" ace alloys wrapped in toyo proxes ( not liking the huge gap she may need to be dropped properly soon). swapped out the stock headunit and did some custom work installing 6x8 RF Powers in place of the horrible front speakers that were fading in and out. have some interior led's etc. etc. i'll try to post some pics up tmrw. also I'm over here in seaford so any islanders out there keep any eye out i'm perpetually driving around :bigsmile:

hey whats up man i'm really interested in lowering my sedan and yours is riding real low so maybe you could give me some advice. im assuming you just swapped out the springs and didnt touch the struts. ive heard mixed things about just throwing the springs in but a lot of people seem to do it and no problems. so have you had any issues with your setup and any recommendations and how low to go? you mentioned not to go to low and i def wanna heed that warning haha

you gotta pay to play if you want a proper drop. i've been driving around long island with about 3 inches of ground clearance for about 2 months now and my front bumper is still there. it's not too bad. you might see me around route 135 i'm over there often.
