    Update on the Upgraded mounts. They are DAMN good. If you have stock DP's, it literally took me 20 mins from start to finish to install these. Yes the car vibrates more (it has gotten better with the mileage) but the 1-2, and particularly the 2 to 3 shift is amazing. If you don't mind the mild vibration, and want the performance, these are probably the 2nd best mod besides a tune IMHO.

    OEM windshield glass way better than the cheap stuff most places offer. The cost difference is big if you are price sensitive but you get what you pay for.

    I love that cooler option. Looking forward to before/after install readings.

    Here is what my LiveWire was telling me while I cruised down the freeway at 80 mph in 105 degree heat....so yeah...

    Before anyone says anything....the accel pedal position is at zero because the cruise control is on.

    Yep, that is with the upgraded GearHead intercooler. Literally my only saving grace is E30.

    Got the custom overlays in. Installed them, and they are perfect. Just the burnt copper color I wanted.

    Now I have to snag some black lug nuts, and when my new license plate frame comes in hopes that it somewhat matches the overlays.

    Dude, I would seriously think about the upgraded trans mount for your car.

    It is doing well. I haven't washed the car since I did all of the work weeks ago. All I do right now is, dust it very gently (yes I know if can cause swirls), clean off any finger prints and bugs (usually without any product), and use the TLC as quick detailer. The stuff is amazing.
