Sweet! That sure look good.
How is the ride compare to before?
Honestly, the ride quality is great. However I am still playing with the settings to get the best stock ride.

But I am completely happy.

:D

Your Q50 looks like an EX in that preview pic! Haha jk! :D

Dialed back my settings some more today and mid 5s from soft and it seems to hold up in the freeways a lot closer to stock now! Currently @ 7 clicks in from soft in front and 5 @ the back!

I'm going to have to copy those settings! How are you bro? Now that my Q is lowered on these stock 19s and I really happy with the look and I am not even thinking of wheels right now.. it break necks all day with it like this now. haha

And Elk grove isnt full of the Qs yet too.. so maybe when it gets more popular I'll consider wheels

Definitely bro! Savor the moment! I think u went softer though so yours might be a more comfortable setting but then again yours seem lower than mine! Maybe try 5 from soft front and back!

Dont rush on the wheels man! Get one when u feel comfortable and when u see the right wheels u want! I wont get mine for quite some time anyway!

I bet you can't wait! Lol dude.. I should of got the **** Hybrid. The payments would of been higher but I would save on the gas bill. I am averaging 17.8 and thats all city. And thats all I drive.

And I wish I had more torque. Too bad I have to wait 28 more months lol Send me a vid of your q50 burning out!

Haha! I am averaging 22mpg only though! I think its because my commute isnt that far that its not able to store much power in the battery to even go to ev mode! The torque is definitely fun! A lot of my friends were like little kids when they tried to floor Oreo! Definitely worth the extra $$$ IMO! Its cool man! Just a little bit more! Just hang in there! Hahaha! :D

Haha! These tires are too expensive for a burnout man! Dont have spares as well! Hahaha! We'll see! Too many popos around lately! Its like somebody is being pulled over @ every corner in my area! :eek:

how hard is it to adjust the settings on the fly? do you reach in the wheel wells and crank a knob? or is there another way of doing it

sorry im sure this is a really stupid question

Haha! Nah its a perfectly valid question!

U mean the dampening setting right? It basically has a knob up top on every shock ranging from softest to stiffest with 30 clicks between them! The front ones are easy! Just pop the hood and it should be in the area where u mount strut bars on! The rears are harder to access and thats why I asked for extensions! The rears are covered by the seats and u would have to take out the bottom and the back of the seat to get to it! The extensions help since it just sticks out!

If u see my build thread, I had the extensions run thru the seatbelt bracket so that I wouldnt need to drill to get them thru! Those extensions basically screw on top of the dampening adjustment knob for the rears!

Hope that helps man! :)

Turns out there isn't any rubbing, but slight scraping of that black mud flap under the car and some scraping of the side skirts by the front wheels during driveway climbs. Kinda a headache but that's the lifestyle lol

scraping a brand new q50 like a pro

Thanks man! Scraping isn't fun but it has to be done. And it's a anti-wife device when it comes to her requesting to drive it. lol she hasn't asked to drive it since hahahah I'm joking she can drive it anytime she wants.
