Groovy. Do you get much chassis flex with the soft top?

Sure, Tanabe makes decent STBs and UBs for more than reasonable prices. Both are easy installs as well.

I'm running both, but am still on stock springs and haven't had a chance to really push the car since winter is still in full swing up here in Canada lol. For the price it's hard to go wrong.

Nice! Your ride is looking awesome! I was wondering on your headlights? They look like the 09 oem hid ones but they also look different. Can you explain all that's been done to them?
