BCR Coilovers For 2009 300C AWD
Hey guys, so now that I got my matte black wrap, new rims, and window tint, I'm ready for the last mod, which is to lower the car. I read here that BCR coilovers seem to be very good so I decided to go with that. I was just wondering about some things...
1. With a Borla Extreme Catback Exhaust (the one with the 5 inch tips), how much is it ok to lower it, as to not scrape the exhaust on speed bumps etc. I was thinking either 1.5 inches front & rear, or 1.5 front & 1 rear. There's also the issue of loading the car with 5 passengers, so what would be best?
2. In relation to question 1, which setting gives optimal performance, equal lowering front & rear, or aggressive front stance (more front than rear). Ideally, I would like to improve fuel econo & performance (0-60 time especially) so is it better to have front & rear same, or is it better for front lower than rear
3. In terms of comfort level, I know the BCR's have 30 settings of dampening. I heard people say 2 is very comfy, but it seems too low given 30 levels. Would a 5 be ok in terms of comfort & performance? In relation to Q1, with loading 5 passengers, if the suspension is stiffer, will that reduce the lowering amount caused by the passengers sitting in the car? If so, then would a 10 be better?
Any tips would be useful. Thanks!
