Default Rear roll bar is 20mm, vs 14mm on your car.

A huge difference.

I have one on my car, makes a huge difference, on top of the H&Rs.

Default the differences I was referring to was between US and euro S8 suspension, I can not wait to update

my car. I so saw the limitations of it this past weekend. Yes I know that it is all about balance. But what I found was that the more I balance the car the faster I get and the less the car can stop from those speeds. The first thing is brakes then suspension.

Default smart move, does anyone sell the sway bars separate?

I just wonder if 2bennett is offering a good deal or is it cheaper to by separate parts. I like the 6 piston brembos, i will more then likely be doing the same.

Default yea, my 18's look the same. its funny how wheel gaps can make your wheels look.

I think its about the same as the bil/eib combo, maybe a little less. but still, its an improvement. The question is, Have any of you S8 owners changed your suspension? What was your difference? and what did you use?
