You know, those time-zones can be a motherfucker. It gets lonely up in here around this time.


It's 7:33 here in South Korea.

Here's my dashcam installation...

I installed the MultiSafer in the boot in the fuse box area, set to 12V cutoff, but this is a little too low, as sometimes I come back to the car and comfort access doesn't work.

I might swap the MultiSafer out for a secondary battery/capacitor-style solution that doesn't use the car's main battery to run the dashcam at all...

I tried to take a photo of the rear camera from outside the car, but you literally cannot see it at all.

Nice car and great pics, thanks for sharing. I'm considering the KV HAS set as well, how are you enjoying the ride with the HAS? It seems that you dropped the back quite nicely, however, you left some room on the front as there is a little more gap. If you don't mind me asking, what are your settings and your motivation behind your setup with the HAS?

Mineral White over full SO is so choice! Excellent combo of mods, too

Looks fantastic! Thanks for also sharing pics of your BlackVue setup. I plan to get the DR600GW-HD and this reaffirms that these are very discreet options.

What is that "connected drive" I see on the picture above?
Never seen it before?

I have the same setup with the multi safer and also get the warning from the car that the battery is draining. I am pretty sure i have it at 12v as well. If you use a secondary battery please post how it all worked out. Thanks!

I will try to post some pics of my set up once i get the car out of hibernation weather is horrible here in chicago.

The ride quality is fine IMHO...

In my opinion, the HAS spring rates are not a good match to the dampers set to comfort, which makes the car extremely bouncy and unsettled over ripple type roads surfaces with bumps in quick succession. It's okay on roads with the occasional bump though.

However, the dampers set to SPORT is excellent and I actually think is improved over the standard spring rate/damper matching. This is my default setting now.

I don't use SPORT+ unless I'm really fanging it on smooth roads, which is quite rare.

As you've noticed, I'm still playing around with the ride height, which is obviously the advantage of this kit. I'm not an 18 year old anymore and don't want my car slammed. I want good clearance, and good handling.

I'm trying to get the front ride height perfect first for clearance reasons, as I don't want to destroy my beautiful Mode Carbon front lip, and then I'll match the wheel gap to the rear after I've settled on the final ride height.
