    That article has caused all sorts of controversy on the FoRS forum. Although he has some of his facts incorrect (it was actually every single 2016 and and most 2017s that got recalled for the headgasket), his overall impressions of the car and various modifications were right on point. My car has very similar modifications (KWs, e-tune, intercooler, etc) and he is correct about how the KWs absolutely transform the car. I, too, HATED the way mine rode and was contemplating unloading it but then I found some NIB KW DDCs on ebay for a significant discount. Thank goodness I did because the car is so much better to drive now, both around town and during "brain-out" activities. And his issue with the seat is very size-specific. I am 6'2" 180lbs and they fit me perfectly, even on 3+ hour trips. A friend of mine who is shorter and stockier finds them uncomfortable when he has driven it.

    As for the wheels, yeah no thank you! Plus, they are heavy, too. I have CF5s on mine.
