    I'm still running the original summer tires so traction is not there befor I could stand on the throttle in 3 gear but now jest putting the throttle half way in 4 the car will kick out on me . All in all yes if you are wanting more power and not wanting to tune then it is the best bang for the buck . My local dealer gave me a good deal 1,350 parts 300 labor .

    OP... just to be clear these are not gear sets... this is replacing the diff assembly. The ring gear is actually welded to the carrier in these cars so you can't just replace gears. Now with that said changing the whole rear as an assembly for $1350 doesn't seem like a bad deal.;)

    only neg----worse MPG and higher RPMS on your engine=faster engine wear

    im also considering this mod and could care less about MPG

    cost is much more than i expected though....nice thing is it shouldnt void the warranty
