Construction is good (materials, welds)
Finish is really good (powdercoat grey)
Install super easy (remove front 'tray'), fit up perfect first time.

What about feedback on handling? Do you push your car on twisty roads? AutoX? HPDE? I wouldn't think this would do much unless you are above 7/10ths. Also what about ground clearance? I assume you lost a bit?

I have not tested long sweepers.
I have taken some medium radius 80 degree turns on pavement between 70-90 kph
Immediately noticed a firmer, sharper feel at initial turn in (same good feel on quick lane changes).
It seems to have induced more over-steer, but that may be due to some other factors.
I have not had a chance to push it far or often enough.
I suspect I will hit the tire grip limits (stock) before this equipment is fully realized.
I also suspect that upgraded coilovers (and other suspension upgrades) will unlock more potential.
It's pretty light.
Ground clearance lost is about 2"...I'll see if I can remember to take a picture.

Looking at the photos, the 4-point will still allow me to use the under tray. Good. Was worried about that.
I did not replace the front under tray but I'm certain that a small notch will need to be made.

NOTE:
Pierce refused to give me torque spec for re tightening the 4 bolts.
I tightened all the bolts first with impact driver then with long handle wrench.
They loosened and rattled after a few weeks.
I had a random garage tighten them since they had a hoist and did it for $20 cash. (took them 10 min).
That was 2 weeks ago.
Next week I'll have them checked again.

Hope something doesn't jump up off the road and hit the oil pan. ;)

Weird, mine are hand tight (good'n tite!) and they have never come loose. Using an impact and cranking the down with a long wrench seems like overkill.
