    Thanks for the replies @sixman @lflouie

    What are folks thoughts on the Neuspeed bars?
    Considering the above information, would it make the ride ridiculously extreme by comparison?
    Front- 25 mm
    Rear- 25 mm

    Even though my car is mostly AutoX and track intended, would it make unfriendly for an occasional long haul road tripper?

    Am I over thinking it?...
    As a noob, should I just go whiteline pack w/ the end links and be done with it?
    Start there and form a base understanding for what I like or don't?

    I'm horrible at making decisions... Haaa

    I tried just the rear Neuspeed bar and felt it was too much bar for the street on Mpss tires. Might work on the track with sticky tires and someone wanting more rear rotation...but tends to cause mid-corner push on higher speed corners.

    I think a 25mm bar front bar would be a decent upgrade (24mm stock to 25mm). The rear is borderline for street use, IMO, might work on track.

    Id recommend the Whiteline frt/rr setup for track use...a little more adjustability on the front bar.....but they are in the sweet spot for most users.

    The Neuspeed says 25mm front bar but the ratings are (45, 63%) which means it is equivalent to a 26mm, 27mm bar. If I recall correctly the WL front bar is ~ equivalent to 25mm, 26mm, 27mm sizing even though it is listed as a 26mm. Cant use just bar dia bc the mat'ls thickness and design affect actual.rating. other mfr may use hollow vs solid bars so their effective ratings are very different for a given bar dia.
