Not really. I'm at about 1500 miles & in general it's ok. On hitting a good bump it will rebound a time or two more than I like--and I know the solution to that & have it in the mod plans.

Re: brembo brake package seems bouncy

I completely agree with your assessment -- the 'bouncy' nature of the suspension on Brembo cars was especially noticeable for me at freeway speeds.

An upgrade to a quality aftermarket set of dampers (I chose to go with Koni Sports, but Koni STR.Ts are also good if you don't need or want the adjustability) will take care of that -- I gained quite a bit of confidence in the car at high speeds after completing that upgrade. Pair the new dampers with a quality set of springs (I have Eibach Pro-kits but the Steeda Sports are also very popular), and I predict you'll be much happier with the "bounce" factor.

No, and no. Only way to fix it is new struts (and you might as well do springs at the same time).
