A gas strut kit to lift the trunk lid.

I found this product very easy to install. All parts were easily identified. Instructions were clear and easy to understand. You can vary the degree you want your trunk lid to open. I opted for it to open all the way up. If a girl can do this, anyone can.

I read reviews of other trunk lid lift kits and had second thoughts. I have a heavy spoiler on my car and needed something. The trunk is able to open all the way, no restrictions. Easy to close. Lid just opens slowly when you insert and turn the key. I would recommend this product for anyone looking for a trunk lid lift kit. Only cost about $35. Definitely worth every penny.

The rotors are made from high quality blanks (Brembos I believe) and are machined with tapered slots that do not compromise the strength of the rotor. They are then coated with a black CAD plating to prevent rust and give a unique styling appeal.

I love the look of these rotors. They have only been in place for 5 days, so I have not done any real threshold braking exercises with them in place, but I don't expect them to perform any differently than stock rotors in this regard. Where these rotors should be superior to standard rotors is when the pads get hot enough to begin 'gassing off'. Slotted rotors help to evacuate these gasses and prevent brake fade. Also, in wet conditions, momentary brake fade can be felt when you first apply the brakes. These slotted rotors work very well for dealing with wet conditions, and there is no momentary loss of braking from water between the pads and rotors. The look of these rotors is unique and unmatched. Roadster Performance is to be commended for being able to bring such a high quality product to market, and at such a good price! I am very happy with these rotors.
