It's rare to find one with the X51 Powerkit option installed

Better not to say to loud that when I found the car I had no clue of what "X51" was.

I've chosen this just because, compared to other I had seen with similar specs, mileage and price, it had a nicer carbon air-filter box :lol:

I am a beginner as well, so feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

From outside, if it's a manual transmission C2S you can see it from the middle radiator in the front.

In the engine bay it's easy. The carbon airbox is easy to be identified.

From inside, by the grin of the driver.

Could some elaborate a little on the P17 Sports Suspension that Ale_72 mentions in the list of options his car came with please? I tried a search but nothing related came up.

Cannot tell you much more than this (various copy/paste).

I hope this is what you were looking for.

Suspension struts (front axle)

The spring strut consists of a double-tube gas-filled shock absorber and a conical spring which in turn is adapted to the different vehicle variants.

  • PASM chassis Spring rate: 33 N/mm
  • Sports chassis (-20 mm) Spring rate: 36 N/mm

The springs have a colour coding which indicates the spring tolerance and/or the chassis version.

Suspension strut (rear axle)

The suspension strut consists of a single-tube gas-filled shock absorber and a coil spring which in turn is adapted to the different vehicle variants.

  • PASM chassis Spring rate: 56 N/mm
  • Sports chassis (-20 mm), spring rate: progressive 60/90 N/mm

The springs have a colour coding which indicates the spring tolerance and/or the chassis version.

A single-tube aluminium shock absorber is fitted in order to reduce weight.

The main way in which tyre comfort has been improved is through the use of new support bearings with optimised shock absorption characteristics.

In accordance to the versions, the support bearings (three variants) and the lower spring retainer are manufactured in different versions.


The stabilisers’ setup in diameter and strength is designed to match the vehicle’s weight and driving dynamics.

  • PASM chassis Tube 19.6 x 2.6 mm
  • Sports chassis (-20 mm) Tube 19.6 x 2.6 mm

The relocation of the stabiliser attachment points from the suspension strut to the wheel carrier has increased the transmission ratio of the stabiliser.

The stabiliser responds more directly as a result, which more effectively reduces the tendency of the vehicle to tilt when cornering.

Sportiness and PASM

The chassis approximates the sportiness of the sports chassis when regulative interventions are made with active PASM

Mechanical rear differential lock

Only available with the sport chassis option.
