Glad to see that you have a realistic view of the world.
One more suggestion: don't go nuts with the swaybar and buy the biggest one you can afford. I found that was detrimental to handling and the car is much more predictable now that I dialed it back.

noted, I actually have no plans for any swaybars due to budget right now.
