How would the result actually get measure and quantified for analysis and representation?Anyone actually tried an emergency lane change after going from a 16 mm to 19 mm rear bar on a fourth generation?

Measure lateral G, Steering angle, and , if you can afford it, rotational velocity via a gyroscope. Plot the rate of steering angle change against the rate of lateral g change.
You can also measure the suspension motion ( gets a little tricky setting that up on struts) and plot the rate of roll against the steering rate and lat g's rate as well.
I promise I will do this to the best of my ability as soon as I figure out how to turn off my TPMS light.OK.
Simplest thing to do, assuming that you can find a place big enough to be a skid pad of at least 75-100 foot radius, will be to chalk a circle that you can try to make your front wheels follow. Set up a camera on the car somehow - maybe a long stick - that can record both front and rear tires at the same time ( or 2 cameras that you can time-link together) and drive around the circle at ever increasing speeds until you get to what you feel is the limit - it is only when you find the limit that your tires will be acting on the load/slip angle curve about the same as if you were doing an emergency maneuver.
Note the speed.
Switch to the larger bar and repeat.
The larger bar runs should show a greater speed - it may be only 2-3 mph faster, so you need to be as precise in your reading as you can - as well as the rear tires following the circle line closer to what the front tires are doing.
This steady state test is by far the easiest to perform to see how the balance of the car has changed. It WILL NOT tell you anything about a change in dynamic behavior.
If you want to see how the dynamic behavior changed, probably a simple traffic cone slalom will suffice. Start off with the cones maybe 50-75 feet apart, and increase, decrease until you are comfortable that you can drive it consistently. You need only 4 cones to give you good feedback.
Run first with the small bar. Record how the car responds with a camera set up to record the full run from directly behind. Record your speed.
Repeat with the larger bar.
wire cutters. to the gauge cluster, and center stack screen, = no more offending notifications.I promise I will do this to the best of my ability as soon as I figure out how to turn off my TPMS light.
As stated in the my quarantined thread I would happily do that except the center info screen still displays an error message as well.Have you tried just simply removing the damned bulb?
Works every time!
