I had my KW springs fitted 2 weeks ago by Lohen. Thanks to Nick and Andrey. I highly recommend these guys and the KW springs, it's no hasher ride, better handling and totally transformed the looks. I also managed to have a go in Nick's car comparing my springs to his Eibach coilovers and they are nowhere near as good as his! Those coilovers are simply amazing but shame it's too much money for me Anyway I'm really happy with my springs because it's good value mod.
Great looking car, you've got that just about right, so sweet!
I'm interested to read about the springs, coz normally you just read (especially on here) about Eibachs being the best, so it's nice to hear of alternatives, especially when you say the ride is no harsher...
What tyres are you running? And did you have runflats before? How much do your springs lower the car by?
I'm running Toyo T1-S 215/40/17 and I never had runflats before so I can't compare the two. The KW's drop the car by 35mm whereas the Eibach's springs only drop 30mm. I can feel the rear of the car is much harsher than the front through the bumps, it was like this before I changed the springs so I guess it must be due to the low profile tyres.
I've got KW springs with 205/40/17 tyres. I think the ride is a little harsher, but this is far out weighed by the way the car looks and handles . Some dips in the road can take you by surprise though.
Big speed bumps cause the front bumper to catch a little, but its only the lip under the bumper which you can't see that catches, it's made of really soft plastic which you can bend right back by pokinig it with your finger so I don't think it causes any damage.
