I am in the same boat as the op. Luckily i havent yet pulled the trigger on any springs/coilovers. I have seen NUMEROUS pics of HR sport springs have about an inch higher gap in the front and IMO it is disgusting looking.
I have still not been able to figure out if the Tein S springs will fit an XI coupe and ive been researching for a while now. If this cyber monday really offers huge discounts like that then i will grap some coilovers. When is that anyway?
