I'm not in the faintest interested in driving like a yob, and being as low as it is the comfort to me, my wife and passengers is no different to stock if not better (probably due to non rft)
Either way I'd be up for comparing notes and meeting up
The Ohlins DFV is definitely a very road biased kit, especially with the standard spring rates, and really not expensive, mine were around £1500 inc
In comparison, the KW 2 way competition units I run on my sprint Evo were around £3.5k and even running much harder springs, they are still compliant on the road.
You find that high quality suspension is much, much more comfortable than cheap poor quality stuff even though the spring rates may be harder.
I personally think it's one of the most important components on the car, controlling grip, handling and comfort in equal amounts.
Would be good to meet up sometime, I'm only up the road!
