Doyle, you are no doubt much more knowledgable than I am, but from what I've read most people prefer the ride of the V1 over a Blistien/ Eibach set up. My impression is the combination of comfort and handling is better with coils. The adjustment is a bonus, as with the springs they aren't lowering the vehicle much and the rake could be exacerbated, expecially on an xi.

Can you talk more to this? I'm not looking to slam the car and adjustment isn't critical, but comfort, tightened ride and lowering to around non-xi height is desired. Thanks for the input.
