I've only seen one person put the "I" race springs on the xi. Not enough for me to do it

I was in your same predicament, and picked up a set of slightly used custom BC racing coilovers, couldn't be an happier. I paid 800 with the extenders for the rear to adjust the dampers, camber plates etc. I couldn't be happier..great ride quality and go lower then I'd ever need them..and I like my cars LOW

I have kw v1 coils. They are not at the lowest setting which I think would be pretty slammed based on my ride height now.

I don't think you have any options other than getting coilovers if you want slammed on an xi

Could you post a pic? Also with the number of threads still available for you to spin down? I'm not sure if I'm going to go with v1's or h&r coils. Both are for the xi. H&r claim to drop an inch lower all around compared to the v1. But comfort is a necessity also

Can anyone provide some insight as to which will provide a more comfortable ride? The h&r coils or the v1's?

I have been in cars with both and they were very close. I went with H&R coils in the end and very happy with them. I really couldnt tell one over the other.

If you don't mind buying used look for a set used. I just got mine for $775 shipped and they were never driven in the snow and look brand new.







Now I just gotta find time to get them installed
