Do a search, sniper has a set and another person just added. Good design, but some may not like due to the small drop. Also for the cost you can get a set of coilovers.

Then again, there are some that prefer it due to the small drop

Very subtle drop in the front. Dinan claims 1/2", I'm seeing a little less than that, but it's only been 250 miles (photo below).

I am very happy with the performance of Stage 1; it was part of the S Package installed by my dealer. The shocks and springs work perfectly together; body roll is reduced and stability is vastly improved. It is also super-tame for daily driving, not harsh at all. Exactly the combo I was looking for.

would a set of coilovers handle better than say stage 2 or 3 Dinan susp ?

Great looking e92 - one of the cleanest I've seen. Any updates on your impression about the Stage 1 now that you've got some more miles on it? Did you have the car prior to Stage 1, or did you have the dealer do it when you bought new?
