***UPDATED: New VMR V710's & H&R Coilovers for Xi

My H&R Coil Overs are finally here!
and they are looking awesome!

THANKS TO Bobby@BarvarianX for the Coilovers and the Complete Wheels!
and Tirecraft Calgary doing the install


stock:
h&r sport springs:
h&r coilovers:

I will be lowering the front a bit more once the snow is gone for the season!
and for XI drivers, this is one of two coilover options you have. The other being the KW V3's which is quite a bit more! Keep in mind you get what you pay for!

After driving on these for a while now they are great for my purposes.
The ride is a lot better than the stock setup and just having H&R sport springs.
With the stock setup it felt like the car was floating and had no feel of the road 3/10, but ride comfort was a 8/10
with the H&R sport with stock shocks the are was relatively stiff in the front and super bouncy in the rear was going over bumps and dips. The car felt like it was hoping sideways when going around a bumpy corner 5/10, ride was horrible after 25000-30000Km's with these 4/10.
With H&R Street Performance Coil Overs, the appearance with the suspension height set at the desired heights it was AWESOME and made the car look a lot better!!!. The coilovers were super good with handling as you feel the road more because it was a lot stiffer than both the stock and sport spring setups. When going around bumpy corners the coilovers absorb the bumps instead of hopping over them and making the car feel like its side-hopping. The coilovers also deal with dips a lot better because the rebound was super light and not harsh. The ride comfort is good for me. It is stiffer there for you feel a lot more bumps on the roads but way better going through dips and big bumps, handling/looks: 8/10 ride comfort: 8/10 you get what you pay for. which is height adjustability and stiffer ride with less harsher rebound.

so this is basically a teaser shot!! DAMNIT, let us know how they handle, fit, perform, etc. I'm debating between these and the KW V3's.

congrats

when getting coilovers for my porsche, a lot of people said stay away from H&R, as they are known to rust if driven in rainy/snowy conditions.

kw apparently do not.

what are these H&R made of?

the shocks are bilstein, I know b/c i had the same set and they are stamped 'bilstein'. My only gripe with the HR coilovers is that they are only height adjustable. Thats why Im waiting to get bilstein b8s so I can adjust the shocks, Im happy w/ my HR sport springs ride height

Congrats! Your car looks great!

I had one question... are you worried about salt and rust damage?

After having the coilovers for a while what are your overall driving impressions. How does it compare to the stock suspension? Any improvements in handling?
