Sell you XI and get an I. But in all seriousness, I think you might have luck with KW's. If you want to save money, og for ST's but I'm not sure if they have XI applications.

They only make the v1's and v3's for the xi. St or BC do not make applications for the xi version. H&R coilovers are also an option for the xi

I too am looking for a set of coils that will allow me to go the lowest on my xi. I plan on running air cups up front since Vermont roads are horrible but they add a good amount of height to the strut. I need something that can be threaded down to a pretty much un-drivable height. I highly doubt the V3s will be enough (maybe if I remove helpers) so if anyone else has opinions I would like to know as well. I'll look into h&r

I've seen this setup and its low! Coilovers at least lets you set it up where you cna adjust it higher for the winter months. I have H&R sport and been a happy user for 4-5 years. Im on stock everything with the springs and they are awesome. I barely drive my car though.
