My two cents.

If you prefer a bit more on comfort than performance, go for SACHS. My wife and kids never complaint about the ride quality.

I need to strike the right balance bt comfort and performance - I do not want to lower the car too much and affect the ride plus HK got too many pot holes and speed ramps for my liking.

I think on average the above kits should lower about 30mm so I need to know whether this is amicable to HK conditions but provide a good level of performance. Also, I was told that the SACHS kit may be a bit soft, has anyone got experience on the suspension above and can share their experience?

Most grateful for your input.
