    Overall, I am very impressed with the ride. The combination feels fantastic and the car is quite solid but also quite fine for daily driving as it is by no means bone jarring.

    I'm not sure as to how they would compare with Koni SA's but for me, the combination seems great for street and mountain driving and possibly the occaisional track session - also the suspension techniques swaybars help the roll to be reduced immensely as well.

    I hope this was helpful and feel free to ask me any more questions that you may have,

    Pete

    I love my sports, i'm adjustability of the SAs is fun, I can vouch for that. Not worth the extra cost to me though.

    the H&Rs have a slight rake to them, right? it appears that way in some pics. Especially in PeaveyBassist's pics.

    From what I understand they are definately H&R Sports, I had another side on look at the car just a few hours ago and it already looks lower. I think it will be better after a week or so.

    Yeah those pics were taken literally two or three days afterwards though. I am hoping it will still settle some more,

    Thanks for all of the kind words guys, the car is slowly-slowly coming together and getting closer to just how I like it.

    As for the wheels, I was thinking of looking for some Euro 15" weaves or something similar such as Ronals so that I can put some wider and better rubber onto them. And yes, the antenna will be fixed soon. It does go all the way down, it's just struggles sometimes and will be dealt with very soon.

    Anyway, I appreciate your thoughts guys, any other ideas or opinions are more than welcome! :D

    Don't rattle can the wheels on that car. If you do, don't mount them. Stick with factory painted wheels on that glorious blue. Sick 318is Pete 8)

    Yes.

    But too high! But thats my taste. As for the weaves, just paint them gunmetal centers with Duplicolor wheel paint. It would really set off the car.
    And fix the antenna while you're at it. ;)
