            Dap r springs are the best looking but can take a longgg time untill you get them I have the sportlines which is lower on the front but not so much on the back, so its a sort of nose down stance. Ride comfort is just the same as the standard springs the only difference is when you hit a bump you can feel it a little more thats all but you get that when you lower any car

            Front





            Rear

                theres millions of spring topics mate, best to do a search and decide for yourself.

                As you can see by the first three replys everyone will say different.

                              indeed. everyone will tend to say theirs is best.

                              you should ask what your after and what use the car will be used for. lots of miles so comfort? track and weekend? purely looks etc

                              not sure how thats relivant???? doesnt mean they are the best does it? - not knocking them before anyone misinterprets this

                              daps
                              eibachs - pro or sportline (even eibach rate the pros as best of the 2)
                              kw's
                              coilovers.

                              each tuner will have a diff opinion prob based on which they sell as you would imagine. try going out in members cars and see what you like.
