I've got a 2006 with H&R Coilovers. The ride is much better, it understeers far less when pushed hard in the turns; and it's far more stable, especially over 100mph. I'd highly recommend them. The ride height is also adjustable, and when properly set up, it sits at a height that makes it look far better than stock. Don't lower it for looks, by any means; but the way it looks is definitely an added bonus.

I've got the Koni Sport Kit setup and installed by StaSis Engineering and an H&R rear sway bar. I'm very happy with the handling 8)

ya im not much into doing stuff for looks. im more worried about handling. I was lookin into the Bilsteins as well as the H&Rs. Anyone think the bilsteins are worth the extra cash?
