Im loving mine at the moment. Really sharpens the car up without making it harsh at all. It doesnt feel too much worse than standard on the speed bumps and big bumps. If you want practical performance i think you will find it hard to find better. If you can afford you might also want to put on some better shocks. Although i have seen the springs work just fine on standard shocks, they wont last more than a year or two before they are shot.

I was lucky enough to get some koni yellows second hand for £100. I didnt want to use the springs as they looked like cut standard springs. After comparing them the the standard springs i removed i can confirm they was cut springs. Bit of a weird combo but hey.

Eibach springs work fine with oem shocks long term - several on here have done it.
