And sorry Mlai, I know you have 550!, the rectangular shape is too much like L..460, lack personality
Glad you like it bro.

The 550 trapezoidal tips actually have quad inside.

That's ok. I am a sucker to that though. Haven't had a trapezoid exhaust car before and if I were to do it, will not be on a Japanese car

And the Lexus ones are not real quad inside

Yes it's 220Km/h, not 220mile/h
Not too anxious if drives at straight road
What is challenge is going slight bending, still keep that fast
My hands were full of sweat

I can tell you that with this spring installed, besides conering the stability is also improved a lot! It feels very calm even over 200 Km, perhaps because no floating any more
If there is enough road opened, I will try out how many will trigger the limiter intervenes!
My only gose up to 235km the other cars was getting away from me.
I need your car lol

Yep every time, you calling
The most scared point is at that speed when you passing uneven or deep-path-hole.
I suspected one or two wheels was takeoff for a while..

when doing that kind of speed you need more down force that why I put on 2 rear spoliers
I think it time for you to put some on so the car dose not lift and glue to the ground like my E60

Seriously, it was seldom to do that speed, isn't it?
I would save that sum to a sexy-sound exhaust, which will be heard more often

Nice, finally your set is arrived. Welcome to share your setting with us? I need stiffer than now, will adjust it v. soon.
Just took a short ride from Hunghom to Wanchai via the Eastern Tunnel after installing the KW coilovers today. Though it's a short ride, I could feel the differences from my previous Eibach spring. It's much more stable, yet comfortable, and highly connected to the road. Very much as described by IC and luigimaster before. The reduction in nose diving when braking is very noticeable, even on normal street driving environment.

Still need some more time to dig out more from this mod but I'm certain it worth the money I spent, even with the previous investment on the Eibach (BTW if any bro want to try the Eibach pls let me know).

Asiakid, you will love it.

The height is adjustable so it depends on your own preference. I want it similar to Eibach so I have it slightly higher for now to reserve some space for it to settle in a week or so.

Try driving on some winding road at night and see if there is more under-steering or not,
