Megan euro-street coilovers. Who is running them and some feedback plz.

Looking for a drop.

I originally wanted to get a H&R springs but now I'm looking at Megan and KW v2. Who is currently running the Megan set? Feedback plz!

Thanks

Thanks the IS was a fun car.

As slammed as i am the car still rides well. There is a lot of room for adjustment. I can raise the car ab 2" or so and drop it another 1" if i wanted to. I think they may be a good option for you b/c you can set the ride height for your preference

was adjusting the ride height easy? I'm assuming you'll need to take the wheels out, jack the car up and adjust, right?

Your car looks great, btw!

I didn't even think about that but I just picked up H&R springs from tirerack yesterday. lets see how they sit and ride. i'll eventually jump to coil overs if h&r gives me any issues.

I actually don't have to take the wheels off to adjust me KWV3 coilovers, just turn the front wheels and jack up. But it will be easier to adjust though with the wheels off.

I'm considering KW as well. So you could adjust without the wheels off, is it because it's V3? What about for V1? Would that be the same?
