I went with ACS and so far it's been great; it's been about 3 years since I installed them. The drop was moderate and the handling is exponentially better than stock. I would have gone coils if I drove my car more, but it's typically just a wknd ride.

I'm on H&R Sports.

The drop is very even and clean without being slammed. The ride is stiffer than stock but to me it feels like how an M-sport car should have been from the factory. Sporty and quick reacting but still very comfortable. PS- It's my daily driver and I'm using the original dynamic struts with 113k miles on them with no problem

I have the same HR Sport springs. They offer good balance between usability for a daily driver and looks. If you are taking your car to a car wash, this is the lowest you can go, any lower and you would not be able to go to car wash, if you have front lip, you would be scraping it all the time... I like stiffer ride on these springs and I agree that is how the car should have come from the factory

ACS will be your mild drop and H&R will be your more aggressive drop. just to make a note since it's been noted here but sometimes if you go with a lowering spring replacement there's been quite a few members who have reported their shocks leaking from immediately after install, 2 weeks, 1 month, 1 year and some reported not having any issues. just an FYI. Don't believe me do some searching and you find them. BTW, you should post this in the correct section...GL!

Wondering if you decided anything about the springs yet? I'm planning to do the same and thinking of getting a set of ACS. The drop seem to be pretty good for my taste and the comfort close to the stock from what I've heard?!?
