I want to keep it suttle too.
Hey thanks! The interior wrap was not that difficult at all. But the wrap doesn't last long to wear. I have since replaced it, and will probably replace it again this summer with new trim. haha.

Can you do me a favor and edit your post to delete all the pictures from my first post? Thanks.

Any idea of how much sooner the shocks will go out with the lower spring?

The koni yellows are built to handle lowering springs. So they will not wear prematurely with springs compared with your stock shocks.

Thanks for the info. I'm looking at replacing my suspension. I'm debating over ST coilovers Or Koni yellows with HR racer.

How's the ride feel? I'm trying to keep things as comfy as possible. Your lowering looks good, any rubbing?

Well currently I am riding on just the Koni yellows and stock springs. Today a package arrived with the rest of my suspension parts (strut mounts, pads, reinfocement plates, etc). My springs are coming in tuesday. Decided to go with sportline because they are not quite as low as H&R race and are a lot more comfortable i've heard. I'll write a review as soon as I have them on.

ST coilovers are nice, but the only issue I have with those is you cannnot adjust dampening (I believe). The Koni's are adjustable. I found my Koni's for an AMAZING price which is why I went with them instead of a coilover kit.

I did notice you can't adjust the dampening. Are you planning on doing a video?

Your car looks pretty low for stock springs. That's all on just the Koni adjustments?
