My Ride: Knows Dubstep SUCKS
I have what may be a dumb question

I am looking to buy an H&R Cup Kit very soon, and just wanted to know:

Since I have a ZHP, I was reading that the Touring Cup Kit lowers the car an additional .75 in the front and .25 in the rear. Will this bring the total lowered height to that of the Sport Cup Kit on non-sport suspension?

Dont mean to thread jack, just need to be sure before I drop it.

The numbers on H&R's site are a little optimistic, but yes, that's how much lower the suspension should bring your car from where it stands. You have to look at their chart to determine how much it'll drop your specific application.

I have checked the site, but dont understand the following:

If I put a touring cup kit on my ZHP, will it bring the total lower height to that of a non-sport suspension 3-series with the sport cup kit?

Full H&R setup.... Cupkit, Sways, and a few Turner Motorsport suspension bits













The Cupkit by itself road a bit stiffer than the factory sport package, the sway bars flattened it out in the corners, but made the ride a little stiffer, the Turner stuff made the ride even stiffer, & my sticky tires have lots of road noise.

But it sticks to the road like glue!!!

The Touring is a Touring no matter what car you put it on. The end result will look the same on all applications regardless of what you have now.

i just had the sport CK installed (race springs) and the ride is awesome. i came off a 100k mile factory sport suspension on 17" M wheels. if you're driving on good roads, it's absolutely perfect for daily driving as it gives you amazing road feel and control without sacrificing a lot of comfort. i was worried about bouncing around like a honda but there is no such thing. it's controlled and smooth. you still feel bumps but not so much to annoy you. i drove on a very short rough driveway (slowly) last night and that was **** though. GET IT!

Bump, lets see some more cars with the Touring kit. Specifically facelift sedans, preferably with 17s.
