Hey so I am not really someone who gets out the track a whole lot myself, but I'd like to. I bought some DIRT cheap coilovers off ebay from FK Streetline with adjustable dampening for $396 about a year ago. Honestly the suspension was a great value and upgrade over blown OEM sport suspension. I can see myself one day definitely upgrading to something better like a KW V1, but for now these work great. The coils are pretty comfortable on the lowest shock setting and they do noticeable stiffen when you crank it up. I used new lemforder mounts and the OEM reinforcement plates all around when I put the suspension on. If I had to do it over I would have probably got some camber plates because the alignment shop couldn't get -2.5 degrees in the front. I'm sure the car would be great in AutoX, I'm not going to say that body roll decreased dramatically, but the car feels sure footed and sharp.
