i dont persoanlly have it, but a few of my friends do, and im thinking about getting it. From the few times i have driven there car i think its a very good setup for a mix of daily driving and tracking. i would tell anyone to get it, there are other options but it is for sure a great option

I've installed and dealt with a few differernt brands of this such type suspension set up... from those past tasks... I've come to find that you can do much better with a different set up.. and so have my friends who have gone this path...

This set up is a good starter for someone who wants good parts.. but doesnt exactly want to pay full price for them... a traditional set up... and I speak of just plainly a shock/strut and springs.. will run you about 900 dollars for the same type build and level of parts... Meaning your buying H&R.. which is a great company .. one which I use on my own car to speak of...

Another view.. if you use your car mainly on the street... and venture to the track every once in a while.. no more than maybe twice a year.. this is a good way to go... they provide improved handeling.. but nothing of a notable upgrade.

A traditonal set up will upgrade your perofrmance probably a little less than half as much as a cup kit... but like I've ventured to say earlier... its all about how you drive your car... with a traditional set up.. you are allowed more room to drive more on the track without the parts failing and becoming more and more week faster.

I have the coilover kit on my car now.. its much much more easy to tune... and play around with... and is a very easy fix to help the longevity of the spring, when you can change from street to track set ups.. . after you've tuned it up for both.

I havnt said this before.. but its all about feel... these cars were made to let you feel the ground as you drive... or atleast thats the way I look at it... I feel more with a traditional set up.. and a coilover set up lowered.. than I have ever felt with a stock or cup kit... I've never owned the cup kit... but I'd driven a similar set up car as mine with it on there... and it doesnt have as much play as a stock set up... but it still doesnt allow you to feel the ground.

All of this is my own opinion from my past.. nothing more... hope it helps..

Les

i have the cup kit and i l;ove it.... it is a little rougher ride, but the lower stance and the improved handleing is well worth it. And for $600.... how could you go worng for a full suspension

Unless you're gonna be tracking often, H&R+Konies are a great street setup.
