My car came with the sports kit that supposedly includes sport suspension and 17in rims. How good is that sports suspension? And if I wanted to lower it, is the suspension tunable or do I have to get separate lowering springs? I am looking for an aggresive lowering job, but not to the point where i'm scraping every little bump in the road. In other words, I want it to be noticeable.

whats your price limit? if you got around $1500-$2000 then you could get a set of coilovers which allows you to adjust the ride height, and with the right dampers you could also adjust how firm or soft the ride is. although you could just buy some lowering springs for around 3-400. check out shox.com for the springs or check out bilsteins website (or ground control) for coilovers.

I just posted this as a reply to another thread so I copied and pasted it 4 u here:
H&R springs would be a mistake if you wanted to do a simple drop. With H&R's you have to buy shocks to support them because the stock shocks won't last long at all.
If you wanted to drop your car for looks only and still miantain the current feel of your car, go with UUC V2 springs. They're fantastic and I highly recomend them. I've had them for 5 months and love em'. My car also handles a bit better since it's lower.
If you wanted to drop your car for looks but also have the ability to track your car and adjust the height al leasure then go with PSS9's!! They rock!

Did you know that B+G suspension makes the springs for UUC. The springs can be had for $100 less than UUC's price.
