Thanks for the write up, by the way the car looks great. I've been considering H&R springs and you made this decision a little easier.

However the car is handling very well as it is at the moment and I may raise and not like the results !

IWC,

If you're looking to raising the front by 5MM's or so, wouldn't the Eibachs or AC springs be a better fit? I think that's right around the front height you're looking for.

You mentioned the H&R's made the car a bit front biased. Still feeling the same way?

To the best of my knowledge, the rear drop is the same across all the major springs.
