Wouldn't say it's sweeter. It's just real sugar vs. HFCS. Tastes better and doesn't have a syrupy feel.

Hmm, I guess so. Hard to find soda in the US made with real sugar anymore unless it's labeled gourmet or retro.

Are you looking for a sportier feel? Slight lowering? What's the goal?

well with all my other cars i just did springs. days later it turned into coilovers. lol.

i hated the float/bounce feel. and being in our area how loud is it over bad roads.

oh and i need to know if my driveways in my area are friendly too. not looking for them to scrape their own lip or whatnot just want to see how close it comes.

oh and i want to know how it feels with the edc.

Personally, I thought the Eibachs rode great for about 2 days. Then, I noticed that on certain bumps, it felt like the car couldn't quite gather itself up after the bump, there was clearly not enough rebound damping.

I think that the issue is how much the Eibachs tended to use the stock bump stop. I felt like at least twice a day I'd hit a medium sized bump and the car would just rebound out of control after it, giving it a fairly unsettled feeling.

Dinan is very careful with their suspension not to run out of travel and I much preferred the ride, although it was not low enough for me.

I'm the same way, i've done springs and shocks and every time I end up ripping them out for coilovers. (E36 M3, S2000 #3, E46 M3, M Z4, S2000 #4, 335i #1, S2000 #5, Evo, etc) the E90 M3 is the only car I've stayed with just springs (And they were the Dinan setup)
