The ride is not noticeably firmer. At the same time I had the corner weights checked and factory setting checked. On rear was toeing in a little too much. The new springs resulted in much closer corner weighting, factory springs did not result in good corner weighting (Usually only adjustable from adjustable ride height platforms, so if they are out nothing you can do easily)

The front toe in is set to 2mm toe out (The car was strung by a race team that always do my suspension) Cambers checked and adjusted where possible

Overall the car is 100% better. No float at speed in all bar full soft, I found the original a little floaty and soft at speed.
Turn in is much sharper (Could be settings) steering more precise
Full stiff (EDC 2 lights) is not 'bouncy' any more and seems better matched to the springs

Body roll is now signifcantly reduced. I LOVE IT !!

Euro 18's are a little darker and have finer spokes with a more angular dish. Really not sure why !

It looks to have lowered the ride height by about 15mm, is that about right or is it lower still?

Another thing, how does the car cope with speed bumps, no touching I hope.
