Anyone have any driving impressions of the swift spec r

I'm assuming they came off back order and people have started to install them... I'm looking for impressions regarding both ride quality and performance. Any pics would be appreciated as well.

Literally just installed mine. Unfortunately all the alignment shops are already closed.

Anyhow, the ride comfort is awesome. Its very much stock like and the girlfriend didnt even complain. Ill comment on performance after the alignment.

girlfriends shouldn't be complaining in the first place if they are getting into an M3...

I would like to know if anybody has noticed handling improvements with these? After a proper alignment and with the stiffer spring rates I would assume the car should respond a bit better during transitions and hard cornering vs OEM.

I finished installing mine earlier today, took a drive to verify everything and settle them in. The car's noticeably stiffer but still confortable. From doing a few sharp turns, there's much less roll, but hard to really say how much less on the street. Only have a few miles on them, so not much to say at this point, will hopefully get a track day soon as well. But I'll update as I drive on them more once I get my re-alignment next week.

Are you running camber plates? The camber on the front end looks more than stock. thx.

So far these swift spec-r springs are working as advertised. Super streetable, in fact, the car in some respects is even more comfortable than the stock ZCPs. Still have to take to the track to really see what they'll do, but so far - really content with the street performance.

No camber plates just springs and an alignment needed.
