    Koni FSD's they are fantastic super smooth ride good bump swallowing and you can reduce the hieght by 25mm maybe not enough but the ride is worth that little extra hieght and cheaper and better than coilovers so much so that Koni are at present encorparating this into the new v top end coilovers for about two years time

    you've seen mine right tom? that's lowered on fk 60/40 springs and koni dampers

    might be roughly what you're looking for? ride is perfectly fine...

    when i have the cash i eventually want to get kw coilovers though
