    get an eibach sportline kit, lowers the car a good 30-40mm all round. but make sure u get a set of decent dampers, otherwise the ride is crap.

    the eibachs seem to be the springs to go for on the GSis, ive got a set on mine and they are good, quite a few have uprated dampers, but i havnt as yet and i think the ride is fine!

    I have got the sportlines on mine and i have to say that the car handles 10x better, and is alot more stable when breaking and looks the part.

    I have to say tho, its a bit of a bouncy ride, had the car bottom out a couple of times, so i will be going for some uprated dampers as well, i hear that the the Bilstines are the best option to go for with the eibach's
