Thats a pretty cool write up, makes me even more interested in a set of FSDs. Thanks for posting!

I have had the FSD's on my last two cars. They do give you a more planted feeling cornering, especially when it is a rough or bumpy surface.

skimmed thru that link and it looks like the subject car is BMW.
As in my original post "Granted this isn't our car, but I am sure the effect would be the same."

Well I am set on the Sport Suspension. I think the times at the track would have been better on the full stiff setting. Screw comfort, I want performance.

Can you provide some details on your certainty that the effect would be the same?

Thanks in advance.

They work with both. The Koni FSD kit was designed to give better handling with a near stock ride height. They also work with lowering springs in the 1"-1.5" drop range. Koni recommends going with Eibach springs as evidence they have FSD+Eibach packages. Note for our cars the Eibach is a 30mm springs which is approx. 1" drop.

Nice. THanks for the link. Exactly what I'm looking for. More input from others, the better...

.."I have put up with the crash, bang etc of my suspension for the last two years and 30k miles.."

"They’ve now been on the car a week and my 56 mile journey to work is a great test track of conditions and to put it simply: I’m impressed. As they say, “It does exactly what it says on the tin.” When cornering or braking hard I sense no real difference to the sports set up and there is still very little roll or dive. The difference is on bumpy uneven roads, as the car now seems to tip-toe through the bumps like an elephant with slippers on. Don’t get me wrong it’s still firm with 17” wheels and stiff springs, but there is no more being lifted in the air by bumps or crashing into potholes like before. It genuinely does seem to drive like a Morris Marina over the bumps and then like a, well a Saab 9-3 with sports suspension round the corners. Marvelous."
