      Me too - it paints my DV a nice shade of brown



      So I told my friend that painted the bumpers that the car is brilliant black. My car isn't, it's raven black- I didn't find the sticker till after they were done. Opps

      Do I care? A little, but not really. You can tell when using a flash or in very bright light. Spoke with him and he's just going to spray the whole car for me in the future. For now it's nice to have a shaved front bumper.

      sticker in manual:



      Can't tell in low lighting:



      Huge paperweight off the rear:



      At night using a flash is bad news:

      It will be much more street-able than the H&R RSS's I had. I had a really hard time letting go of them as I know I will never find a better handling suspension for this car. Unfortunately my commute to work is pretty much driving 10 miles down a road full of what could be called speed bumps and my car/body is not handling it well. When James visited he followed in a much softer suspension car and I think they had a hard time with it!

      More go fast parts on the way too though

      This will be my 4th

      HPA SHS - super soft
      H&R Streets - perfect, had miles on them so sold them
      H&R RSS - can't beat them on a track, bad for NY daily driving
      KW V3's - results in a few weeks time

      So are the RSS's available? The KW's aren't "stiff" enough for me, but should be better on the rough streets.

      They are on John's car now, John was looking for stiffer with the better roads in his area, while Doug was looking for more comfort. Swap made in heaven!

      In a couple of weeks when I have the car back on the road I'll definitely post a review. Do some back to back seat time in Max's car vs my car maybe.

      I thought the H&R SS's were kind of their comfort line of coilover that used a twin tube strut design?

      I had the V3's, they did give me the feeling that there could have been some improvement if they were a bit stiffer which is why I traded with Doug. I put H&R Front and Rear Sways on with the V3's and it helped significantly stiffen them up. Car felt pretty awesome, helped reduce body roll significantly, made them into much more of a performer. The V3's can also be improved by ditching the rear progressive spring for a linear version.

      Now that I have the RSS's I switched back to factory sways and the car is definitely much harsher, car sticks to the ground better but I do feel everything, and feel it HARD. The V3's are a great daily driven coilover that is performance oriented, with sway bars it makes it a very solid competitor to the RSS, however nothing really touches the control you have with the RSS's, but you sacrifice a LOT of ride quality to achieve this.

      PS- Still have that bumper if you need it!

      Swap was made in heaven! I miss the V3's aspect of comfort, however the roads around me make it not to bad. As Doug has harsher roads he can also adjust the coilovers for much more comfort for his weekly commutes, then adjust the rebound and dampening for track weekends etc. The V3's can be used well in many different scenarios. Its not dedicated full race all the time.
