I think it'd look sweet with the RS*R's, should provide a nice drop. Those rims are 15's?
I finally installed the TEIN's on my car, check my build thread for pictures on how it turned out, provided quite a bit of droppage on the 14's and theyre the same height 35mm (F) and 25mm (R) as the RS*R's (I think!) so I think they should be sweet!

For everyday use I would go the Autoexe as they are progressive and offer a much better ride than linear springs.
I have a set of Autoexes on my car (turned out to be 1.8 not the 2.0 springs as we thought) and enjoy the ride and handling.

Yeah, rims are currently 15" MS-01Rs + MS-03s...

Thought the Teins looked quite good - i had a moment of regret in selling them!

The RS*Rs (either normal or titanium) are:
F: 30-35mm, R: 20-25mm. Spring rates F: 2.50kgf/mm, R: 1.78kgf/mm

and the AutoExes are F/R: 30mm, spring rates: F: 2.4-2.9kgf/mm, R: 1.7-2.3kgf/mm

Good point about the progressives. Hmm...

Autoexes ride nicely over the small ish bumps.
Bit firm over the rough stuff... But that's expected.
Even with my 35series the exe springs do ride nice.
If its you mrs car.... And you don't want to die.... Just severely wounded....
Recommend autoexe.

She will secretly love them racing around carparks

I can guarantee it'll take 3 weeks for her to notice. LOL

And yeah, was thinking about the AutoExes on the way home. Think i'll go for them!

I like the ride in my car ATM with the autoexe springs and tokico blues.
It is smooth round town and stiffens up in the corners quite nicely.

They're actually not too bad! Not as grippy as the Bridgestone B5000i that were on there, and not as comfortable either. But then again, they're 165/50s with a hell of a lot of sidewall stretch!

And that's with a set of AutoExe springs in there too - you wouldn't think so to look at it.

it's funny but wrong.

I must say but I think you should have kept the door trims. colour coded it would of broken up the door. As unlike the Ba it's not a smooth panel that crease makes lit look like it needss something ?

BODYKIT - you know you want to!

but that dish it's so old school kool and just plain wrong.

glad I don't have that other wise I'd of buckled and scrapped the lot
