I used 2010 ms3 springs they were takeoffs I believe at 6000 miles. The rear swap right in and you have to cut 1 full coil from the front.

Here is torquerules thread I used as my guide.

you can get opti-coat 2.0 for around $60-65. i actually used 22ple on some panels as a guinea pig since the stuff is brand new on the market and wanted to compare it. my friend is a detailer so i didn't really pay ;) but preparation is key since it is oil-based sealant. it should also last 18 months too. took 5 days to cure and it looks like glass now.
