I'm in no way being a jerk, or not trying to in any way. But "go big or go home." You wouldn't have decided on D2. Kw is arguably the greatest coilover company around.

To each their own, but on this specific model, i believe that d2 had better options/price than KW. Dont get me wrong KW is excellent, my dad has them on his 2003 996 turbo. And there really isnt that big of a price/quality gap between d2 and KW.

Kw v3's wouldve been a great choice....if I was a professional autocrosser LOL!!

What i meant by "going big" was getting a pair of coilovers in general, opposed to cutting your springs.

Did I go big or should I go home? This is nearly full up in the rear.

I bought my H&R coilovers from FSwerks over a month ago now, just waiting for some better weather and this damn snow to stop so I can put them on

Definitely V-Maxx; nothing that was actually designed for the Mk3 goes this low.
