I have the Eibach Sportline Springs on my 2003 ZTS, Looks tight, makes the car ride even better than before. Make sure to get the Eibach Pro Dampers for an even better stiffer ride.

Is it true the eibach sportlines are progressive and the prokit are linear? Or are they both progressive? Thanks!

I am not sure on that, but the sportline has an extra .5 inch drop on the car, in front your car will be dropped 2.2 and your rear will drop 2.0. It is a nice ride none the less when I get pictures I will make sure to post.

I have a 2k SE. I had G2 springs from Germany on her for about 1.5 years. Lowered 2" after settling. Loved them, but wanted more. Went with the full SVT suspension package and am even happier. Coupled the suspension upgrade with urethane bushings from New Edge Performance and firmed things up.

I have 1,6 liter Euro Sedan and I have put the Performance Kit from Sachs. I can say that is really good and not too hard for me. The loss in comfort is just a bit. The car dropped about 3cm front and rear.

Here is a picture with before...
