Your going to get alot of crap about putting HID's in the headlight housings, but some people have put eibach springs on and they look good.

H&R make a sweet spring kit, I just bought them instead of the Eibach's that I initially wanted. I haven't put them on yet, trying to wait til I have some free time

When you do put them on can you take pictures along the way, and before and after shots. I am debating on which springs to get.

My brother is getting HIRs for his Mitsubishi Outlander. I'll let you guys know how they work out. They're about 75% as bright as HIDs, 2300 lumens for HIRS vs. 3000 lumens for 4300k HIDs vs. 1000 lumens for standard 9006 halogen bulbs, but since they're halogen lights, they won't change the beam pattern so it won't blind oncoming drivers.

HIR = Halogen Infrared Reflecting. The technology apparently converts waste infrared light into useful light.

Lowering springs don't require shocks, but your stock ones will generally wear out quicker. On every car or truck I've ever had and put lowering components on it, I've always replaced the shocks with something better and made to handle the the decreased travel.

depending on what your budget is can decide what you want. Also what kind of ride quality you desire depends too. There are a lot of options in the suspension arena for this car. If you don't car about money or ride quality then some nice coil-overs are teh low to go. If that's too much then I heard a great setup is the H&R springs with konis. Still too much? Get the Eibach pro kit suspension kit. Want the cheapest low? FRPP kit. That comes with springs and dampers for 200-300 bucks depending on who you get them from. There's also the svt kit which doesn't lower too much but is probably the cheapest way to go.
