Put the Koni's on this weekend. Wow! What a difference. This is the handling I've been looking for.

The "mello yellow" of the Koni/Tein combo can not be seen.

Drop is probably a couple of inches, but is adjustable with the Koni's. Ride "comfort" is compromised by "sport", in other words, the ride is much firmer now, but that's what I wanted; there is no "bounce" like there was with the Tein/stock combo.

My buddy owns a shop, so install was $100.

It took about 2 1/2 hours. Prices I got around here were 250-280. I thought it was a pretty good deal.

$100 is a great price! I paid $500 to get mine installed!!!! But it included a 4-wheel alignment. I feel like I got ripped off but it was my fault for not checking around.

Noobie question, but was is the difference between the Koni Yellows that you got and the Neuspeed/Konis? I know the part # for the Neuspeed/Konis are

8041.1322LSP3
8041.1322RSP3
8041.1329SP3

Just wondering if what you bought on eBay for $558 shipped is the same that seller asw88 is selling for $576.99 shipped......

Thanks,
Amanda
