I'm thinking of switching from HFP to H-Tech's, and also gonna get the OEM Kit as well...

Did you get your exhaust extended?

That is so hot-looking man!! FYI, those H.Techs will settle a bit, so it'll look even better in a few weeks.

The S-Techs lower the car more, the exact specs have escaped my mind at this time, but if you search, you'll find it.

Personally, I know why I chose H-Tech's over S-Tech's, because I am looking for a nice, not too extreme, subtle drop that gets rid of the huge front gap.

With the S-Techs, I'd have to be VERY cautious all the time everytime I drive, much more than I would with the H-Techs, but of course I will still scrape sometimes with H-Techs.

Also, H-Techs can be installed and used with your stock shocks, with the S-techs, it's most likely a good idea to get new shocks because of the more extreme drop.

Hope that helps, feel free to add anything I missed.

havent yet but i havent had the setup on for a week yet so i have to wait and find out. I didnt go with s-tech b/c of the condition of roads we have in southern louisiana. Ask anyone who is from here or has been down here, some of the worst roads in the country. I love taking my car on vacations when i can enjoy the road instead of constantly slowing down and swerving around huge potholes or cracks in the street. Plus my driveway is steep to prevent flooding and i dont want it to take forever for me to get up it without scraping.

are h-tech's and s-tech's just springs? you guys running stock shocks?

i'm planning on an 05 coupe in black with oem kit. that doesn't look low enough for me.

right now i'm thinking neuspeed race + koni yellows..and i have a feeling it will be SLAMMED. i'm trying to achieve about a 1 finger gap all around. or no gap in front, 1 finger in back.
