Honda factory performance suspension???

Hello, In mid May i'm going to purchase a 05 Accord V6 coupe. I was wondering if the Honda Factory Performance Suspesion is really worth it? How much does it imporve handleing and is the car any quicker due to the lower center of gravity? Thank you for any help!

Jeff

i have hfp suspension and it lowers the car by about 1 inch. u can corner faster and wont scrape because the drop is not that dramatic. it still gives that car the a sagging look because its an even drop all around. its def not worth it if ur buying from the dealership because theyre going to want $800 for it and for that price u can get tein ss coilovers instead. hte reason i got the hfp was because i was a cheapo and didnt wanna spend too much money on suspension. it cost me around $450shipped i think

it may increase the car by a bit but u wont be able to feel the diff

on the plus side: it won't void your warranty if you have it installed by Honda.
That's about the only good reason for it though.

I'm VERY interested in purchasing your HFP suspension. Is it still available? I'd like to see pics if possible. Please send to [email protected].

Also, would you be willing to take $350 shipped to Louisiana 70818? I know I can get these for $481 shipped from HandA.... I'm still debating between HFP and Tein H-techs with some aftermarket shocks (haven't decided which yet).

BTW, I tried to PM you but your mailbox is full
