H&R's? I'm happy with them. They do ride quite stiff, though that might have something to do with the fact that I have them set on ALL THE LOW. I might raise the car eventually, but for right now I kinda like it. Combined with the Hotchkis sways, there's pretty much no body roll to be found. I thought my wifes' Cooper S cornered flat.... the ms3 dominates it now. I originally wanted KW's but the entry price was entirely too steep with a mini-me around, and the fact that I bought the dirtbag mx6 and am going to use that as a race car pretty much negated the need for anything that serious in the ms3. Out of all the other "budget" options, the H&R's seemed to be the best value, got the best reviews, and made the most sporting pretenses.
