Re: Pics with heico volutions and heico sport drop (SwedeDriven)

It looks good. How much is the drop and were the springs a straight swapout for the one that came with the 4C?<p>How different is the handling and ride?

Re: Pics with heico volutions and heico sport drop (napster)

Thanks!! it dropped it about 1.3" but my tech said give it a couple weeks and it'll settle down a little bit more. so hopefully it'll be about a 2 inch drop. Yea the springs were swapped out from the stock springs. well it's a lot stiffer as far as driving but thats a given and i actually wanted it that way. Corning doesnt feel as "floaty" as it did before and since i got 19"s there's no rub. I LOVE IT i'll suggest it to anyone <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

What was the final drop in height. Also, did you have to re-aim the HID's.

My friend is a salesman at volvo so he used his discount for me. I can probably tell you there isnt going to be a huge difference between the springs. They'll lower your car about the same amount.<p>If you were wanting to go cheaper H&R springs makes it for our car as well. Except for my v8 because of the AWD. They make if for the other models.<p>The ride is a lot more stiff which is a given when you lower any car. I ride in advance all the time so its EXTRA STIFF.. ADVANCE ALL THE WAY RIGHT VIVEK??? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

I believe I had a sighting on this exact car last Saturday, parked at the 35th Ave in West Seattle. It was around noon.<p>Man this car looks so awesome in real life <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
