Didn't the GTS have some sort of supersport option as standard which was lower still?


The "PASM sports chassis (- 20 mm) with limited slip rear differential lock" was an option on the GTS.

Which makes it 10mm lower the standard PASM chassis then I think which is 10mm lower than standard. So the "sports" springs could be an option for us in warranty then.

Techart are fine for gen2 but make sure you get the ones for the Awd 4S as the rear springs are bigger the the ones for the 2S Thumb Targa option should be listed if its different to the non targa cars

MMM what you have just described you need the DSC pasm upgrade module
theres a long thread on here about a group buy a few months ago , they are not cheap but totally transform the suspension . have a read of the thread and the link before deciding what to do next . I really like the way it makes my car feel subtle but how it should have come from the factory

I've had the springs fitted for a while now, no different to OEM in my eyes.

Mix of British and European roads over the last 1000 miles or so.
