You will absolutely love them. Perfectly stanced, no droop and on the spot comfort vs sport. Height wise mine was 1 inch between fender and tyre top.

I had the H&R, and they were the worst springs you can get, they were too soft and too low. Meaning you scrape everything getting worse over time as they droop. The front rake made the car handle wierd.
Looks cool though cos it was raked and low.

One advise , there is a pasm controller available which transforms the pasm and sport springs, it is the best money I spent and solved my handling issues. You can Google that... Old

Great choice on the Tech art springs, I have them on my Gen2 C2S about 15mm lower, the ride still very good whilst not so stiff that the dampers are overwelmed even on the standard setting.

Do you mean the DSC module for upgrading PASM Thumb yes great bit of kit , but for the gen1 you also need the accelerometer so it ends up being about £1200

exactly, ✌
Alsov try the slightly firmer setting for the techart springs.
I found it less floaty and comfortable.

1200 quid is worth it considering a decent suspension system with adaptive damping with fitting and setting will.cost a lot more.
