about 1k miles on my H&R's with zero issues... I push the car hard in the turns at high speed bends and sharp curves. I have not noticed any noises, thumps, or loss in handling. H&R got it right with the these springs plus you dont go all stupid with the slammed look; 1 inch up front and .6 of an inch in the back.

I run the sport plus setting on the dampeners and I honestly can not tell the difference from the stock set up even on decent longer drives on Cali freeways.

Here is a shot of mine with the drop:

Here is the real test. Can you go to Starbucks. Buy a grande coffee and place it in the cup holder. Then drive to work without any spilling?

In my M3 with H&R springs, that above maneuver always resulted in coffee explosions and multiple f bombs!!

I loved the look and handling, but ride quality was brutal on uneven pavement!!
