Thumbs Up New suspension on my 147

I just had a set of H&R sport springs and a set of Koni adjustable sport dampers put on my 147, after months of "deciding".
So far I am happy with the results, the first drive with the car felt a bit unsettled, as the car seemed to be more "bouncy". After about 150 km on the new suspesion, everything is now settled in nicely and I am thoroughly impressed.
The cornering abilities of the 147 has never been as good as what I experienced on my 155 (fantastic handling IMHO), but now it compares well with my Mini Cooper, maybe less go-cart like, but very stable. The ride is not harsh at all, but is is definitely firmer than the standard suspension.
Looks wise the car dropped about 30 mm, an added bonus

Next step will be upgraded calipers & discs, Powerflex bushes and maybe anti-rollbar upgrade.
