Does anyone have this kit H&R Cup Suspension Kit



Does anyone have this kit H&R Cup Suspension Kit, (2.1"f 1.7"r) I was curious to see how it looks & rides? any pics.... it sounds like it would drop the car very low. There is also an Eibach Pro-System Kit (1.5"f 1/5"r). Which one does everybody recommend. I want about 1/2 inch space from the wheels & fenders (front & back). If I was running 17inch rims with 45 or 40 wheels. I would really like to see pics or an estimate before I buy..
thanks

Cool ride, was staying away from sport suspention myself, Drive in the snow here and get stuck alot with low cars, the H&R doesn't seem to lower too much (not in your pics anyhow).
How well does it funtion? and how many inches did it go down?

325isred: I got them from Daytona auto....I think i got them for around $1700 installed ane taxes in. I got them almost 2 years ago, price might be different now.

jeffrie: its 2.1 in the front and 1.9 in the rear. they handle a little better than the sport suspention. I have no problems in the snow.

Thanks for the input guys. (TiestoE36) thanks for the pics.
Is there a kit that will give me the space in the back as the same height on the front, or will I have to get a coil over kit? I like the space in the front of tiesto's ride, but I want the back to have the same space.

I think that is what I am going to do, but that's going to be alot of $$$.
1500$ for the coil over. plus the shocks. I don't know how much they are exactly but I think they are anywhere from 100$-250$ each.
This kit costs 597$ us so I would save myself alot of cash

its $1500 with the shocks, its a complete kit.

the cup kit could easily run you $1100 cnd, so not too much more for the coils.

So let me get this right, 1100 for the cup kit & 1500 for the coilover kit. Is that canadian $$$.
Can you give me the number where I can get that. Please, anyone have any hookups could you pass over the number or the URL.
thanks
