Sorry if this has been said before but I got the dynamic handling package on my car. I want to lower it though does that mean I have to take out the suspension or is there a way around it.

Also if I lower my car can I switch between suspension settings.

Lowering it can be done by just replacing the springs. Check out H&R Sport springs... or you can go w/ the Super Sport if you want it even lower. You still get to check between the settings.

Springs - yes you can still switch settings.

Coilovers - No you cannot switch settings

I believe you'll also get a error code if you have the dynamic handling package and install coilovers

can anyone comment who has the H&R sport springs as to how the ride is with the adaptive suspension, thinking about getting it but concerned that the ride maybe to harsh and how much more drop does it give you? Any regrets?

I'm more worried about it being a little bouncy in comfort-anybody with sport springs and adaptive suspension care to comment?
