Springs

Are there any springs available to lower the car that don't require the adaptive suspension option? I found one from H&R but I need to have the adaptive option checked to use it. Let me know if you guys have seen/heard of any out there!

Car has 5" of ground clearance, why would you want to lower it?

I also wanted to change. I think if you have adaptive M suspension, you need to get the one for M40i H&R sport spring.
But from my previous experience, the suspension sock absorption component will die early than usual after using this type of spring. So I am still thinking!

I bought spacers for my car and I think after widening the look, lowering the car would make it perfect (in my opinion). I haven't installed them yet so maybe after I put the spacers on I'll change my mind

I'm waiting for eibach pro-kit springs to be available in US. H&R springs have been too stiff for me

Was just wondering what the advantage is or is it cosmetic? Reason I asked was the cars factory ground clearance vs speed bumps.

The Cobra is suspension designed to have variable ride heights & preserve wheel travel. Track day its set at 3-7/8" but it will scrape on most speed bumps. Street setting is F4" & R4-1/4" & its good to go even with two in the car.
