H&r springs

Afternoon guys I'm new to the forum so I apologize for the rookie topic. Does anyone have any pics of a boxster with 17 inch rims and h&r springs. I'm about to order some but I am hesitant bc I'm not
sure if the 1 inch drop is enough to give me the sportier look I want. Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated. Thank you

If you get the springs that are a dark purple colour, you will drop a lot more than an inch...maybe 40mm.

You will not get the rear geometry correct though without adjustable toe arms

I have H&R "street" coilovers on my Cayman. They are hardcore. Super firm and harsh riding, be warned.
"Betty" -- 2000 Boxster S, Triple Black, loaded except PSM (sold to a good home)
"Veronica" -- 2008 Boxster S, Arctic Silver on Blue
"Maleficent" -- 2007 Cayman S, Red and Black, TPC Turbo 3.6L 460 RWHP, H&R RSS Coilover / TPC stage 2 suspension

I have the eibach pro kit. It is a 25mm (1inch drop). It looks much sportier. First impression was an immediate reduction in body roll, was very pleased.
