The RoW M030 is the best upgrade you can do to the 986, IMO. But not because of the looks.

Have you driven a car with them? Some think the coilovers are too stiff for a roadgoing car.

I like a stiff suspension myself, but I've had my car at Bremerton and Pacific Raceways and the M030 is a very good track suspension for a novice. I really don't wish for anything stiffer.

good point. I love the way the Box handles stock, the way it is so easy to rotate around corners....it just rides a tad high for my tastes........yes a stiff car gets tiring, the Saab is insanely stiff and its a nightmare driving that thing on the 5 through downtown Seattle where the roads are pretty bad.

May I suggest the H & R springs only if it will mainly be a street car. I haven't had coilovers, but my guess would be halfway stiffness between stock and coilovers.

I love what the H & R's did for my Box ride height.
