Bilstein PSS9 Coil-Overs!

I can't believe you all didn't tell us! This is the most significant upgrade to my 2000 S I've made! Completely transformed the car. I was at Thunderhill yesterday and drove the new course for the first time - The Porsche handled like a slot car, amazingly responsive, and so smooth around corners. Wow, what an upgrade!

Yes, a nice improvement for motorsport. We have been saying this for many years but you figured it out on your own.

I have K-SportRR's on mine. Couldn't be happier! They should have come from factory with coilovers!

Technically they did come from the factory with coil overs. I think maybe you mean they should have come with adjustable coilovers

I'm looking to eventually get KW V2s myself. Can hardly wait, but I need some nice bucket seats and harnesses first Glad you're enjoying the PSS9s!

Coilovers really do compliment an already well balanced car with excellent cornering ability.

And dont worry about harnesses and race seats... you wont need those until you go with wide, sticky tires.

I need them now, I am falling out of my seat coming out of 13 at Carolina Motorsports Park and would definitely benefit from sticking in place better everywhere else.
