Good question.... My H&R Springs are arriving tomorrow.
You'll probably want to re-align the wheels after

could affect any off roading with less clearance, also in snow conditions.http://babyrr.com/forum/images/smilies-set/icon_sad.gif

Probably dropping it 30mm puts ground clearance still higher than most cars, so...
Mine will never go off road.

RE: Lower dynamic model

In Canada and USA do Dynamics also get the Magnaride suspension struts as standard because lowering the suspension could have side effects for the Dynamic mode setting in the Terrain Response settings.

Yeah, they do...
I haven't heard of any detrimental effects.

So I have springs in and something is seriously messed up in the back of the car!
Alignment checked out, everything is right... The steering is sharp and responsive... But the back end will hang out and pitch sideways when turning at highway speeds. Very un-nerving!
My mechanic is at a loss...
