Eibachs v Stock

I'm in the process of debating getting my CTR lowered.
It's been a learning curve having this car for about 4 months now, living with such stuff / hard suspension,
Tell me what is the overall difference feel of the car with eibach springs agains stock springs at normal ride height,

30mm springs with FRS

I've got 30m springs but haven't got the FRS I think the ride has changed to stock

The ride feels more smother you don't get that jolt all the time car feels planted on corners

I am one of those that did not feel all that much difference going from stock to Eibach. Still hard and not very comfortable, maybe slightly less crashy, but nothing mind boggling like many seem to feel.

Same for me. It hits harder than stock but is less bouncy. You notice this more on motorways/faster speed roads.

I wouldn't say its a massive difference
Like said less crash I think it's still stiff but don't seen to feel it as much!

I had eibachs fitted last month,the ride is improved a little but for me the handling is now spot on and the car feels sturdier and safer,I love it.

I think the ride is significantly better on Eibachs -25mm (15mm on CTR)

The jiggly low speed ride is much, much better and at higher speeds and on rougher roads I don't feel like the car is bouncing off everything i.e. the suspension is actually working. The only downside is reduced height at the front that now catches pretty easily

I must have had extra hard oem springs as std!

Just an observation, but most people who say they don't make much difference seem to have -40mm (30mm on CTR).

Although I am happy with the springs if I was doing it again I would be tempted by MeisterR's based on the good reports of other users.
