    I doubt you're gonna feel any "bad" handling on a set of bilstein tbh. Even more so if you're asking about it.

    except for the obvious boat feel if underdampened and overly harsh ride for overdampened, it would most probably affect oversteer or understeer, more specifically which of the two happens first. You might see a difference if you're autocrossing the car pretty hard or if you intend on drifting and you want to tune in a controlable loss of traction.

    Even then, anything roughly in the ballpark of correct, which I would definitly expect from bilsteins with sti coils on them, will work more than fine for all but the most intense of use.

    Donut Media on Youtube did a video series called "money pit" where they upgraded a first gen Miata. They went into enough detail to explain what sort of results you can get with new springs, and how setting up the suspension will change the ride.

    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    Just the act of watching that video in California would somehow start a brush fire.

    I put some StopTech slotted rotors and EBC Yellow pads on the Beetle a couple weeks back.

    The difference is staggering
