    I had apex springs on my 197, very firm and stiff!

    On my 200 that I know own, I have H&R fitted, like others have said it feels pretty bouncy and unpredictable especially when braking the rear becomes really light and wants to snap round on you!
    Once I have some money I'll going to be getting a set of collies!

    It depends on how you like your car to feel, I like my cars to feel solid with no body roll...probably too firm for most people. Don't be put off by what I've said as plenty of people rate the H&R springs highly and I'm one of very few that dislikes them.

    If I were you I'd be buying the KW's purely on the fact that they are a known as one of "the" things to do on these cars, if your going to do it. Although I might be tempted to try the BC coil overs that Angel is selling as they come with adjustable top mounts I believe??

    Stop messing about Chris, springs are a waste of money and a step backwards, KW V3s or nothing, everything else is an also ran, Cup suspension is the quickest setup, unless you go radical

    Yes, well 197 cup to v1

    a little firmer but nothing too drastic. If they annoyed me they would have been off in a month. Still on 2yers later.

    how well would KW V1s stand up to light track work, i know the V3s are better but they are also £600 more.

    Surely v3s same as v1s just got extra things too play with?

    I have heard a number of people say that with semi-slicks and V1s the suspension is too soft.

    Ollie (who also had an AG200) had this issue.

    guys I need an advise here: I have a 197 non-cup with Simo's adjustable top mounts and Toyo R888s, using mainly on trackdays, and wondering to upgrade the suspension.

    speaking a lot with Yiannis, I know what would be the ideal solution, but, let me challenge it.

    what if I change for a 200 Cup suspension?
    -its cheap as used
    -its renaultsport

    but would it be worth?
    would it give notable difference on track?
    anyone done it this way, and can share the experience?
