ok so i am once again confused about the LSS option. In the article that was just posted it says the car has Eibach springs and Bilstein shocks. I thought the LSS used eibach springs and bilstein shocks??

Also apparently the shocks on the standard and lss are equally ride height adjustable, just the LSS is set one setting lower. And as i understand it neither are adjustable in any other way.

So, how do the shocks and springs differ on LSS? are they the same shocks just valved differently? Same springs but different spring rates?

My understanding is that the LSS uses different spring rates and different valving.. and of course the 5mm lower setting for ride height.

thanks. So basically it is 2500 for the wheels, tires, and adjustable sway bar. I'm still going to go with it i think.

I don't believe the sway bar is adjustable. As far as the money goes, a comparable set of wheels will run you close to $2,000. I also didn't want to be stuck with the stock set which is heavy and in my opinion not that attractive. Now throw in the wider front tire, R compounds, revalved Biltsteins, different spring rates, and lotus engineering, and it sounds like a bargain.
