H&R supersport Finding

Well it has been 2 days since i swapped springs and all i can say is wow!!! First off, there is probably only a 3% ride degrade (hardly noticeable) All i can say is, wow this thing is a monster!!!!! the car feels way more planted when cornering, and is really confidence inspiring.

Just recently i was stopped in the middle of a intersection making a left hand turn, the traction was off and sport mode on. i floored the car and proceed to turn, and to my surprise i had absolutely no wheel spin!! If i did that with stock springs the car would have been sideways through the whole intersection.

Im very impressed with these springs and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Looks truly great, but do you guys have to import the H&R springs?
There must be a reseller ther somewhere?.

Regarding the car, it would look even better if you raised the rear about 5mm, insert a thicker rubber pad.

ya i couldn't find super sports anywhere else but ebay. In the pictures the rear seems lower then it really is because of the shadows/lighting, if anything i would lower the front a bit more.

Looks very nice but I can see what you mean about the rear wheels. Maybe a 5mm spacer would make things look a little better.

It says in both W204 C300, C350. I think it would work also in my C220 or is there any changes in suspension?

Whats the big difference between sport and super sport? What would you recommend for daily driving?

i believe it would be the same to fit, but it's better for u to check with the seller to confirm, and the only difference between these 2 is the height mainly as u could see from the description of the item. For daily driving wise, i believe it would perfrom the same, but when the car is lower then u have to be more cautious to deal with. And i just order a set of sport and will be put on this wed.

My 2 friends has 220cdı and 200 Komp. They sent mail to H&R to ask which springs they should fit to their cars. H&R suggest to fit C300 and C350's super sport to their cars. They fitted and has no problem now.

This car (C350) is from another forum that has fitted H&R sport. Front and rear are a bit higher than super sport.

Good seller in my opinion


Honestly, its not bad at all, highway the ride is the same, the only difference is when going through a pot hole, then u can feel it a bit more nothing big tho, it still feels like a MB.

Hey, i got all my stuff from ebay (and ya shipping sucks) but for my springs i let MB of Durham do the install.

Is seems like mbfanatics.org is the main page for Canadian MB's hopefully there will be a meet soon, definitely cant wait to get on the track tho (circuit)!!

Honestly, i think the drop is perfect, i may be biased tho however, i think installing h&r sport springs on a sport w204 would kind of be a waist as it will not lower the that much.



p.s. To anyone who drives their car hard, these springs/ ride height make the car feel 100% different, a lot more planted, and a lot more grip.

Hi,

The images of the white car above is mine taken last year. It's actually slightly lower now after 1 year. I'll post some pics this summer.

I can't even imagine driving in Toronto with the H&R Supersports... (i grew up in Toronto) . In Vancouver the roads are significantly smoother (well except downtown!) and I still have the occasional problem now that the H&R Sports have settled in.

Please know that it will settle in and drop another 0.2 - 0.3 inches atleast...

That being said, your car looks fantastic ! what a stance... looks perfect. Will it be practicle... time will tell. I almost sometimes regret getting the lowered springs... but the looks make up for it.

Actually I never did get the alignment done (didn't really need it, but it is off a slight bit)
I've lowered my mazda 3 many years back... and that clearly needed alignment.

Here is a picture taken at our car meet yesterday by MemberID 451/443=EW .... in Vancouver...

2nd from the right (white c350).. you can see my H&R Sport springs 1 year later... pretty low. It dropped about .2 inches since last year...and on some crazy speed bumps.. it's rubbed the bottom of the front lip (not that you ever look below the car)... nothing too bad.. but still...

The ride quality is about 20% less than stock after 1 year on downtown bumpy roads. Smooth roads / highway driving there is no difference. The cornering is of course significantly better.

Looks good. You should get some wheel spacers to push them out a little.
