Smile H&R sport? or Supersport? Pics please!

Hey guys, I know there's been lots of threads on these but I'm trying to decide between the sports and super sport. Is there any difference in comfort? and if its possible please post your pictures so we can tell the difference between the two in terms of the drops.
Thanks!

I have tried and used both springs. My personal choice would be Super Sports.

For me the Sports felt more stiff and it only lowers the car at a range of quarter to less than half an inch at most. Not enough to eliminate wheel gaps especially on the rear.

Super Sports has better feel for me and it lowers the car by an inch or just a little more than that in all four corners especially if you use 5mm rear springs pads.

Thanks ZeroSeVen, is the 5mm pad already on our cars or is that something that I need to buy? Does it make the car lower too?

Im not sure with other W204s but my 2008 came with 13mm rear spring pads so I have to buy 5mm one's from the dealer. I think they cost around $15-20 with tax.

Yes it makes quite a difference using 5mm pads since you are taking out 8mm in height... that is a little over a quarter of an inch more drop added to the inch you'll be getting from the super sports

i agree... i just dropped my car 2 weeks ago with the H&R Sports and I feel that the wheel gap hasn't been reduced at all... I plan to swap out my springs to the Super Sports + a 5 mm spring pad soon...

I'm interested in some good comparison pics too.. I want to see the difference between sports and supersports on a sport package body with the amg 5 spoke 18s.. it's hard to tell what the wheel gap will look like when most pics people post are with 19s and 20s

@blue00r6

my drop has been pushed back till Wednesday next week. i'll have the 18s on and take pics. i'll have same day pics and pics after a few hundred kms.

but, my 204 is 4matic so it will be even lower than rwd apparently.
