I also use PSS9 on my MR... I am very happy with front 4 rear 5... not too hard but firm enough.

Hi guy´s,as RichW said,i have the same suspension in my car,i sold my old one,but i got exactly the same again from Bilstein for the German Tuner GP at Hockenheim in 2 Week´s :D

@ Timspeed: You are wrong,the 9 is the softest setting,1 is the hardest setting ;)

It depends on where you drive it,on the street i like it @ 5 in the front and 4 @ back,so it´s a little bit harder on the back,it handles much better.
On the track i use settings like 1,2 or 3,depends how straight the track is :D

@ RichW: How are you?? Did you install the parts :confused:

definitely about the soft hard range...

I find that if you set your rear harder than the front for pss9 on an Evo, your tail will be too bouncy due to the really lite rear... setting it 4 front and 5 rear will give the car more grip at the back and more rebound to compromise the pitch under braking with the excess weight in the front... the tail all slide much more progressively when the AYC is activated in this setting... just a comment some experience I have to share with you guys!!!

Very pretty Matt, you didn't tell me that you had the pimp stickers on yet :D :cool:

We'll have a play with your settings when we meet up soon to set the geom. My initial spec would be to start at setting 3 and go from there. Absolutely no point in running rock hard susp with class 1a tyres ;)

Hi Sai Ray

Do you happen to have a part number/model code for the PSS9s on your ride? Looking for a set in my neck of the woods.

I was under the impression that Bilstein does not manufacture coilovers for E8/MR.

Thanks a bunch.

Cheers
