Thanks! I've only had the AMRs on for a few days, and I've only driven to school and work, but I was a little surprised at how well they handled the various dips and bumps on my regular commutes. I do rub the inner front fender liners ever so slightly on some small dips, but otherwise I am extremely happy with them. I don't even rub my fenders in the rear, and I still have to get them rolled! As far as ride quality goes, its great, even with the higher spring rate and the increased stiffness. I feel every imperfection in the road, but the car doesn't bounce everywhere, its much more controlled and predictable now.

Also, the rear shock body does touch the end links, so I have a little extra noise in the rear right now, but I have a set of custom end link brackets coming from NVA-AV6 that will remedy that problem.

Thanks Kevin, I appreciate it. Oh and thanks for bringing AMR to the forum, I would have never known about them if I never saw the research you had done on quality coilover systems.
