    With the sportlines did you tried the upper perch as well ? If yes, did you noticed any ride comfort difference compared to the lower perch ? And if no, do you think that the upper perch compared to the lower may have a big difference in ride comfort ?

    I can't go with ground control coilover sleeves cause they are not TUV approved ( german certificate ) needed in my country in order to be cleared by car inspection . So my choice was very limited but i already got my springs and in the next few days i should order a set of Koni yellow that i'll pair with my springs.

    ^Ride comfort does not change between perches, the car is behaves the same on the lower perch as it would the upper, just at a lower height. And like I said what really determines ride comfort is how you dial in the Koni shocks. Yes Sportlines are firmer than factory springs, but the improvement in handling and feel is way more noticeable than a loss of ride comfort which is very little (Sportline springs rates are very soft still). Actually a firmer spring can even make the ride comfort seem better because the car isn't leaning and wobbling all over the place so you and the car feel more planted and controlled.

    You are overthinking it a bit lol, trust me you will love the ride the Sportlines + Koni's give. You'll have a decent drop and a wide adjustability in ride comfort with a little additional adjustment room in ride height as well. It's like this setup was made for the 6GA. :thumbsup:

    Sportlines aren't tuv approved so i can't use them in my country. It's not that i'm overthinking it, it' just i have a little time to think of the different options i got before lower the car. I've got already the springs, not low as the sportlines but at least tuv approved. I'll try to use the koni low perch then and see how it goes.

    I'd be curious with koni set up. A buddy of mine is looking at an Accord as next project right after we finished installing the skid plates and a few jeep accessories on his Wrangler project. Sports line with koni really sounds a good combination.
