    With my S3 it is near enough the same as standard, the springs are progresive so they stiffen up if your cornering hard etc

    The ride is alright, but not as good as coilovers.

    I cant imagine coilovers being as comfortable a ride as the OEM dampers, coilovers are always going to be firmer even on there softest damping setting. Iv always thought coilovers were for people looking to go mega low or a track enthuasiast, not someone who uses there car to nip around town and commute to work lol

    I have the 35mm H&Rs and the ride is good. Progressive, like Davie says. Almost feel softer than my SE springs under normal driving, but that 'semi-softness' gets firmer quickly.
    Cornering and turn-in is MUCH better than stock

    Ride is very good.
    Very slightly stiffer than OEM but not certainly not a `hard` ride.
    Just MUCH better all round.

    cheers

    As mentioned the H&R springs are very similar to the standard ride quality, just better handling. Coilovers will definitely be stiffer again over the standard ride.

    My coilovers on softest setting were bouncey as hell, so deffo more comfy over standard oem setup, but now on half way hard, they are just perfect man, if you were local I'd take you out in mine..
