Wondering what you guys think of the two of these. Potter's recommend the Bilsteins to go with my Neuspeed Sport Springs (that I already have), and some others are recommending the Koni's, which have a pretty good GB going on. Can someone compare and contrast them for me?

Re: Koni Yellows vs. Bilstein Sports (tigers24)

Most people with Neuspeeds pair them with Bilsteins...for whatever reason I'm not sure. One thing to note with the Koni's though is that even though they are adjustable, the rear shocks need to be removed to be adjusted.

konis are good if you want to adjust them to a perfect setting.
bilsteins already come with a pretty good setting.

Re: Koni Yellows vs. Bilstein Sports (gti415)

I'm running Koni Yellows w/ Neuspeed SofSport Springs and like the setup very much. I can't comment on the Neuspeed Bilstein setup but assume it is very similar. I would go with whatever is cheaper.
As far as adjusting the Konis. I got mine installed 50% F, 70% R. I've adjusted the F to around 75-80%. To adjust the fronts is simple, remove the the strut cap and use the supplied knob to adjust stiffness. I'm not sure how to adjust the rears but have read that it takes a bit more effort.
