If you want it to ride well you need to get the eibach springs and dampers.
Then you can still get over bumps and the ride is much better than the origional setup (y)

It's only the rears that are the same on both variants, the fronts are different to cater for the weight difference.
Mines lowered on 17's with Eibach springs and dampers, it does make the ride slightly more harsh but not uncomfortable, only really noticable on local potholes :incazzato:. There are quite a few speed humps here as well, but i've not managed to scrape one yet!
