Hi all,

I'm currently driving a 2011 IS350 SL, the ride is ok but can be harsh especially on uneven road, I'm thinking of upgrade my coilover to HKS Hipermax GT, was quoted $2600 include GST and labour, does anyone have experiences with coilover upgrade? I'm not looking at lowering the car, just want to have more comfortable ride, any comments appreicated, thanks a lot

ilv1004s,thank you for the comment, sometimes on uneven road, it feels like the car drives itself, the rough road surface makes the steering wheel turn slightly, which is weired to me(have driven various of BMWs,Merc,Audi,Mazda,Honda,Infinity) but seems normal for the 2gen IS.

Looks like upgrading to 3Gen IS would be a good choice as I'm very impressed by 3Gen chassis,
