    Ride is definitely firmer and can feel more of the bumps but still comfortable in my opinion. Will need some more time to determine real life usability with regards to clearance and bottoming out on larger bumps. Mind you all my cars have been lowered so I'm used to the harsher ride and navigating potholes.

    Of course this is to be expected when you reduce the stock suspension travel by an inch or so. Long term life of stock shocks/struts to be determined with the lowered ride height.

    Handling is much improved with reduced body roll in turns and more stability at high speeds with the lower center of gravity. Car feels much more sporty and planted and still absorbs most of the bumps without issues. If you like to hit highway on/off ramps with gusto the lowered suspension will definitely put a smile on your face. It has renewed my excitement of driving the Micra.
