After thinking of how happy we have been with the RS*R coil overs on the Vossen Project GS I've decided to go with RS*R springs on the F-Sport. Called them up to ask some questions and they were a pleasure to deal with. They offer two sets:

Standard- drops about .75"
Super Down- drops 1.75"

Also a new coil over system "black 1" is coming and I can't share pics yet but it's really awesome. They told me how much R&D they do not just releasing a suspension but updating it based on feedback. We both spoke on how cool Clark is from VIP Auto Salon and takes goods are of us.

I have to say the wait on the LEXUS f-sport springs are ridiculous at this point, pushed back again to spring. These were to be out first over the summer than for Christmas. Guess Santa no like GS owners lol.

Also now contemplating painting the front brake red or going full front/rear BBK.

Why not go right in the middle with the Tanabe's? It sounds like you are sold on RSR though….

I want the best spring and I want something conservative for now with maybe plans to go lower in the future and RS*R offers two options. The customer service has been incredible and the coilovers I've experienced are top notch.RS*R is a big deal in Japan. Thanks again to VIP Auto Salon.

Springs are arriving from Japan as we speak. Unfortunately due to travel I lightly won't be able to install them with wheels until March but as soon as I am settled, her GS will have them installed. Its been pretty cool to see her WANT wheels and a drop, she now sees how much of a visual difference it makes as well as adding a touch better handling. She said she wants graphite CV4's as she wants to keep a similar color to the dark satin finish on the stock 19" F-sport wheels.

I am seriously contemplating painting the front calipers gloss red as well.

Cannot wait to see it with the drop. F-sports seem pretty rear in this area so seeing one customized even sets it more apart.

Cause I love y'all thanks to RS R & Clark at VIP Auto for making it happen.

Springs should be here for me to install any day now, as soon as I can they are installed hopefully in two weeks. Car has been sitting waiting the last 2 weeks.

Also trying to get permission for bodykit and its looking good!

Ordered the Super Down springs last week from VIP Auto but had them ship air freight directly from Japan to me instead. Can't wait for my Vossen CV4. Hopefully in a couple of weeks more.
