Default F Sport AVS suspension

Out of all the CL members with Lexus IS Fsport RWD and AWD w/ AVS

We want to know who has sacrificed AVS to run coilover and who is running lowering springs to keep the AVS functional.

We are currently in development of AVS compatible coilover system and will be released this month and would like to get some feed back if the Fsport owners with AVS. really use the system. or dont care too much about it.

Aftermarket coilovers that can accept the AVS system would be awesome in my opinion. The AVS is a great system that's already on the car.....it would be a shame not to use it.

I for one is definitely waiting for a coilover system that can utilize the AVS system. depending on the price of course.
Wouldn't pay a huge premium for AVS since standard coilover = driving on stiff suspension full time... which may not be a bad idea anyways.

We dont plan on raising the price. just because little more engineering was involved with modifications.

We are going to make it as simple as possible so you can utilize the AVS system. our set will basically fit right on to the AVS module itself. We are currently fine tuning it so it wont cause any stress to the motor as regular dampening is a bit stiff.

I only run coilovers on my cars, but this was an unusual case. I have never owned a car with adaptive suspension so I opted for springs to retain this feature.

I'm all for this

I will buy this if the price is right and there are some documented before and afters to ensure this isn't going to degrade the performance from the stock setup.
