To be honest, i just wanted to fill the arches a bit better and the car to look better so mainly aesthetics. A more composed ride over stock suspension would be a bonus. So i guess, springs are a better choice given my budget - which springs are good for the s2000 then? Besides the miesters you mentioned. Thanks again

You will probably just ruin the ride if you just change springs. I did a lot of research when I was buying coilovers and Bilstein PSS should be as comfy as oem and in your budget.

The PSS are not as comfortable as OEM, you need the PSS9 for that.

Just FTR, Koni do a kit for the S2K with adjustable dampers (yellow) and H&R lowering springs (25mm) which I bought new for around £450 + fitting. I purchased as I thought I had a failing shock and decided that at 140k+, the old ones were most likely past their best. That said, looks like they are a bit more expensive now - I got mine from a friend whom works at Ferrari and got me a direct trade price
Very happy with the look. Ride is firmer than stock on their firmest, but I believe on their softest they are around stock. A little crashy, but I use my car daily and have no issues with comfort overall.

If they are good enough for Ferrari, they are good enough for my Honda

Thanks for the link! Is 25mm a bit to low do you think? i wanted to improve the stance aesthetically.... and i was thinking would 25mm drop make the wheels sink into the arches to much? BC coilovers are in my budget aswell - any opinions on this?

I don't have any problem with rubbing etc - ramps and speed bumps are the only real threat - Slow and easy and I'm fine. Judge the ramps accordingly. The front flappy things do catch etc (I've lost one but haven't even noticed a difference ) Personally, I think it looks great and is just the right amount of low. Oddly, the 16"'s look like they fill the fronts more. The 17"'s appear to have settle a bit now (this was taken after getting them fitted)

Apologies for the crap quality- my phone camera is busted

Summer wheels. 17"

Winter Wheels - 16"
