As much as all three cars "fill" similar needs and/or catagories they are also much different. I too believe the best looking of the bunch is the AMV8, but then again looks are so subjective. I have...

I never did inquire about that with H&R. I probably would do it again as the drop in ride height was very noticeable and IMHO closed up the wheel gap just enough.

I would ask them about the offset of those wheels. I read somewhere that they are custom offsets for that car in which they widened the wheel arches. FWIW

The quoted price is about right. I was charged about $800 to install them. If you have active steering plan on spending another $250-300 for an active steering alignment.
