Thumbs up Vogtland North America - Lowering Springs

Hi, spent the entire day (10/28/09) with Owner, Engineer, and installer - Richard Jonec who leads up Vogtland North America, Inc. A great guy with great products! He - yes, he - installed their new lowering springs in my 2010 Camaro beast - about 1" all the way around. I was there the entire time and he did a great job! Now, she not only looks better, but handles much better! The ride is a little stiffer, and I like the way it feels. He used another earlier 2010 Camaro with the first prototypes and these were the ones ready for production. After careful fitting and measuring, he is going to make a small mod to the front spring and they should be ready for production in a couple of weeks. I can find out what the prices will be as for now, I have no idea since mine were free, as well as the installation. it was a pleasure to spend the day with Richard today and I am looking forward to their Coilovers which should be ready for testing by the end of the year, or more than likely, January 2010. i hope to be the test car for those also
