Koni Orange?

Compared to stock, how much better are these? Is the difference worth spending the money to upgrade now, or should I wait until I need to replace my stock parts?

Okay, I'll re-ask this... Anyone running KONI STR. T, have anything to say about them?

They are more firm than OEM, the biggest downside though so far is, make sure your careful if you run bigger tires up front. 275/40R20s will most likely not work with them unless they've been worn down some. From what I can tell the spring perch is about 5mm closer to the tire then the OEM struts which was just enough to make a new set of 275/40s rub on the strut.

I did my first autocross on some STR.T shocks/struts this past weekend, and not really sure I could tell any major difference between the OEMs and these.

That would be nice but with the 25% off sale the orange one look good... If they make a difference.
