    Just got my Dual Rate Linear Lowering Springs by Unplugged installed on my Model 3 Performance and I'm very impressed. Amazing look and handling characteristics. It’s provably firm but compliant. It feels better when making a sharp turn and feels better driving over roads that are not smooth. Rides much better than the stock springs that came with my PM3. I immediately noticed that the handling has been incredibly enhanced. I did also get new wheels and tires which are wider so that may have also played a part in my experience. I didn't want to go too low because its my daily driver. These are the Super Performance spring which has a moderate height (a 1.5" drop). I really wanted to get the UP coilovers but didn't want to spend the money for them so I figured these were a great alternative. The coilovers are $2500 and the UP Super Performance lowering springs are $420.

    Any updates? Did the ride settle down any more? What made you go with unplugged springs over HR springs? Did u install them yourself? I am wanting to lower my model 3 this summer.

    I haven't noticed a them settling from when they were first installed until now. Im just impressed that they are much better than the stock springs with handling and ride. I actually never looked into the H&R springs because I wanted to lower the car for performance as well as looks. So I was going to go for the Unplugged Coilovers because I wanted to get track ready, but didn't want to spend the money so I just went with their springs instead. Which will still be better for the track than the stock springs. I had them professionally installed by Tag motorsports.

    Thanks for the quick review and photo. I'm still debating between these and H&Rs. The extra .3" doesn't look too bad and you're saying you're not really scraping around, which is good. Would you mind sharing how much install @ Tag was? If not publicly, via PM?

    Car looks amazing, btw!

    Awesome feedback on the springs. I love their products and I’m considering moving up to @UnpluggedP coilovers.

    Surf- Anymore photos available on level ground? Or perhaps an IG or online album (Flickr, etc?)

    You should start a page or something! Such a beautifully executed and photographed car, it’d be a shame not to share. We’re moving to the end of the runway later this year.

    Appreciate the photos again! You’ve solidified my choice in the UP SPs after leaning toward H&Rs for the past week. Ordering now..
