Well, honestly, i would recommend foregoing the factory sport suspension 
if you truly want great handling.  it is nice, as i was able  get a ride 
and drive in Brendan's car, but it is still a little soft for the best 
handling.  i would say go with some sort of bilstein coilover setup.  It 
might cost twice as much as the sport package on the 1.8, but it would 
definitely be a better upgrade.....

just my opinion...
