IME Bilsteins on the 200 and V8 for stock springs are not so good -- 
agreeing with Bernie here.  With Eibach or Sachs Sport Springs (my
experience) and Bilstein Sports, the car handles/rides well in all around
driving and occasional track use.  Using larger than stock wheel/tire combos
and their associated weight makes this effect even more pronounced.
