There was no B5 Ultra Sport.   There is a B6 UltraSport.   Did he 
take that B6 suspension and put it on his B5?      (There could have 
been an UltraSport available in Europe though....but never in the US.)

The recommended setup I've heard for Sport package cars is Bilstein 
HDs set on the lowest perch with the factory sport springs.   That's 
apparently a great setup....
