Toyota Auris lowering spring options

I have a couple emails out to H&R and Eibach looking for compatible lowering springs potentially from the Auris. Has anyone found a definitive model number of an aftermarket lowering spring? I know TRD is going to have some, but I intend to hit some local car shows before this season ends and want them NOW not later.

You seem to want to put a lot of work into your iM. How much are you expecting to spend? It just seems like the car is affordable, but once you add all this extra stuff, maybe it would have been a better choice to just buy a more expensive car in the first place.

It's about personalization. That's what Scion intended.

Gotcha, are you sure you've been posting to the right forum?

Just got the car today... me and a buddy are installing the lowering springs Friday.

Gotcha... Not sure what you mean. An intake, lowering springs and exhaust are pretty much standard modifications I've done on every car I've ever owned within a month of buying it.

My last car was a 380wheel horse power Subaru WRX STi that started out at 220 wheel horse power from the factory... I don't ever expect to go bananas like that with this car (but if a supercharger does come out I'd be interested). I like to modify every car I buy to my tastes. I'd rather have a slower iM than a quicker Mazda 3 or Focus... those are ugly, and I can make this just as quick.

P.S. I got the H&R 2013 + Toyota Auris springs... should be about a 1.3" drop front and back. The compatible model number is... H&R 29084-5

DIA Automotive in Virginia Beach, VA. They tuned my last Subaru, and literally work on ANYTHING. Their shop car build is a 800whp+ RX7 and they are building my buddies Subaru hatch on the center lift to 400+whp and my other buddies black GD STi on the lift next to it to 600+whp.

Annnnnyway, springs are installed. I've only put 15 miles on them, but the ride is smooth on a straight line (progressive rate springs), and they may or may not settle another 1/8th to 1/4 inch, but the European Toyota Auris springs by H&R are a 100% fit:
