i love my illumina's. Mine are paired with some tokico springs as well. They offer great handling with an almost stock like ride quality.
I'll let you drive my car at the next meet, that way you can get some first hand experience with them. But keep in mind i also have bigger sway bars and strut tower braces all around.
Whats the spring rate on the Neuspeed race springs?

They are great! Especially if you match them up with some good springs and some beefier sway bars.

i love them.. mine are matched with H & R race springs .. they are very nice and stiff.. i was going to go with Koni Yellows even though its covered through warrenty rumour has it that the seals go quickly which is not something i want to deal with.. couldn't be happier with tokico... i don't regret buying it but i kinda wish that i bought Tein full adjustable coilover with adjustabel shocks ... but thats cool.. no biggy

Hmm, really, well it's for my jetta, and I have Eibach sportline springs, and I was thinking of koni yellows, but I don't know if I have the cash for that, so I may end up going with the tokicos, there adjustable too, so I can set it to my preference

i have illuminas with H&R sports and i absolutely love em. i have them set on 2 front, 3 rear and the ride is great plus it corners very nice. these can be found in the us much cheaper then here. mine were $412 for all four brand new with shipping to a friend in ohio. so if you know somebody in the us send me a pm and i'll let ya know the seller i got'em from (ebay)

i also found 3 front, 4 rear to be alittle stiff for rough roads and no difference in handling either.

Probably, LOL

My friend just installed Illuminas in his EK hatch w/ Eibach Sportlines and it rides great. The hardest setting is pretty stiff, while the softest is pretty soft. Good range of adjustabitlity for only 5 settings.

i actually had the combo you want... its a decent ride, was a little low in the front which is why i eventually ditched the neuspeed race springs... but for handling and what not its good times... springs rates are 485 front and 395 rear...
