Replaced the 15 year old original shock absorbers with these KONI STR.T Orange shocks. Wanted an improvement over OEM performance, but not too harsh. Am very pleased with the ride quality offered by these KONI Orange shocks.

I purchased my GTI used and it had H&R springs with stock shocks/struts. With the Koni STR.T + H&R, the ride is less harsh. I was very surprised to feel this, but it is definately less harsh on big bumps and jolts. The car feels more controlled, especially during mid-corner bumps, much less bounce and jounce. I do not notice any less dive or squat. I can't say the car feels significantly flatter on turns. Overall, I am very pleased with the outcome.
Do not buy unless you want your S2000 to handle like a minivan

These shocks are way too soft for the car. I purchased these and installed on my S2000. They turned the car to a minivan. Body roll is terrible making the car unsafe on turns. I called AutoAnything to suggest return but they said no because I already installed on my car. I think the customer satisfaction policy needs to change. This is my $350 mistake and I hope other fellow Honda S2000 owners will avoid.
