buy the koni kit. by far the most bang for buck there. IPhones however cool they are the in thing right now. 3 months from now maybe a blackberry will be the in thing. But a koni kit that is always the in thing

No, not really.

I yank the wheel with the konis on full hard, and it feels lousy.


My wife's Matrix with all-seasons on it has better turn in, and steering feel than my 9-3.


Granted, the koni kit rides better than stock on full soft, but the 9-3 is NOT a sports car by any means.

First time my friend dropped his I-phone it cracked the screen. Razors do suck-ass as well! Buy saab parts.

So true! NG900/9-3 has a vague steering turn in feel no matter what you do it seems. A c900 gives millions of times better feedback. To bad they breakdown so often...

Slightly different strut spring physical assembly.

Don't know if the specs between the 2 are directly comparable....

Keep in mind the iphone costs probably double what the koni kit does.

I'd go for the koni kit.
