    Spacers has nothing to do with comfort as they are placed on top of shocks
    Shocks get full n free movement
    But yes u r raising center of gravity....lesser grip specially on turns

    I replaced tyres then to size 185/70/13 (Hard tyres that is Bridgestone not soft ones like Michelin), which has surely reduced the problem, but not solve it fully.
    To sum up all, one option left now to install half inch spacers along with hard tyres of size 185/70/13. So when you change tyres, go for said ones and install half inch spacers, and then inform me about the results. I have decided , not to go for spacers at this stage and doing zig zag crossing on jumps.

    80% of my drive is alone and on highways, I would opt for Passo any day for myself in terms of features and ride comfort. My 2 requirements were Automatic Car and Hatch back which are fulfilled by Passo.

    But anyone who wants a zero meter car, don't want to go to mechanic for 2-3 years, cannot figure out JDM parts easily, lack of experience or trusted person around to buy a good JDM, should opt for WR.

    JDM maintenance is less but costly, PkDM maintenance is cheaper but more.

    I am planning to buy WR for my father, so that he can get rid of mechanics (have old cultus atm) for 2-3 years, Power steering, good fuel economy, ample space in car for family for short trips, very soft clutch, in case of maintenance has to go to dealership nearby. After all we will buy what my father wants.

    MY ANALYSIS IS BASED ON MY ASSUMPTIONS AND EVERYONE HAS RIGHT TO DIFFER FROM IT.

    Regards
    I think fair comparison will be passo vs faw v2, what do you think

    Stay away from chinese tyres. They are good for a few months and after that they become rock hard.
