Default Hydraulics... what?!?

Hey all- got kind of an odd question. I have gone some different routes as far as suspension goes. Nothing seems to satisfy me. I have gone Vmaxx, was pretty happy with the drop, could have been lower, but ultimately I wanted a higher quality coilover that handled moderately well, so I went with BC Racing ultra low coilovers.

These handled okay, but didn't drop the car nearly enough. So I have been searching around, and it seems that no static set up will satisfy the drop that I want on an R56. I know that there is a guy running Hydros on his MINI and he said they handle very similar to a very stiff coilovers, which is exactly what I want (and the main reason I despise air-ride... the horrible handling).

Does anyone have any information on hydro suspension for our cars? What goes in to it, how expensive it is, where I could buy it? pros and cons? and very importantly.... How it handles!

Thanks all.
