"not practical but visual appeal"
Dear, he (ofcourse each one of us) doesn't want the car to be in "showcase" with visual appeal rather than practical.
-Heating the springs: not sure that both springs will get equal amount of heat. If not, just think of the end result.
-By making them soft with heating, if the kerb weight of the vehicle could bring down the vehicle to some extent, what would happen with 5 on board and over a hump?
-By heating there may be deformation in springs (especially eccentricity among the coils) this will spoil the suspension geometry. End result: ride and handling will be poor + premature failure of wheel bearings + tyre wear
