    confused Eibach's or pi's

    I want to know if I should go for eibach or pi springs for my 2.0t Sri but rather than know how much they lower the car by I wand to know what gap they both leave front and rear. Also the apex 35mm springs.

    I've got Bilstein B6 shocks and Eibach (30mm) springs with 19" snowflakes.

    Unfortunately they are not for sale mate you'll find some though

    I thought the same when got my SRI. looks like a bit of a monster gap in the fronts regardless of the 15mm drop... I thought old owners may have even replaced front springs with standard height etc after a break - but it was just me

    PI's, 40r/45f...

    PI's if you actually want to lower your car, easy choice IMO.
