    Default new suspention

    im now at the point where i feel my pi lowering springs might be a bit tired(3years old)
    i was looking at the fk coilovers,they seem cheap and could be my next option.
    im sure some on here are using them?how do they feel on the car?do they ruin they comfort of the car?
    thanks.

    Out of interest how are the Pi springs? Do they affect the comfort/handling?

    Rab i have read a fair bit about noises from the FK set up but that was on heavy 3.2's etc so i reckon with yours being the 1.8 you will be fine.

    It will look superb
