    Default Eibach Pro's + Bilstein B4's

    What is the ride like with these fitted ?

    also is £367.96 a good price for the parts only.

    im asking this as i went to a private garage and got quoted £1157.80 for parts and labour that included the banana arms being done

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    the ride is better for sure, you notice it. holding a corner or roundabout is better, the ride is harder or course but you are lower so it needs to be. I reckon its great combination..

    i guess the price is ok.

    http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/Bilstei...nd-Signum.html

    http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/Bilstei...nd-Signum.html

    from LMF including shipping will be about £365 ish,, could be where your quote is from.. If your price includes a set of upper control arms then it is good..

    As for fitting costs, tell them to be more realistic, no in fact tell them to do one... but first ask how a non mechanic can do this job in one afternoon having never done it before..
