    I've got them!

    Excellent bit of kit, especially with eibachs fitted. Its only ride firmness that is available to adjust, not height. (I've got mine set to the firmest as theres zero pot holes in my area)

    Anything specific you wanted to know?

    (Not available for the C? They are most definitely available.)

    Its a little hard to be accurate with the adjustment on the koni's IMO. They just supply a knob to turn the little widget on top of the struts. Theres no clicking or uniform position for them. So it took a bit of tweaking to feel that both sides were even.

    Good luck mate, seems like a good price for them anyway.

    I fitted front+rear KONI sport with Eibach pro-kit (-30)
    I would say that It's something you must have
    comparing with stock handling became outstanding
