    Mine was 30mm drop, which I think is perfect for everyday driving.... any lower and you'll be worrying about your splitter all the time.

    Nice one Andy. Look forward to the pictures

    Hi Andy, I dont know whether I did answer the question as an SRI in original spec (I was told) was 20mm lower than normal.

    When I had my 30mm lowering springs fitted, it dropped another 10mm over the original SRI ride hight..

    I still think, that the front should come down another 5-10mm though due to the larger front wheel arches

    oh right ic no probs


    just hope now i ave ordered them it will still be 30mm lower than it is
    now as i have the sports suspension on the siggy so if it aint going to
    be that much lower then i cant see the point in doing it so fingers crossed.

    Thats what I thought, but no, its 30mm drop from standard. You might want to check, but I bet you will see only 10mm over what you have now, if you are already running sports suspension.

    I hardly noticed any difference, although now its had a few weeks to settle, you can tell, but it doesnt look 'really low', just lower..

    Anyway, regardless of ride hight, it should still make the suspension stiffer for better road holding at speed etc...

    EDIT: and people have commented on it looking nice and low, so that 10mm does show

    Andy, take a look at my car pics on the link below !!

    You can see the ride hight against 19" wheels ... and you can see on some of the shots that the front ideally needs to be lowered another 5-10mm (In my opinion)

    Just seen this thread.

    Yep, spoons is right Andy. The Signum Design is already dropped 20mm compared to the Elite - so fitting the Irmscher springs is only going to drop you another 10mm from where you are now.
