    Had to vote Apex as have had them fitted for a couple of years now with no problems at all.

    Have no experience with Eibachs but with so many people having them fitted, they can't all be wrong can they?

    Have Eibachs myself and love them. The car sits perfectly, the rear end used to look lower than the front on standard SRI springs, fitting the Eibachs fixed this. Totally transformed the ride of the car. They even soak up bumps better than the original springs!
