    Default 2.0 turbo owners..

    I gave my car a wash yesterday and can't help but think the front off it still sits a bit high with the Eibach springs fitted..so i might change the front springs to something else..

    Can you guys fire up pictures of your car and tell me what suspension set up your running??

    Looks about 10mm higher than mine.If your tyre side wall is 40 that would explain it.

    No idea to be honest, I got mine from Larkspeed.com as they were cheapest they sell full sets for about £175. Can't speak highly enough about the handling of the springs though, the ride and handling is amazing.

    They are well priced, plus its where i got my eibachs from. Can you mind what kit number you bought, as this one is weighted to 1001kgs, whereas we're 1035 IIRC??

    There's two different kits, one for up to 1000kg and one for 1001kg and over. Obviously I bought the estate kit as well, so the one I bought would be different to what you need.
