    Question Off to look at a Signum Elite. Elite + suspension = GSI?

    Howdo all. We're off to look at a Signum Elite 3.2 at the weekend as the missus would like the extra space but I've said not unless I can make it handle as well as a GSI. Or nearly as well, I imagine the extra estate overhang would affect it a bit.

    Anyway after a good browse on the net I've found that eibach springs and bilstein B4 shocks should give lower and firmer but not rock hard, more like standard GSI. I'd also do bushes if they looked worn.

    Does the GSi have anything else, stiffer arbs, thicker droplinks, that I'd want to put on a signum?

    Cheers

    The GSi has different springs and shocks, that's it.

    Cheers - I dunno about B12s though, I don't want to go too hard. B8s would be the stiffest I think. Otherwise the missus will whinge.

    Aye I did consider but they are a little more than I want to spend really.

    I have seen this in my price range but I get a bad feeling on it and I can't find anything about it on the internet.
