    Default OH MY GOD! ...it's laughing at me

    I've just wandered out to the car to fish something out of the back, and as I got in there was an almighty twang. No prizes for guessing... it's broken a rear *!?!$%** spring!!!

    I mean... c'mon... I'd driven 36 miles home from work 3 hours earlier, and it breaks a spring when I get in the back to rummage for a cd I'd dropped down the side of the passenger seat, while it's parked on my drive!!! I mean, after all I've done for it...

    I think it must know I've been saying unkind things about it behind it's back.

    Ho hum... now... do I lower it???

    Would it look rubbish lowered by 30mm with standard 16" steel wheels? ...do I care? ...hmmm.... opinions please all.

    You might get a few more MPG if its lowered... (Less wind resistance, lower to the ground)

    You could maybe beat your PB then...

    I'm liking your thinking... they'd pay for themselves that way wouldn't they.

    So, having a quick look on eBay, PI are about £100, Apex £106, Spax £110, Eibach £196...


    If I put Eibach's on, at £196 it'd double the value of the car... there I go again...

    Which is my best bet???
