    Default Lowering the estate?

    What do i do??

    Im running the 19" snowflakes on it, basically i want it lower yet i dont want to compromise the ride comfort with a combination of lowering and tyre size.

    Im thinking 15mm - 20mm?

    What is available that spring wise, who would you guys suggest as a good manufacturer/supplier please

    Thanks in advance

    I love the estate model, if it's a dark colour it looks truly stunning.

    Eibachs are pretty good at retaining a comfy ride, a lot of good comments on how little difference there is to the standard setup(SRi that is) yet transforming the handling.

    I've got H&R springs fitted with Bilstein B4's and the handling is awesome, but they lower it 40mm(25mm SRi) so you wont want them LOL.

    If you can find someone close to you with the Eibachs fitted your best bet is to try and get them to take you a spin and see for yourself

    Yep, that would be a fitted price as they are the same price as Eibachs around £150
