    Default Sports suspension??

    Is there any way I can tell if I have sports suspension fitted??

    I have the Elite 1.9cdti and it has the 19inch snowflakes on, the ride is quite stiff and you can feel every bump and ripple on the road, the ride height looks normal though??

    I would say your motor has the standard elite. The only way I'd tell if it has is to ask, does it fell like it's wollowy on the bends ???
    I put Eibach's on mine and got a 30mm drop and it handles much much better.
    The harsh ride is from the 19" snowflakes.

    It doesnt feel wallowy in the bends but I suspect your right and it is just the wheels.

    In your profile pic it looks quite high so i'd say stock Elite.

    If the car came from the factory with the 19" wheels then i am sure they fit the "sports" suspension as standard regardless of the cars original spec But it must have come from the factory with the big wheels !!!!!

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    Might be worth asking down the Vx dealers. Give them your chassis no and see if they can trace what spec it had.

    Depending on country of manufacture, it may have a EU Conformity Certificate
    Within this is the suspension specification, and in that column you will be able to tell
