    Cool Look what the postman just delivered!

    Been waiting over a fortnight for these, so very pleased that they've arrived!



    Bilstein B6 dampers! The standard Elite suspension is terrible - especially with the engine power I've got now. I haven't really dared to push the car too hard yet, I just don't have enough confidence in the handling.

    Hopefully my Eibach springs will arrive later too - they were apparently dispatched 2 days ago direct from Eibach....

    And fingers crossed for a visit to Drinky Towers when it's all ready!

    I didn't buy direct from Eibach, I got it all from LMF. But they didn't have the springs OR the dampers in stock so instead of waiting till they arrived then posting them out to me, they arranged for the manufacturers to ship them direct to me

    This is one of my mods to do when i come back form holiday,not dampers just springs,still undecided what springs to buy I know the Eibach's are the best but i can get other's for half the price..........

    My choices were limited - the 2.8T is a heavy engine and there's not a lot of springs that are suitable. I originally wanted PI -40mm but they don't do them, nor the Eibach Sportline -40mm, so I settled for good ol' Eibach -30mm. I didn't want 'slammed' low, just better handling really, and it will still be worlds apart from what I've got now though, so I'm happy.

    Vehicle : Vectra GSi 3.2 V6

    Trim : GSi

    Engine : Z32SE

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 208,102

    Default

    I shall be watching this with interest. I put Eibachs on mine earlier in the year - around Easter - and would like to put B6s on next. The Eibachs have already improved the handling noticeably by themselves! The car feels more planted and stable.

    How does it drive now?
