    Default Quick poll on B4 or B6 shocks?

    hi Would you spend

    A-£335 on pro springs and B4 shocks

    or

    B-£600 on pro springs and the firmer B6 shocks

    Are the B6 shocks worth all the extra ££££
    Thanks

    Got B4's with H&R springs and they're great, but if I had the extra cash I would have bought B6's or B8's, but it's big jump in price. The B4's will be fine IMO as they have been great for me

    I haven't tried the B4 to compare to, but the B6's are superb. If you can afford it, stretch and get the B6's

    Do you lose much of comfort with B6? I'm considering shock and springs change as on my last way back from home car was quite unstable in a strong wind (never happened with my former Foci). However I'm affraid if it won't be too stiff and too low with B6. But form what you guys say I can see B4 are more like OEM... I'm a bit confused

    Quite the opposite IMO. The B6/Eibach combination with 17" wheels is possibly the best combination of handling & comfort I've ever had.

    What about Eibach sports dampers and Eibach Springs. I think they work out cheaper and I have them fitted on my 1.9cdti and they are good.

    I recon, If I'd like to go for B6 I'd have to lower car for 30mm what I don't want to do. I just want stiffer car lowered up to 15mm. Do I have to stick to B4 then or there are some other solutions?
