    Default Broken springs - do you have standard or sports versions...

    A quick poll, for those who have had Vauxhall OEM springs break in the past

    Does your car ride on standard height springs or the -15mm sports springs?

    Just trying to see if one or the other seems to suffer more breakages...

    So there's more breakage with standard springs... I'm guessing that standard sprung cars are also not flung around as enthusiastically too, so even on this limited number we're looking at std being twice as fragile as sports versions.

    Or is that just a bit too much like "L'Oréal Statistics", i.e. totally made up and spurious conclusions drawn from hardly any evidence? At least we should avoid the 'airhead WAG influence' which must affect the claims for which mascara would make Kojak's hair longer and more full...
