    Default VXR Remap Rebooked!!! YEY!

    Rebooked with Dave this afternoon. All good for next Thursday. Also getting the new springs put on. I was hankering after a full setup but apparantly the standard SRi stuff ain't bad. So springs first

    Can't wait

    Looked underneath the car whilst getting the wheels rebalanced today and the SRi struts are made by Sachs. Damn good stuff Sachs are

    I'll, as always keep ya posted

    If the springs are much shorter or firmer than the ones you're replacing, you may find the shocks will not be able to cope and you'll find yourself bouncing down the road after any small dip. In which case you might find you'll be getting your new shocks sooner than you'd planned!

    You'll be ok if the current shocks are pretty firm though, which I imagine the SRi ones are.

    LS shocks are absolute pants with uprated springs, as I found out!

    Yes mate, never been a fan of just springs before now. But going to be trialling them for Dave @ VXR too for the estate version and see how things go. I ain't got a problem with that whatsover

    SRi stuff is quite good after thinking it over, just a tad wallowy. So hopefully should sort that plus lower it slightly to match me wheels.
