    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Default Coilovers

    As you may be aware from my previous thread, i took the plunge and got hottuning coilovers. Been running them for over a week now and they seem to of settled in so i decided it was time to slam it lol. Spent today fiddling around and lowered the car by the maximum 100mm It really has improved the ride no end, yes its a bit bumpy and you can feel yourself run over a stone but the handling is amazing! Strut brace and rear spoiler next!

    Sorry guys no pics yet as cars not clean but i will get some up when i next clean it.

    I wish you luck if its any lower than mine as i have quite a few problems with speed bumps etc



    mines as low as it goes on the back and set to match on the front, You are right about them handling well but my kit is not uncomfy at all and it not much different to standard ride quality wise.


    It doesn't actually look that low in that pic

    Mines not uncomfortable better than lowering springs on standard shocks but it is a hard ride

    Go for it, well worth it and they are very good quality. i got mine for £380 + post. i had to raise the front 10mm to balance with the rear and also it was rubbing on full lock. Should be fine on 20s as the tyre circumference is still the same.

    I will get some pics this weekend, even if i dont get the chance to wash it lol
