    The B14s are just firm, not crashy if that makes sense.

    I've got mine with the RARB set on Medium hard too and the handling is perfect even without a diff.

    Don't know I've I'll try the RARB on hard as heard it can get a bit twitchy when you've fitted Coils with one

    I got mine from GNJ Motorsport for 615 quid,

    You can buy them slightly cheaper from Germany and possibly demon tweeks but I buy most of my bits from Graeme at GNJ, service is always bang on and I know if I have any probs he will sort.

    He may be able to do them cheaper than that so just give him a call. Mine got delivered next day

    Yeah that's my biggest bugbear at the moment with the Eibachs and OEM dampers, ride is crashy as hell, even on 18s, plus whenever I boot it, that traction light goes crazy, I think the rear is dropping too easy and the front is coming up and lifting weight off the driving wheels. Can't wait to get them fitted. Gonna do the RARB at the same time.

    Try 19's on eibach's with aged oem shocks...I actually tense up when going over anything that's not completely smooth surface (which is rare lol).

    I've got a RARB but going to do the 18inch td 1.2's and b14's at the same time this summer.

    I almost bought b8's (was just about to pay) and was gonna use them with DAP's...then i realised the price is so close may as well get coilovers. I put 80 miles a day min on my car but even if the coilovers are "less comfortable" than some other options it can't be much worse than it is now.

    As for the alloys, I know how great they are but tbh i would rather get something else. Just don't know of any other decent 18inch that look good in black.
