  • Coilovers

    I was wondering if anyone could post a few pics of there car lowered on coilovers and or tell me what coilover kit is best? Im stuck between getting these and a full milltek!

    or get the eibach springs they work fine on shocks as the shocks will be fairly new and could get a strut brace and rear anti roll bar

      springs on standard shocks im not to keen on doing. I think a kit compliments the car more than just putting shorter springs on to standard shocks. Plus i want the "slammed" look!

                    that depends on your deffinition of a rally! went from springs only to coilovers on my corsa sri and is a much better alternative in my opinion!

                      yeah i know course they are better if you got the money go for it mate just in my opinion springs work well and look great and at a fraction of the cost. your choice though mate course

                            I'm getting my eibach pro kit fitted as we speak. I was just looking at the KW website and was just wondering whether i should've gone for their spring kit :?

                              full kits are good but then again they are expensive, i have the pro kit fitted and handles like a dream, i was on the same situation between aps and uprated discs and pads, but i decided on discs and pads as 1600 quid is so much money , i know the aps look so good but i cant justify it. so left to get i have, courts 16g discs and pads, remap, intercooler, brake ducts, and possibly a rarb. you will love it mate
