    Yeah I think I paid about £70 for my last alignment, but was being quoted up to about £90.

    Yours is a Sport, right?? How low is your car mate, and what springs and dampers are you on??

    Im on coilovers .I have re adjusted my set up around five times now .So would recommend them if your area has loads of speedbumps and you use the car for holidays .If you buy shocks n dampers your stuck at one height that you may hate .Mine are cheapos Though .could not handle them fully down !

    thats what im thinkin Nath! do the V1's have the same amount of (height) adjustibility as the V3's?? and also can you use these KW adjustable topmounts with the V1? if you havent seen i mean these! Audi Tuning, BMW Tuning, VW Tuning, Opel Tuning, Mercedes Tuning, Mini Tuning

    Sorry to hijack the thread but for anyone interested I bought a set of KW V2s off a lovely lad off the forum, however I'm minus the rear dampers, as I'm too bone idle to sort out sourcing rear dampers on there own I am open to sensible offers for the rest of the kit.... Pm for details....

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but interested to know what Ads went for in the end?

    Are you happy with the height/comfort?

    Is the pic in your sig this setup? Or 'shopped?

    Cheers,
    Tim
