    Eibach giving a "nose down" stance is a bit of a myth.
    There's only 10mm difference between front and rear so the only place that you notice it is... the gaps between arch and tyre are equal at the front and rear, where as with h&r there's slightly less gap at the rear, giving a "nose up" stance

    But either way its hard to notice unless you take a proper look.

    Ads, that begs the question, what benefits do the Eibach springs give over the standard ones? Other than the obvious lower ride height. I'm hoping they'll be a little less crashy than standard s-line set up.

    Eibachs on my Subaru were not very good IMHO. Even worse when I moved to Eibach coilovers. Lol

    I've tried H&R, Eibach and some of the other cheaper branded springs on several other cars I've owned and I just prefer the quality of the H&R product - that is just my opinion though

    The Sper RS are 2 piece forged, normal RS's are three piece and don't tend to come in 18/19" sizes.

    The Super RS is still in production so you can buy new from BBS, the normal RS's ceased production years ago.

    There will be slight stretch, you will need 5/6mm spacer to clear the front strut.

    I got some rubbing issues all over but the car is on very soft setup at the moment,
    need to stiffen her up and go down in the front for another 6-8mm!
    Oh and at the back i will also remove the screw bumper. I think that will do the trick
