Good afternoon peeps
Ok so at the moment I'm not loving the car as much as I should be...the cruise control has been fitted and works beautifully (thanks Nigel) but the ride is too hard.
Next problem...the springs. As I do a lot of motorway mileage I find the current Eibach Sportline springs too harsh for the long journeys and want to change to something comfier.
The car is black edition and as far as I understand from factory is lowered approx 20mm compared to SE. The 2 options I've been looking at is H&R sport springs or Eibach pro-kit as the H&R OE springs would probably result in the dreaded factory arch/tyre gap returning.
The best way to describe my requirements is that the Sportlines are spot on, but in some instances I'd just wish the edge could be taken off.
The H&R website says the Sport springs lower between 37.5 and 45mm.
The Eibach Sportlines (currently on the car) lower between 42.5 and 57.7mm.
The Eibach Pro-Kit lower between 25 and 37.5mm.
So based on the above the Pro-Kit are the way forward however, I have no experience of spring rates and therefore can't assume the Pro-Kit will be more comfortable because the spring itself may be harsh in its damping effect?
I dunno, that's the limit of my knowledge of suspension hence I'm asking for advice.
