    As much as I like mine, I can't say I like them any 'more' than when they were silver, they're just a bit different.

    Get a move on and do it, you won't regret it

    Finally got the Eibach springs on today, they promised a 30mm drop which is probably about right after they've had a few days to settle. Will get some better pics when the weather allows me to clean it.

    I'm sure some will say it's not low enough, but it's spot on for me.

    Here's a BEFORE:



    Here's an AFTER:

    Well done mate, better late than never they should take a few months to bed in. I bet when you drove home the first thing that you noticed was the ride was sill very comfy. Eibach are the dog's.

    Lol it's only about 3/4 mile! I'm kicking myself for not getting organised and having the B5 perches ready.

    Spring perches are still standard Colin, will let its settle and then go from there.

    Calipers and hubs are painted black with Hammerite to tidy it up, pictures of that earlier on in the thread I think.

    The ride felt a bit firmer, but I've not been far enough to know for sure. Will update in a few days.

    Thanks mate, They're spring perches which the springs sit on. The B5 ones are a straight fit and give a 10mm drop over B6 ones.

    balls. I've missed that boat when my rears were done then.. that said my car may be low enough for these roads.

    No shame in pic whoring. the car looks great. a very aggressive combination with the dark wheels, s4 blades, s4 grill etc.

    tell that to the Finns matey. they don't so much "lower the kerb" as "grind it off to about 45 degrees". I must get a photo of the kerb that takes me under the tunnel into my carpark. No wonder I had to change my suspension arms. friggin things must get almost twisted off twice per day.
    Being that low probably wouldn't be ideal for driving through 10 inches of snow either, quattro or not. I'd best not go for that look then eh?

    I'll get back to you on this Noel, unless CMD (hopefully) beats me to it

    I need to take some proper pics (and wash the car), but I thought it was sitting quite nicely when I took this:

    You're not the first person who has said that in fairness. Personally i think black is better, but I have some chrome rings I'll try on and take a pic and see what it looks like.
