    Coilovers fitted

    Finally managed to get my Bilstein PSS9's fitted yesterday, and wow what a difference! Ride height still needs dialling in, need to experiment with the local speed humps... but the cornering with them on is out of this world with no body roll, and far more composed than the previous standard sport suspension. And this is without having the wheel allignment done!

    Here are a couple of crummy pictures, I know that it needs cleaning and that will be getting done at some stage today.

    Steve,

    Did you just have the coilovers, or have you changed the springs or any other suspension parts? Also, how much lower than standard sport is it now? I find my standard sport very harsh over the rubbish roads here, and I'm only on 17's. Have the coilovers changed the ride stiffness? Does it still "crash" over bumps and holes or is it more forgiving? I didn't like the SE suspension because it was too soft with loads of body roll, but although I'm hapy with the sports cornering and handling, I find it too harsh for normal driving.

    Thanks for the comments guys. The coilovers are a direct replacement for the springs and shock absorbers, and are adjustable as to the stiffness settings (1-9) 1 being as soft as the standard sports suspension and 9 being like concrete, ideal for trackdays but forget it for normal roads.
    I currently have mine set at 6 front and 4 rear together with my RS4 rear anti roll bar. This is stiffer than standard, but thats the way I like it

    Is it any lower than standard sport, or is this also adjustable.
