    Evening,

    I know, the websites a bit manic at the moment and causing major problems.

    H&R do a 35mm kit - 499
    KW do a 40mm kit - 449
    Weitec do a 35mm kit - 375

    Thanks,

    Damian @ DPM

    Whats the ride like on these ? I've been advised at the moment to Go for Koni Sport shocks and Eibach springs.

    A lot less harsh on the road then the setup you've been advised to get. The Weitec's are particually good for comfort.

    what would you go for ? I don't want coilovers and am not to bothered about ride height, I don't mind firm suspension but I want to remove the bounceyness that affects the S Line.

    I'd say the H&R stuff is one of the best available but they have put there prices up. It delivers a sporty ride without being too harsh and the quality of the stuff is second to none.

    If you're wanting a more comfortable kit then maybe look at the Weitec, perfect for everyday use and not too expensive.

    thanks, would you reccomend it over the bilstein kit or K&R or even the eibach kit, I don't mind the ride being firm its just the shocks don't seem to be able to control the car it just crashes about and bouces.
