    Hi everyone got my 50mm springs put on my car yesterday. Really pleased with the results as the car was sitting way too high for my liking beforehand. Anyway here are some pics of before and after. I had my mud flaps removed also I think it just adds to the look of the car. Looking forward to the springs settling in! Thanks to the guys at DPM performance for an efficient service.

    Definitely! I was told they would arrive within about 10 days as they were coming from Germany and arrived just a few days later! Would recommend to anyone

    Looks good, they won't settle a huge amount though!

    thanks mate. Don't want it going down much more I'm happy with the height it's at! Subtle drop and has been fine with speed bumps and the likes which I was pretty concerned about before doing it

    Win win situation then hey! I wasn't overly happy with the drop when I had them on mine. Think it looks better on black cars though!

    Haha yeah I saw that on your progress thread! Just depends on what your looking for really. I just wanted to tidy up the arch gap but still be able to drive it without having to worry about bumps and stuff. I'm glad I didn't listen to one of the members who suggested that I get 35mm springs I would have felt robbed if I bought them

    Should settle like ...

    And this is a slight pain for speed bumps in London - I now dont take any speedbumps driving over the centre of them unless I know them. The undertray has been scrapped a few times and its not a nice sound ... so for me speedbumps do what there supposed to do - slow me down at the annoyance of the the 4x4s rolling around the capital ...

    ill be happy with them settling like that! Iv yet to encounter the individual island speed bumps I think those might cause some problems. I hope not though!

    I'm tempted by a set of these but how long will my s-line shocks last? Lol

    Good question my friend I don't think the springs will give them too much strain but then again I'm no expert haha
