    this is what it looks like with eibach pro spring kit, lowered it 25mm, i personally think its low enough and drive rearly well and still comfort, i've now had a set of neuspeed tie bars fitted on thr back which you will have to buy cause the chamber on the rear is quite alot but now handles like its on rails!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I like my eibachs. I suppose it depends on what shocks you're going to marry them up with.

    I'm trying to get rid of my Eibachs, need to get some H&R springs first lol, my problem is, I drove an S3 on coilovers, and one equipped with H&R springs mated to standard shocks, but sat lower than mine, both of them handled better than my car on tight corners!

    My problem is, I don't actually have the time to purchase the H&R's and swop them over, as I'm pretty busy for the next few months, which is why I havn't offered them to you already mate. No point in keeping you waiting really....

    The rears are easy, shocks and springs are seperate, just undo the lower bolt of the shock and jack the lower arm up with the car sitting on axle stands.
