    Do lowering springs make big difference to handling? if so which is best at good price bracket.
    what about full suspension what best for about £300.00

    i have weitec gtn's which are good for everyday use and gives you a bit of height control, wouldn't say they are stiff enough for track use though, but nice for everyday, bit bumpy when i had my 19's on, but i think that was more lack of tyres having sidewalls. am going to get 17 or 18 inch wheels as the car handles better with them on.

    im also interested in lowering my avant, not wanting coilovers thou,
    just a decent solid reliable everyday kit, not cheap. i had bilstein on one of my previous cars, and loved it,

    just wondering if there is a similar kit availible or am i going to be tied to a coil over kit?

    just right in my eyes they did a good job of setting them up when made as you cant adjust the rate of dampening.

    the ride is stiff but nice and its lots better in the conners

    I have KW v3's 3 way adjustable. on full soft at the moment (crappy city roads), low speed (sub 25mph) ride can be hard over potholes etc.....where they come alive is at speed! over 40mph they soak up high frequency hits (think, cats eyes, potholes etc) like they are not there.
    haven't got the height quite right yet, but they give you a great deal of adjustability to control understeer/oversteer balance.

    cornering is a joy now compared to the stock sports susp.

    not cheap but stainless with massive guarantee
