    As title, needing to know what drop i need to go for, Im looking at the Eibach Sport kits which state it lowers the front 45-50mm and rear 35-40mm, has anyone got these if so would be greatfull if you post a picture, or SECONDLY if you have any 45-50mm drop springs of any make can you post a picture.

    Thirdly even if you have the Eibach Pro Kit what lowers 30mm all round can you post and state, just so i get an idea, But dont think this is going to be enough.

    Not wanting coilovers this time around as the car will be a set height so pointless.

    a 30 drop will land you somewhere near to the sport suspension height

    I went with the Pro kit, gives a claimed 30mm drop front and rear, which on my SE is pretty believable.

    The Sportline offers a 50/40mm drop from memory, for me that would be too much as I like my cars to be OEM low but thats all.

    Here's a pic in case you've never seen it :whistle2:

    The quoted drop is from standard height, so a 30mm drop would only see the Sport drop 10mm or so. In which case you'd need the Sportline kit which will give you a 30/20mm drop.

    The Sportline kit will give you a nice drop.. I would also add B5 spring perches as i am also using eibach but found the front was not low enough. The B5 perches will give a nice 10-15 extra drop at the front and makes the car look level.

    Mine on eibach and AP's at rear along with B5 front spring perches.

    I've got some B5 spring perches for my TDI sport, i've had them for 6 months but i've still not had them fitted.There meant to lower the front 10/15mm more than standard B6 ones.My only worry is whether the front will look lower than the rear if i fit them as my rear end is on standard sport springs..???????
