    Do you mind me asking how much that set you back? Thinking about changing my springs/dampers in due course, but my choice will be influenced by cost. PM me if you'd rather not post it on here.

    Do we do it for that reason though? Although adding value would always be nice!

    Yeah, exactly. I'm jostling with that one in my mind too. How long will I keep the car? I love it to bits and it'll need new dampers in due course anyway, so it's likely to be a long term investment rather than a throw-away modification. Hmm, sounds like I'm trying to convince myself into a purchase...

    Once everything was fitted I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed.
