You may have read that one of my front springs has decided to snap in two, so now I'm going to go ahead with plans to overhaul the suspension. I don't want coilovers if they're going to be too firm for daily driving, so I'm looking for a springs and shocks set-up with around 30mm lowering that'll handle well when pushed but still be usable on Scotland's rough, uneven, cracked roads. The problem/questions I've hit is knowing how much value is lost going down the price scale: 1. Are H&R 25mm lowering springs worth an extra £56 (30%) over KW 30mm ones, which are another £35 more than Eibach 25/20mms? 2. Are Bilstein B8s worth their £55 premium over Koni FSDs? 3. Is a KW 30/25mm springs and shocks kit as bad as the £380 saving over B8/H&R combo suggests? It's not that I don't have the money, it's just that I'd rather save a few hundred pounds if the performance and ride quality gains are out of sync with the extra expenditure. With Neuspeed ARBs and Forge tie-bars, I'm looking at £1300+ just for parts so want to be sure it's money well spent.
