    Shock's and spring's. I made the move from coilover's (ap) back to eibach pro-street. Coilover's are ok if you want to run the car at different ride hight's (fiddly). Shock & spring's are a fit and forget item, i'm pleased with the eibach. Price's start from £400 > .. Buy a good setup, not cheap and cheerfull ****.

    All depends what you want out of the kit really and how low you want to go?

    I've got Eibach pro sport spring kit + pro sport dampers I've got to admit the ride is fantastic it's not as hard/uncormfortable as thought it would be, it has definately changed the stance of the car it looks a lot more sporty and definately more stable. I would say that this a good set-up if you use the car regularly and want the mix of sports ride with relative comfort.

    Very good, they're from the same family as KW so basically the starter version of the Variant range.

    I was running AP's, the ride was good and the handling at high speed's was very good, but i alway's felt like the rear of the car looked to low no matter what i did. I was feed up with messing about with the ride hight. I made the jump to eibach and have not looked back. The AP's are very good value for money .
