Jesus the arbs have made the handling amazing lol.... well chuffed! Took a round a bout quite fast earlier, well a lot faster than i would normally and she just gripped and gripped like she just wanted to go faster! God knows what the limit would be on her???
I had esp on too btw...

Told you mate.
They make a massive difference, I fitted my rear H&R to mine the other day and it transforms cornering.

How does it ride on back roads (comfort wise)?

What pads did you opt for mate?
 

Compkiler

Not being funny but i just feel like im driving a 50+k car with the performance and handling now...
Its so understated its unreal :)
Think im gona be using a bit more fuel now though as i couldnt stop jut going for a drive earlier lol... was finding the twisties so much more fun!!

On the back roads now she just feels so planted its fantastic! Before i would wobble about a bit and it unnerved me a bit but now she just feels like she wants to go faster round the bends and grip :)

If i tell you the make of the Brake pads, then Alex will disown me lol... I would imagine they have change materials etc since Alex tried them but they feel great and there quiet too with low brake dust :)

OK ....I can guess.

Brakes are like Marmite,and what I like others may hate,so as long as you like them,that's a good result.

I think i know what your talking about
Keep us posted on how you like them when you have them bed in


Have you felt any harshness after fitting the ARB's?

Ok drove to work this morning and the breakers feel great tbh, my old pads were worn quite bad at 10% so the difference is evident!
I will definitely let us know though how they are in a few weeks time!
As for the ride now and harshness, the rides great! Handles like she's on rails literally! I'm defjnately gonna have a track day now i think :)

Compkiller how do you find the b14s?? And have you done all the bushes? Do h+r only for the one set of arbs ? I seen blue ones and black ones ?
 

Compkiler

Registered User
Im not 100% sure how many different Arbs H&R do but i was told my the company i bought mine from that there is only one set.
Mine are black though.
As for the B14's, they are definitely stiff and the car does handle a lot better. I had AP coilovers before the Bilstein B14's and there were very smooth and comfy but a little to soft for me considering i wanted to go to stage 2+!
For me i wanted the car to feel like a sports car and not just a fast cruiser!
The main reason i changed from AP's tho is because i had a warranty issue where all 4 struts had leaked badly and i was getting a really bad knock over bumps. I only had them on for a few months and i had done 4k miles so they went back under warranty to be repaired.
Height wise, they both go low and sit exactly the same on my car.
I bought mine from an Ebay shop in Germany! ;-)

Hope this helps you or someone else out!

Yeah that's where I saw them on eBay German shop,I'm thinking about getting coil overs and arbs as mine feels a bit wobbly/body roll on roundabouts etc gonna have to save for the super pro bushes to though as figure may aswell do the hole lot to save on labour,
 

Compkiler

Registered User
It's definitely made a massive improvement ! Makes me wanna drive her more now lol
Not sure which bushes to go for tho in all fairness! Only one I have ATM is lower mount
 

Smirky

Registered User
Super pro do a hole set for like £540 fast road ones ,thinking extra power stiffer suspension will just kill the standard bushes ? I promised myself only gonna go stage 1 but think I was lying to myself :haha::whistle2:

Lol I dunno how much it works out as if u do em one by one when /if they fail meant to form the handling up too ,dunno if anyone on here runs them ?

If you mean the Superpro bushes...and the ALK





Yes to both......the bushes do help tighten things up a bit,and the ALK does help a bit too.
The entire kit isn't cheap,and I only had it done when the entire suspension was off the car,so it made it a worthwhile proposition.

The old ones were obviously mangled getting them off the car but even then you can see they aren't of the same quality.

 

Smirky

Registered User
Yeah I was going to get them done while having coil overs and arbs fitted,
What u mean by Alk ??yeah I can't imagin oem bushes being able to handle big hp and big torque as they weren't designed too in the first place ,think the kit I found has engine mount etc included
