    I think Eichban (wrong spelling) do one. I know that regal supply them.
    Can't comment on ride comfort but I have koni coilovers on my coupe and they are very good considering how low it is

    FK uses Koni dampers. The proper stuff is like 800 quid but I'm not messing when I say its proper stuff. Simply lovely. Speak to Dave at BAT Motorsport on 0151 709 8585.

    yeah thats what Regal told me today! thanks!!

    what would be best for comfort coilovers or progressive springs only, such as Eibach/H&R???

    will a 30mm drop make the wheels rub (std vaux turbo 17's) or make it scrape over speed ramps?


    what i liked about the coilovers is that you can choose your own ride height but once i set them i wont adjust them again so maybe it would be a waste of money??

    all i want is to give a little better road holding but not to compromise too much comfort!

    sorry for all the questions but you hear so many different views from different suppliers!

    any help will be much appreciated!

    It sounds like you just want some good lowering springs to drop around the 30mm mark. And maybe some quality dampers.

    Eibach springs on your standard dampers will help you. If you want any more you can get the Koni dampers and set them to soft. Set soft they will be very comfortable, and give a futhur increase in handling.

    Coilovers are either for people that want the very best handling so can set perfect weight ballance up, normally track. Or people that just want the look and lower as far as they can regardless of anything else.
