    You'd be better off with Eibach springs rather than Irmschers - slightly lower and much cheaper, if buying new. Either will transform the handling over standard ones.

    Check the 'for sale' section - Rusty's got some Irmy coupe springs for sale (second hand)

    Ive not tryed the eibachs, but mines fitter with the irmsher springs. I think there great! My mate who had a 1.8 sxi drove mine the other day and comented on how much more planted the car felt. He went round a blind bend a little quick to find the exit was blocked, he stood on the breaks and couldnt belive the car behaved itself. Whilst the drop is only just 30mm, these springs have been properly developed to work with the chassis and they really do, unlike some cheaper aftermarket springs. If Rusty is selling his for £100 you must snap them up!
