    Just had my Eibach's and alloys fitted

    .... and i must say, its worth spending the extra on some quality springs. They feel similar to standard but firmer. They aren't harsh at all like the usual Spax and Apex springs i've had on previous cars.

    Had the turbo wheels put on my coupe rather than the standard 6 spokes, with a plan to put some 18s on within the next couple of months.

    Happy days!

    Good to hear your opinion on the Eibachs, I've got some on order, I was concerned they would be to harsh and skip around the road, its the firm ride I want more than lowering as I find the Astra suffers with excessive body roll on corners.

    I was just going to get some Apex springs but then the guy at Demon Tweeks said that there really is a massive difference in handling between manufacturers.

    It looks lower, but i think they settle in after a few thousand miles, so should go lower.

    Cost £139 including next day delivery.

    Highly recommended, as are Demon Tweeks!!

    Tried PVD but there was no answer

    What the drop difference in the springs? Mine are 45mm front and 30mm rear.

    Ordered in with the group-buy, £100 from Joerg at OPC Neinhaus.
