    It's burning a hole in my pocket

    OK, I've got some cash which is burning a hole in my pocket and i've decided that the Astra is gonna get a set of 17's or 18's aswell as a full damper upgrade, lowering springs, stainless exhaust system, coupe tinted head lights/rear light clusters and all the nasty black plastic bits colour coded. I'm pretty sure that i'm all decided on the >>Rims<< (I want them in white) but i'm not sure about the suspension kit so i'm looking for input from you fine peeps.

    Eibachs, or Bilsteins.

    DaveDempsey has Billies, I can't remember his verdict on them though.

    Koni's I got them on my car - complete transfomation!! That said eibachs are reknown to be probably the best set up - well for coupes anyway!

    I like the idea of the Koni's personally as they're adjustable but I do here Eibach are very good for springs.

    My SXi setup is way too bouncy and the car doesn't feel safe in a bend so they've got to go within the next 14 days and I want to make sure that i'm buying the correct setup.

    Whatever you go for it'll be great !

    Remember these hold German TUV certificates so definately do what they say on the box.

    koni adjustables would be my choice but my mate has bilstein shocks in his mk3 gsi lookalike very nice ride from them too!

    the guy i bought my corsa off put 60mm gmax springs and shocks not that good too solid and not good for your cds in ur cd player :shock:

    Ive got Koni`s, ok they`re coilovers, but the sus kits are just as good

    If you were just going for springs, Eibach are the best IMO
