    SRi - T = Suspension Ride

    I find the ride in my SRi T very harse - espically on the arse end.

    I think I read somewhere the GSi has softer suspension - can this be fitted to the SRi T or can anyone recommend an alternative ?

    Fatter tyres? You mean wider? That would make it harder normally.... stick on some 16" steel wheels with 205's on them, feel much softer!!! Are you running stock tyres?

    I wouldn't go for GSI suspension, unless you get it cheap, stock stuff tends not to last... Look at some "comfort" series of the more popular shocks/spring combos, speak to your local suspension place.... Problem is you are running 40 series tyres on 17" rims, which means quite a hard ride - sidewalls don't compress easily at all so you feel every bump. Whatever you do, don't get eibach springs, i've got some on my rear at the moment and they are pretty hard... MUCH harder than stock... just a warning!

    The SRi-T has a german OPC suspension where as the GSi has a refined suspension for UK roads. I find the SRi-T suspension very good as it tells you whats happening - however wednesday im having my Koni's fitted so its going to get harsh but fun
