    If Eibach springs are good enough for the BTCC Astras, then they should be good enough for yours

    The girl friends tigra is on the Ventura / Bilstein setup and i think its a bit on the harsh side. its droped about 35mm but the rear springs look as tho there fully compressed which is giving a harsh ride on the rear. ive been told only good things about ebach springs and thats what ill be going for on my coupe!
