    Eibach coilovers and latest mods (56k warning!)

    Thought I would post up some pictures of the recent mods. Over the last few months I have made the following changes:

    BBS 17 inch rims

    German Plates

    Opel Front Grill and Rear Badge

    Eibach Coilovers

    Remap

    De-cat

    Veccy C

    BMC CDA

    160 Clocks

    The coilovers are not as low as they can go, but the ride and handling is perfect and I dont want to ruin it! Here are some photos as it was and how it is after the mods:


    Before:






    After:

















    And a pic of the new oil housing which split the other day spilling the oil everywhere over the A428!



    The car does look lower than it does in those pics - I will try to get a decent side on shot later when my housemate wakes up and moves his car!

    Next plans are bodywork but I need to get all the bits first and it is proving expensive! Just have to be patient.

    Comments welcome, good and bad

    Good work, loving the BBS rims. Colour coded skirts, handles and bump strips next?

    Is it easy to adjust the coilovers? Is it easy to leave left side and right side with the same height? As Eibach Pro-kit don't really give a nice lowering I'm now thinking in this coils. But it's very expensive for a 23 year old portuguese lad...

    looking good matey... the new rims and the lower stance really makes a difference.

    Have you had you necessary adjustments done to cater for the new dials... im assuming you had 140 ones before.
