    Which Suspension is best?!?

    Hi all,

    i want to lower my car & not just change the springs, i'd prefer to buy a kit with dampers included. I only want to drop by 25-30mm as i believe the ride gets alot bumpier if dropping more than this(is this true?).

    I'm personally looking to spend £300-450 for the whole car. currently im looking at bilstein sprintline kit 30F/20B drop. (reputable brand only reason 4 this choice)

    Anybody had any good/bad experiences with any brands.

    Cheers all, Robin

    oh btw - 1.8 sport 3dr hatch Mk4

    Lotus use Bilstein/Eibach combo's, and they are generally considered to make the best handling cars out there.

    The only reason I would go elsewhere is for continual adjustment - a la coilovers.
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!
