    he doesn't mention a price, only that there's £150 difference between the two setups...

    Koni = good make & will alter your handling noticeably from standard.
    SRiT Setup = presumably cheaper, are oe parts therefore insurers may not add to premium. They will probably be slightly better than standard setup assuming they aren't thrashed to buggery. They're a 20mm drop from standard as well IIRC?

    I guess the main consideration is if the benefits of the better Koni setup outweigh the additional cost mate.

    He doesn't have to mention a price. He said £150 extra. Paying £150 extra for matched, performance springs and shocks over standard SRI springs is a good price for the extra gain he's getting
