    There is a massive amount of people that have coilovers from ebay that they have been getting for around the £150 mark there is also a huge thread on it somewhere.

    Though given the amount of issues with them (on here and the rest of the Internet), I'm much happier that I went for £160 of Jamex -40mm springs with matching shocks

    Not what I paid but someone here I think recently got a set for that price, possibly an offer, unsure. Performance3000 was the supplier if I recall. Wish I got mine altogether, springs were £55 delivered (sale) and shocks cost me £169 delivered.

    I've queried this with the guy myself and he said they would have some by the end of last month, spoke to him a week or so ago and still nothing, so I'm thinking not.
