    well mate i have just got 40mm jamex springs for £70 off ebay fitted on mine with standard shocks and they are bloody brilliant! i was thinking it would make the ride dead firm and horrible but to be honest its better over bumps than on standards and looks better!

    also with the handling there's less body roll now which is helpful...

    so if i were you i would get jamex springs and shocks or jamex coiliovers..

    heres the springs i got:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Jamex-Lowering...item4cea5ef930

    and heres links to the coilovers which is what i would personally go for:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JAMEX-Coilover...item4cefa28969

    you would also need adjustable drop links if youre going lower than 40mm which lmf sell but im sure there will be some on fleabay!

    hope this helps

    As far as I've heard, the B4 shocks are basically an OEM replacement, all be it a bit cheaper.

    I'd personally opt for the eibach setup, which has been tried and tested by many.
