There seems to be a plethora of options - Eibach, AVO, Apex, plus BB Tuinings own kit, and K-Tecs spring/damper setup - most of which claim to improve the std setup.
I know some of you have tried the AVO setup, mainly via Hillpower, and found them rather hard and too much for the std dampers. So, gotta rule them out...
The Eibachs sound great but dont seem to lower the car much (10-15mm, instead of the quoted 30mm!) and are an expenisve option for relatively little gain in lowering/handling. Theyre a maybe...
I know some of you (Trev_m?) have Apex springs fitted. How do these fair?
And, has anyone tried BB Tunings own springs?
Having driven the std setup round Bedford Autodrome it really does handle rather well straight outa the box. But, its pretty fidgety on the road. Im after a setup which irons out the fidgets, retains a relatively smooth ride on the road and enhances the cars excellent on-track ability. Oh, and itd be nice if these mythiical springs lowered the car around 30mm or so without causing 17s to rub.
Does such a setup exist? I dont really want to flush £200+ for springs/fitting/alignment down the pan on a setup which is hard as nails and makes the car nervous on the limit.
