Are the APEX Springs as hard as some people say?

  Whichever has fuel
Completly ruins the handling imo.

Bump skips over the road down country lanes, crashy, shocks bottom out over potholes....

I would personally avoid. (I've had them on two of my clio's)

As above.

Eibach's fitted to my car this weekend after having the Apex for a few thousand miles.

Apex: Make the car look good/ make the car and your fillings rattle!

Eibach: Better body control/ smoother drive/ feels like a different and better car!! :)

I had apex springs on my micra, the ride was so hard I buckled an alloy after hitting a humpback bridge a bit fast. :eek:

It did drift nicely though, rattled me to pieces and motorway journeys were awful

How funny , are they R5 turbo wheels ?

whats going on with the fog light in the rear bumper ?

The fog light was a failed project, I cut the hole out whilst under the influence....

Yeah, the R5 wheels were destroyed last time it snowed, I span out in the snow and clipped a kerb hard enough to bend the wheel almost in half lol. Still they only cost me £35.

I have since sold the pimped out micra and bought my clio lol, I got fed up of people laughing

The apex arent as bad as people make out. They're rock hard, with no body roll, and the handling will feel slightly flat and lifeless, but some people like that. Good ride height on them.

They will create rattles though, you'll get rattles like never before within a few days.

Sums em up perfectly really, tho try adding 17s on top of that for a truly "guess what the car is gonna do next??" experience
