Finally got my H&R sports kit, white line drop links on with new rear control arms and trailing arms with power flex bushing. Car feels a little on the rough rider side but I like it. What I don't like is how the car seems to spin up more now and tc cuts in a lot more too  :thinking: Any ideas guys?

Thanks

I like the rear to move around a bit. If it moves too much for your liking you can fit a stronger front ARB, I guess.

I'm actually happy with the ride tbh. It looks a little too low at the rear because I've got at least 20kg tools and bits sitting in the boot but soon to get all that out as it's costing me a fortune on fuel and the extra load isn't good.

Looking good man, where did you get the mats? Are they rubber?

Hi, any update since you fitted your H7 LED’s? Also do you have a link? As I’m looking to install some with my Depo projectors
Thanks

hi mate, they're absolutely fantastic and I couldn't drive without them now. 100% brighten up the way forward and I've just linked someone else to the same Leds a few hours ago.

Theses are cheaper but you'll also need canbis error free resistors for them which I forgot to mention or you'll get an error light flag up.

Hi All,

I am new to this forum and recently I have fitted my car with a Koni orange non adjustable and eibach red sport so overall the handling and look are amazing but I had noticed that they are absolutely and ridiculously stiff and hard :surprised:

My question is have I made the wrong decision fitting the orange non adjustable koni that I only have released after buying them or did I wrongly chosen the combination with Eibach+koni?

I hope I am not adding my message into the wrong thread but if anyone could shed some light would be much appreciated

Thanks

Welcome!

I thought the orange koni were meant to be paired with standard length oem springs? Could be wrong but thought I read that when considering them once.... I do believe I heard Eibach are softer than h and r but maybe they're not progressive like h and r and that's what you're feeling?

If I'm wrong about the spring type anyway and you've just fitted them then stick with them a bit longer and you may just naturally get used to them. I've found cars a bit hard riding in the past and then goes a few months and just forget about it and get used to them and feel as comfortable as any car.

Many thanks for the response. Just reading your message again today and driving my car has given me some sort of comfort. Hope in a couple of months I won’t be moaning about the suspension anymore ☺️

All the best
