    I had the Eibach Pro Kit before my Eibach Pro Street S Coilovers, and would very highly recommend them. They make the car sit at a nice height, and are great on british roads

    Can't view eBay links at work, but the Pro Kit is supposed to lower it around 28-30mm.


    Pictures of mine on Eibach Pro Kit:

    I would personally go for the Eibach Sportlines. I had them on my EP2, they lower the pre-facelift -50mm and lower the facelift about -25 to -30mm.


    I'm guessing the Facelift EP3 is lower than the Pre-Facelift? Or is it only the EP2 that has two different ride heights?

    The sportline kit on either models lowers more than the pro kit AFAIK. I just like the progressive springs, gives a comfortable ride on a daily drive etc. Think the Sportline is slightly higher spring rates? Would have to check tbh! :Smile:

    Spoon springs lower the car 20mm front and rear, Tein 25mm front and rear. But bear this in mind you will need front camber bolts and rear camber kit to adjust the geometry of the camber, whether to revert back to stock or fast road set-up.

    think abp's current springs are manufactured by eibach anyways, if you go on ctro you'l find plenty of pics on eibach springs, think there 45mm rear and 40mm front.
