Finally lowered suspension sorted out and a glimps with the sideskirts fitted!

Hi guys... Well after much time mownin and grownin at eibach ive finally got my suspension kit sorted out, but at more of a cost to me I cant fault eibach customer services those there a great bunch and a thanks to the guys at jabba sport for changing the springs over for me (yes i know theyre an vw/audi/skoda workshop) but after much chatter with eibach these guys were there number 1 dealership around my area and with the problems i had before i thought it best i go with eibach recomendation!

To cut the story short ive also had my set of abarth sideskirts fitted well quite a while back but have got round to posting any pics; also wotch this space as ive been umemployed for a while and my carbon fibre boot build is practically finish just waiting for my old man to get on with spraying it

Here a list of the current modifications:
Colour Coded Rub strips and grilles
Abarth Sideskirts
Brio CAT1 Alarm upgrade
Eibach Sportline suspension kit 50mm rear/45mm front drop
17" Fiat Claw alloys
Also loads of ice - wait for the install pic's hopefully to be posted soon!

Futur plans (when employed,lol!):
MS Design Rear Splitter
Full through custom exhaust system, with twin tailpipes
Front splitter (still un-decided, choices, choices!)
and maybe black mesh front bumper!! Although i like it all color coded!

Please give me your opinions!

P.s. sorry havent had chance to clean the car, too busy wotch 'lost' lol!











Oh and i'd just like to say any of you thinkin for going for eibach suspension kit do it, there absolutely awesome mines got the sportline 50mm kit fitted! No problems with speed bumps rubbing or anything! And it makes the car handle like an absolute dream

Mine's only been fitted a few days so probally has settle dropped fully yet!

Ps. Sorry bout the pics quality, took on me mobile phone!

Looking good mate, stilo's should roll out the factory that low, nice to see someone else who's branched out to more that the normal 30mm drop

Thumbs up Re: Finally lowered suspension sorted out and a glimps with the sideskirts fitted!

Very very nice!!!

I had talked myself out of getting sideskirts fitted but after seeing these pictures I definitely want them again now!!!!!DAMN!!!! I also think the skirts only look right when the bumper strips are painted (like yours) So I suppose i will have to get that done too!!! DAMN DAMN!!!

Just out of interest how much did it cost to get bump strips painted??

Nice job I think you should have left the grills black, but who cares?!

It looks very nice and I think the colour coded grill suits the car

Looking good.

Still not sure about having Abarth badges on "Non-Abarth" cars - but hey, let's not start that whole discussion again!

So is that 50mm all round, cos mines 50/40 and from those pics the rear dont look any lower than mine, i know its only 10mm but still would of thought it would show?

Re: Finally lowered suspension sorted out and a glimps with the sideskirts fitted!

the eibach sportline are 50mm/45mm, the whole difference 5mm i shudnt fink ull be able to tell much! I dont fink the springs have drop fully yet, havent measure to check but the garage advised it would take a 2/3 weeks for them to settle in properly and seens as im not working the car has just sat on the drive! But i did have my bootbuild in the ova day and my second battery sits were the spare wheel use to be, on top of that my install is quite heavy and drops the backend down quite a bit more! Im finkin about gettin some coilovers to adjust the front so there even! But we'll have to see how it goes!

With reference to the grilles you either love em or you hate em! Simple as...theyve grown on me and i love em! But i fink im ready for a change and black mesh and a splitter are on the cards!

EDIT: and with reference to the abarth badges comment i cudnt agree more, i dont wana badge my car up as an abarth cos its not! The side skirts cum with the recess in and i cudnt be arsed to have it filled in and havin an empty hole there wud basically look pants!
