Seicento/Cinquecento non sporting lowering suspension to a sporting

Hi all,

Are there any difference between the standard cinq-seis and the sportings suspension? (apart from the -20mm sporting height )

Would a standard cinq lowering kit fit on a sporting sei?

no difference in the springs or the actual strut.. i think the only difference comes from the top mount if the sporting has EPS

If the kit does not have a front anti roll bar I'd fit one, given you will have the front up anyway.
If funds run to a sporting Cinq or Sei gear box I'd get one, but check the drive shafts on your car match the box you are getting. The acceleration of the sporting is the 'cogs'.
But check with your underwriter as you car will be 'non standard' sporting...
