Ask yourself "why are they cheap"?
Answers :-
Poor build quality
Dont work properly
Look ****e
Dont last long
They throw you in the first ditch you approach.

Then buy some decent kit that will do what you want it to do.

I wouldn't bother with cheap coilovers, just get a set of springs or a better set of coilovers.

^^^^^ Agree with Vance, Just buy some Eibach's get them fitted for half the price of coilover and your car sits at a nice height.

Re: FK AK STREET Coilovers - Fiat Grande Punto

Was thinking all of the above but the price difference for something half decent is major and also not a great fan of springs as i want to go as low a possible haha .

Anyone know any good websites for coilies then ?

Cheers
Dan.
