Re: The GP

Doesnt look like much of a difference with the Eibach's fitted, or is it just the picture?

You got any other plans except the GSR?

Nice looking motor skitz

Re: The GP

yeah the springs do take awhile to bed! Give or take a week, i would have imagioned it to be a bit lower to start though! Get another member to with a non sporting, ie not lowered to measure the distance between the arch and wheel and you can compared! Might have the wrong spring ie for a sporting so the tension will be wrong!

looks mint though mate, how about some sporting side skirts and and some fog lights to finish her off

check the guides sure theres a guide how to fit them... nto sure were to get them from! Ask the guy how started the thread were he sourced his? Shouldnt be to hard, but if you not confidnt get a independant garage around you way to do the work should be to expensive or time consuming
