    spax aren't bad for the money but PI are crap..

    spend a little bit extra and get eibach's.. it'll be worth it mate

    get eibach sport springs..

    they'll drop the car about 50mm rear and 40mm front..

    i've got the pro springs that claim 15mm front drop and 35mm rear.. but in reality its more like 30mm front and 40mm rear..

    I've got the pro springs and the ride quality is excellent, hardly changed at all going from standard springs to the eibachs..

    The sport springs will give a slightly harsher ride as they lower the car more.. my mates got a seat leon with sport springs and the ride's still good though!

    Where as with PI springs the ride would be terrible! very stiff and crashy, had them on a previous car.. never again! you do get what you pay for with suspension equipment thats for sure
