    I have Gaz-Shocks on mine the GHA kit... Not cheap mine you, they are around £500 depending on where you get them from.

    I was lucky enough to buy the car with them already on...

    No probs, what size did you go with? oh and did you find out the width of your alloys?

    Yeah I've heard nothing but good things about GAZ and their suspension setups. I'd probably be looking at spending around that much on coilovers anyway to be honest mate. Do you know if I'll need anything else to fit them, e.g. new top mounts?

    In regards to the tyres I did some research and thought ZE912s would be more suited to me, so went for four of those at size 205/55, which came out at £188 inc. delivery

    Not bad with price at all!!! With Top Mounts probley not as your ones will do.

    I was looking into these but then I ant going to take it on a track to get the benifits.

    With suppention I would go for Blitiens Dampers and some lowing springs as it could be cheaper NEVER CUT your springs! Just wanted to let you know that before you think of it.

    Glad I could help! Oh if you think one of posts helped hit the Thanks Button!

    Ah right, good stuff! Hopefully no extra cost will have to be spent buying a set of those then. And don't worry about cutting springs, it's a definite no-no for me. I've heard some right horror stories about doing it and would rather do things the proper way anyway.

    Yeah no worries, I did "thank" you for putting me on the right track in regards to the tyres

    Well in the end I went for Option A(ish), but may be looking at a new set of alloys ready for the summer.

    I actually decided against coilovers and went for KW springs and shocks mate. However, despite ordering them on December 12th last year I'm still yet to receive them - thanks Euro Performance!!
