    Maybe problems start to arise when we go too low which you don't seem to have done, after all we dont drive Corsas do we? The last thing I want to do is sound preachy or patronising so best of luck with your coilies guys and I hope all goes well.

    Not taken in a patronising way at all!
    If we all had the same opinion on things, life would be very boring!

    alright chedda, just wanted to know. Is the ride too stiff for comfort? Or is it quite a pleasant drive, im not buying it for track days, just a 1.8, so need it to look good.

    I actually thot they would be a lot stiffer and I have went from goosed bilstein setup to this so ave went from the best to unknown lol so I thot they'd be really bad but I actually like the ride yes its bumpy but it is coilovers so expect it,

    It have only done 100mile since last sunday so mines probs aint been settled yet so they may get softer but I'd recommend them so far u can't grumble at less than 200 tho mate

    Coilovers of any description are not very 'Mrs Friendly', lol. Cheezy while your coilies are nice any new have you put anything on the threads to stop them corroding? Not sure whats best but I've heard chain lube mentioned, might be best to ask/have a search first. Dont get any on your brakes, mind.

    I just use some spray grease/ lube. Doesn't look pretty but stops them from going furry!
