    Chris.
    I can't believe the speed of that postage!! I've gotta leave you some feedback on the new eBay style thingy and I'll also pop it on the open thread at the top of your Madeone vendor forum thingy.

    I was ganna take pictures of before front and rear, installation (not detailed step by step) and then after shots if you wanted them for the website. I will also take some with my summer wheels when there done
    Cheers again Chris

    He was the one that signed for them!! There were a few little comments like "so will they lower the car then (fall well know they probably will)", Me " there are adjustable yeah (meaning, yes it will be getting decked)". To be far though he is always (bar a few occasions) right.............

    Cant wait to get them fitted now

    When are yours getting fitted Seb?

    Hijack away mate, the thread has served its first purpose. Like you said, pointless opening a new thread

    The only bits that confuse me on them is - The bottom bracket (black section with the bracket). Does this get srewed right up until it is tight. Or do i measure the length of the original unit and lock it off with the lower ring? Also there are little grub screws within the two adjustment rings, do these get locked off when desired ride height is achieved (seems asthough they'd damage the thread)? Looking at the adjustment instructions they dont and the adjustment ring just gets a battering with a hammer to lock it tight?

    I havent even seen them mate as they got delivered straight to steve23002 The car was at the Garage anyways getting all fluids changed so thought might as well get them fitted whilst the car was up on ramps Speaking with Steve yesterday he said the look and feel was very high quality! Sorry mate but cant comment just yet on how it all works, maybe Chris can fill in the blanks....?

    Not jealous at all Seb. Get some pics up as soon as you get the car back
    May you could do me a favour, on picking up your car, could you have a word with Steve. See if it's an easy installation. I've got a mate who's fitted a far few sets of coilovers but wouldn't mind getting in on the work n knowing what to do. Cheers mate

    I will speak with Chris as well, see if he can shed some light
