    Hi all can anyone say what the difference is between the standard spring, heavy load spring and the m-sport spring? I have been told the sport spring lowers the car, can anyone say by how much? I have a heavy load spring on n/s and a standard spring on o/s rear. My front end has what I would say a big gap between front tyres and the wing, I have genuine mv1 wheels, thinking of putting lower springs on the car dropping it by 35mm, I am not after the car being on the floor but would like a stiffer ride through the corners ,

    i can thouroughly recommend eibach springs
    decent lowering and no loss of ride comfort
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
