    Hi lads, couple of q's

    can I get a set of Eibach lowering springs and have them fitted to the standard shocks on my 330D SE?

    also was thinking of getting a remap as I was looking for more drivability from the car, is there any recommendations?

    Any advice much appreciated cheers!

    i snapped a pinch bolt that goes through the strut to hub, took me 2 days to drill out and use a bolt to put through the newly drilled hole, cost me numerous drill bits, a drill and 2 carbide drills, high tensile bolt
