    they look a decent enough bit of kit
    and CA are a reputable firm afaik.
    no idea what special machine you might need...but its possible that you'll need wheel spacers...ask CA if you need anything extra to get them to fit

    just got them put on by my local garage they are awsome soak up small and normal sized bumps same as the m sport ones big bumps are a bit vicious because of solid top mounts, but avoid big ones usually anyways. Doesnt loose grip even when was cornering aggressively trying them out. Havnt been able to make it understeer yet (testing them) even though front tyres are on thier way out. If you get them i recommend putting them on thier softest damping settings and turn them on hard when you get to a track thats what im doing. I did need spacers and longer wheel bolts for them.
