    My advise is buy the springs and do a deal with a friendly local garage or mate and do it as its 2 hours tops to do it and about 60 quid labour
    That was a so called friendly garage near me in Brum
    Looks like they just shot their last load
    140:00 my backside lmao
    I hear rears are a cinch
    But fronts not so easy

    Got it down to 100.00 from my old mate who comes to your house
    He's a scooby genius amongst others
    Highly recommend him to any of you on here
    Plus you get to watch him work and learn
    No where near as expensive as even a local garage
    Is it true I will definitly need another 4 wheel allinement
    Because they are over 100.00 for these beauties

    Ok now I see PI springs at 130.00
    Eibach at 150.00
    PI say theres lower 40 F 30 R
    Eibach say 30 F 25 R
    As mine has M Sport suspension it is lower from factory
    So are these drops from that or standard springs
    I am on 19" wheels what difference does that make
    Thanks people for any answer I am grateful

    Eibach is superior and well respected-i would go with these

    yes you will need to laser align after a few weeks of initial settling with new springs

    Pretty sure it would be from standard suspension, I have m-sport spring and quite honestly the German coppers (3 Of Them!!) that stopped me the other week were having kittens over the clearance that I have on my set-up.

    You need to let us know what tyres you are running and the offset and width of the wheels if you want a concise answer! 19 inch wheels do not Automatically mean that you will be running with a larger rolling circumference!

    It's worth mentioning that the AC Schnitzer springs are made by Eibach, so they're going to be 'as near as dammit' to the original ACS's.
    £152 is too much delivered - I paid under £130 from Demon Tweeks - look for the cheapest set on Ebay, and Demon Tweeks will better their price. Eibach No. is 2067-140 for your car.
    Also, £100 fitted? Do you only want rears, or all 4? Fot all 4 that's prob about right. For the rears - it's a half hour tops (£40?).
