Hi, I've just put the FSD & Eibachs onto my 20v sportwagon. FANTASTIC! There's no other way to describe them. Like you, I was bothered about the car being lower & I'm already on 17"s so didn't want to stiffen the ride, but when Ferdie took my old springs off, they were tired so he recommended replacement at the same time. The Eibachs were alot cheaper than standard Alfa springs, so I took the plunge. Never have I made such a good decision! The ride is much more supple than standard over small bumps, but taughter over larger ones- the FSDs work fantastically well. The lowering hasn't prooved to be a problem either, I just take it easy over speed humps, but I largely did that before anyway. I can still carry 4 & a load with only the occaisonal tyre rub at the rear so no problem there, but the way the car corners just has to be experienced to be believed, it's such a huge inprovement over standard. Miles better than my girlfriend's A3 2.0 tdi sport & way more comfortable too. The thing no-one has mentioned here though is (& get this!) my fuel economy has gone up by more than 5%, I'm now easily avaeraging 43mpg, whereas I struggled to get 40 before! I'm not sure whether it's because the car is slightly lower & more level on the road, therefore more aerodynamic (all my driving is fast A road & M'way) or whether you just carry more speed through corners so you are not using as much acceleration coming out of them, probably a combination of both, but I never expected that & no other changes have been made to the car. Go for it, you wont regret it! Does anyone know how I can get the rest of the car to hang together so I can enjoy it more?!!
