Autodelta 147 Suspension Kit


I was looking at the Autodelta supplied 147 sport/comfort kit (dampers and springs) and wondered if anyone on the forum had used it?

I mainly want increased comfort (firm but more controlled, if you know what I mean), less roll, and about 15mm shaved off the height. I find the current 147 setup with 17 inch supersports provides a bit too much body roll and travel for what I consider to a be a sometimes harsh and slightly crashy setup.

I am also curious as to how well the 147 handles a lower ride height in terms of wheel camber and tyre wear. Anyone with a lowered 147 comment on tyre wear?

Has anyone fitted this kit at all? I would be interested to hear as I am investigating suspension options for my 147!

if its autodelta, i'm pretty sure it's not gonna be a bad setup. I was on a website last night that makes 24ct gold springs for the 147 and 156. I'll have to find it lol

Your best bet (as it sounds like you want the best bet) is putting a set of Koni FSDs on, they are designed to work with standard springs, although putting Eibach Pro Kit springs on also improves things (drops the car by about 30mm)
