Brera 2.2 SV "S"

2.2 S Spring and Dampers: before and after

Had the S springs and dampers fitted to my 2.2 over the weekend and given all the threads on springs/dampers recently, I thought some people would be interested to see the results: see below for some before and after shots.

Visually, I can notice naff all difference, bar perhaps a very minor drop at the rear. That's fine with me; what I really wanted it for was the improved handling round the B-roads and you certainly get that. As many others have said it's a lot flatter and feels more stable. The lack of nosedive under braking is particularly noticeable.

I should also say I bought the kit used from a fellow forumite, so I'm not expecting there to be any "bedding in." I'll take another pic in a few weeks to double check and post back here.
