Eibach Springs/Bilstien B12 Suspension Upgrade

I'm getting my new Brera fitted with the Eibach springs and Bilstien B12 Coil over Dampers next week. Anybody had any experience of this upgrade? My last Brera was upgraded with just the springs and I was very happy with that. Lowered the car slightly and seemed to improve handling.

Getting it done at Autolusso who are powder coating my silver wheels with the anthracite finish.

Autolusso gave the car a good look over and said it was in good condition, which is always nice to know...

How hard are B12s compared to B6s? I have B6s on the 2.5 and it is proper hard. I like the new FSDs in the Shedwagon more. No idea how the 159 will cope.

I will be able to tell you how they feel compared to standard dampers in a week or so...

Believe the b12 is simply the kit with Eibach pro kit springs and and b6 shocks

Derick I want to fit our slightly modified B4's with Eibach springs as I think the B6's & B8's are too hard for the Brera or 159, leave it to me

After a bit of fiddling about with Ned at Autolusso I finally sorted out the suspension. Here is how things look now...

Looking good DC How do you like the modified B4s?....love mine, not much firmer than stock but without any pitching or wallowing.
