Hörmann motorsport?

Anyone got any experience with Hörmann motorsport? Se this link: Hoermann Motorsport

They seem to be selling high quality things for Lancia mostly, but I have seen a picture of a modified 156 with skirts and spoilers from them. The funny thing though, is that both my springs (and possibly shocks) and my exhaust is stamped "Hörmann". The springs are as stiff as stiff gets. It makes the entire thing handle as a Go-cart and lowers the car very much ( I rekon I have about 7cm from the sump to the ground).

If anyone knows what this may have cost and so on, I'd much appreciate it!

I had a Hormann motorsport quad pipe exhaust on my first GTV v6 and to be honest it sounded rubbish. It wasn't cheap either (£600 IIRC back in 2001)

I am not sure what their other stuff is like.

Gtv V6

I can chime in with a mention of their Uno Turbo body kit, easily the best quality of the available options. I've seen these on several Unos in real life. The flared wheel arches included side strakes like a Testarossa. As usual with body kits, it really required careful fitting and painting, plus a suitable set of wheels, to get the proper effect.

I think this principal applies for any other modifications too - the full effect will require all the parts - such as, an uprated anti-roll bar that's capable of compressing the stiffer springs (as it tries to lift the inside wheel). Maybe the exhaust would have sounded better in conjunction with the full set of other Hormann silencer boxes? Just a thought.
