Wave Alfa 159 with Spax -2cm springs

Following this topic https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...i-springs.html I'm very interested to have some feedback about this Spax springs that lower the 159 about 2cm.

Anyone knows about them?
Thanks!

There's a AOer who used Spax. Eibachs drop it to much for me (3,5cm?).

Btw, cheers for the reply.

I've got them; I will take a photo later, but I can't bear to post one where the car isn't clean, so you'll have to wait a little bit!

Is that black, or a very dark blue? Looks a nice colour in the picture, and dark cars in white garages look ace, that's how I fell in love with my first car!

Here's a few photos of mine with the SPAX springs:

Cjohn, thank you for your pictures! It looks ace!

Mine is black, even if on that shot it looks different (phone camera ).
The garage will have the walls in white and gray pavement.

I was looking at the apex springs always used them on my hondas and they were good springs not to hard but firm enough.

How do you find driving with them on??

I find them acceptable; bit harder than standard, but not crashy. I'm not a lunatic driver, so I couldn't comment on whether they perform better.

They look good, wheels/tyres fill the arches perfect

Wish I had the cash at the moment to do something similar with mine... sits nicely when its got a bit of weight in board but does nothing for the economy
