Well, in a strange turn of events, quite a backward move,
I found myself not being happy with the eibach springs, ride height not low enough at the rear constantly bugging me & id started to simply not drive it as I wasn’t enjoying it.
(1465 miles in 8 months)
In an attempt to ‘enjoy it more’ I bought the BBS wheels & Pirelli tyres for it, but these seemed to add to the problem of the car not sitting low enough for me, as the lower offset & extra width pushed the wheels out further.
I regretted the mods & decided rather than mess about with other different mods, that I’d put it back to how it was originally, so I removed the BBS Wheels after just 54 miles, they were cleaned & sold off at a huge loss, the eibach springs were removed & the stock springs put back in, the car had a geo/alignment at Awesome GTI & its been driven & enjoyed every day since.
clearly I’m getting old & am valuing how good the standard car is over aesthetics & mods, oddly, now that the ride height is standard again, the height doesn’t bother me .. how bizarre
ive also removed the clubsport S discs/pads/silver calliper plates to sell on to recoup some of the money I’ve lost on the wheels & my eibach springs are up for sale too,
both having only covered 1000 miles and are all absolutely like new condition wise
I bet you wasn’t expecting that 😆😂🤣
