The drop you have achieved is exactly what I'm after so many thanks for posting the pics. What I'm keen to know though is the ride quality. Is this kit springs only or springs and dampers? And how is the initial damping over small bumps? At high speeds, the damping over the initial 2-3" of travel is what really let's mine down. The car can shift on the road considerably when going over expansion joints on roundabouts etc. That's what I'd like to solve, along with the ride height.

What are your thoughts?
The B12 kit is Eibach Pro springs with Bilstein B8 sprint dampers.
The ride quality over a bumpy B road isnt as comfortable as the SE, but it doesnt bounce and wallow down the road like it used to. It is firm and would feel better with normal tyres on. It doesnt crash over bumps like an M Sport would do though. Turn in is sharp and high speed cornering is amazing. Ive now got so much more confidence when driving the car quickly.

Go for it, its well worth it
