Speak to the guys which fitted Eibach -25mm's springs... All of them say they improve the ride, giving you more comfort!! So you don't have to wait

For a while I thought it was MY car, looks exactly the same including wheels (mine is deep bronze though) :P

Mine is a 2.2 diesel and will be heading to ABP for Koni and Eibach (15mm only) on Saturday. Will post photos so you can compare.

Update: Wheel Refurb

So she has gone in to have her shoes fixed

Noticed some paint bubbling after her 1st wash and wasn't impressed but have to say the peeps at Stuart Graham Honda have come up trumps again. Called em last week and they had a look and they agreed to have a full refurb job done of all me 4 wheels

Pick her up tomo night and hopefully will post some more pics of my lovely refurbed blades @ the weekend

In the meantime I am stuck with a 59plate insight

Update: The Stealth Bomber is reunited with Pilot

Just picked her up and have to say she looks sweeter than sweet....I know it was only 2 days but having driven her for a week and a bit I found myself suffering from withdrawal symptoms
