My Eibachs came with the TÜV papers included in the box...

This reseller has the TÜV papers as a pdf download (look for "Gutachten" on the right side of the screen) Eibach Tieferlegungsfedern Honda Civic VIII (06-) Dreitrer (FN) Pro-Kit

This is for the 25mm springs for the CTR, maybe you want different ones, but they have the TÜV for all the Eibachs.

The 25mm springs are for the diesel 2.2, the CTR/petrol options are 15mm and 30mm.

Well yeah, coilovers are adjustable so obviously you'll get whatever drop you want with them

I assumed you were talking about the eibach springs that everyone seems to go for here.

Ok then the resellers got things wrong... they're selling 25mm for the CTR as well.

I could always be wrong, but those are the options I've heard bandied around for eibachs.

[Magnus] - hi there ! ...

I don't think you need any documentation for lowering the car here - it's widening the track that is mentioned in what I read ...

So, there shouldn't be a problem with the springs, but you could fail the EU \ EØS inspection, with the wider wheels ...

I've got 15mm hub spacers fitted, which would be a 'fail' with the Summer wheels, but just squeaks through with the narrower Winter wheels (my test month is December ) ...

And my insurance company weren't concerned about anything I've had done - all declared - no cost impact ...

p.s. - Trondheim "meet" in the Summer ? - look in the meetings section ...
