Lowered the FN2 today

The rain held off today so I managed to get my Eibachs fitted. I went for the 30mm drop from ABP. They were pretty straightforward to fit, the only issue I had was getting the drop links off (had to use a hacksaw). I'm over the moon with how the car looks now and the ride is totally transformed. Anyway here's some pics

Before



After








Oh also fitted some fog light covers from Wanner69, these are great

That looks great . Coding my wheels black next, and then a gp kit, just had my bonnet and roof carbon wrapped.

Looks badass, Stu. Liking the GP kit, rims and tints, too. Works really well in Silver

I've just placed my order with MSW for the 25mm kit. Good to know it wasn't too tough to fit. I'm gonna pick up some drop links while I'm waiting for them to turn up.

How's the ride comfort with the 30's compared to stock?

Looks good! When I did mine I had a problem with the droplinks. Took the Ngle grinder to them - the actual spring change was straightforward apart from that! FRS Is all you will need for the. Imports transformation.

Good idea, they're probably in need of replacement and means you can just have at them without worrying when they fail to come off nicely

Thanks fella, it's probably best to get new drop links instead of fannying on trying to get the old ones off, especially considering they don't cost much. You can get them even cheaper off eBay, I just needed them urgently
