I'll give you guys a review of the Eibachs but I get the 18" Krypton wheels with Pirelli P Zeros at the same day (now on 17" wheels with Falken winter tyres) so the impressions will be a mixture of the new tyres and the lowering.

Just got an email from my dealer that he isn't allowed to fit the Eibachs because of the Xenon lights??

Is anybody able to clarify?

Depends how the auto leveling is connected. On the ep3 it was to one rear camber arm(not sure about name).
It wont make a huge difference I think? Better get a second opinion.
If you choose not to do it I can buy them off you later

So according to Honda Austria I can't get my Civic with Xenon headlights approved for street use when I use the Eibach lowering springs. If somebody wants them I'm open for PM! They are totally new, never used Eibach springs for the 9th gen Civic!

I don't think Honda is in authority to approve cars for street use. Did they say this move is going to void your warranty? If not, it's just the MOT issue, IMHO.

On a positive note I got my Krypton wheels today and I am quite happy with the look even without the lowering springs: http://www.civinfo.com/forum/user-re...ml#post1552285

The problem with oem alloys is the offset. If i was modding a 9th gen i would be looking at 8.5" width with et40 and at least a 40mm drop. Apologies for stepping in!

The oem aren't wide enough to fill the arches am they sit into the arches a little bit so wider wheel and offset would bring the wheel out a little bit further and give the 9th gen a more aggressive look
