yeah its 30mm all around :) wanting to go coils in summer tho
Personally, I'd say there was no point in fitting coilovers, to a 1.8 - total overkill for street use, and pointless on a track due to the BHP available ...

The good new is, it seems that you already have half (or more than half) of a good suspension update ...

Assuming that your lowering springs are the 'progressive' type (e.g. - like those from Eibach or Tein), then all you need now are better shocks ...

And, adding shocks will be damned sight cheaper than migrating to coilovers ! ...

I fitted Koni FSDs - only option I could find in 2009 - there are now a few more possibilities knocking around, but the Konis seem to get the best reviews ...

Yeah Eibach is what I got so maybe I'll just go with shocks instead. :)

And the money you save, will go a long way to pay for some of the following (for example) :-
  • Rear Spoiler ('Trunk' or 'Lip' - no "CTR-alike" parts !)
  • Wheel spacers - 10mm to 20mm - depends on wheel
  • Colour coding the existing plastic trim - not staining
Alternatively, you should perhaps be looking at a brake upgrade first - disks, pads, hoses, fluid - lots of aftermarket choice now - better and much cheaper then OEM ...
