    The Bilstein dampers have made a massive difference, the car is more responsive now to uneven roads, I think the cheap springs that came with the kit I bought off internet from Germany will have to be changed too. I don't think they are stiff enough as they have bottomed out a few times on the poor roads around my area.
    Cant decide wether to put the original springs back on or buy a good quality set as I like the way the car looks lowered buy 40mm.

        well if it helps the last thing i did before putting my silver gte on the rotisserie was to put standard springs and new standard dampers back on. i honestly couldnt really tell the difference (a negative impact on handling i mean)

        but i do have poly bushes where appropriate (rear beam and rear of front wishbones) new standard everything else, strut brace, quaiffe diff.

          Took the car out for a run twice this week on decent roads and the car is driving ok , just think it takes a while to get used to driving an older car after being used to the smooth ride in a new one.
          As iv'e said I like the look of the car lowered by 40mm so I will keep my eyes open for a quality pair of rear springs to go with the bilsteins as they have made a big improvement to the ride already.
          Cheers,
