Finally able to get some photos up of mine back this week, hasn't stopped raining!! so dirty unfortunately!! never been this dirty ever!

Lots of stress fitting, many seized bolts and pinch bolt issues also the front suspension arms took alot longer than expected to replace, kept the car in 2 days, she put up a fight i think

the new kit opened - kw st x coilovers



How she sits



The front a bit closer



Still settling, handles amazingly well!, not too harsh over bumps either, getting used to the drop as well still clears a low kerb

That's a nice ride height

How does the ride compare to before? "not too harsh" implies its stiffer than before but still acceptable?

Thatís a nice drop and sits very well

The drop looks about the same as mine....the front will probably settle another 5mm in the next couple of weeks.

Are the rears in the lowest setting?

Thanks! there is still room to go lower, I said about a finger gap for now should be okay

It's a tad stiffer but perfectly acceptable for ride comfort not much in it tbh over standard
