Whats everyones opinions on the different lowering springs available for the 182 with cup packs?

Dont want something thats going to be scrapeing the ground or give too harsh a ride.

Just want the car to sit a bit lower. Always had Eibach's before and notice they do two kits for the 182. Is one better than the other?

Apex give a good drop 40mm. Eibach dont drop is as much, i think one kit is 15mm and the other 30mm. Eibach give a better ride, but i went for apex

eibach springs allow use with origonal dampers.....if you go lower then 15mm you have to uprate dampers bearing housings....unless your good friends with your garage..!!

I'm about to lower mine 40mm.

I won't be changing the dampers and tens of other people I know have not either.
