Suspension £150'ish

Zorst £200 - £300

Induction - ???

ARBs are by far the best mod you can do,more of an affect on the driver/car than zorst and lowering.

Was not that long ago I was in the same position as yourself what to do first. So after reading the forum I went for:

Pi Springs lowered car by 30 to 35mm

Pipercross induction kit

Magnaflow stainless steel exhaust system

Arbs

The first three cost me under 450 quid. I know there is lots of discussions on what induction, zorst etc but the sound I get from this combination is great & adds some performance. Not sure what as I have not had it back on the rolling road. The springs aid to better handling & the car looks ten times better. Still to fit the ARB's but I expect handling to improve yet again.

Anyway my thoughts, good luck.

Cheers

I get most of the work done by my local car accessory shop "Checkpoint" here in Aberdeen. They have not let me down, good prices for supply & fitting in their shop.

Cheers

Slight mistake on the costs meant to say got springs, zorst & induction for under 600 quid.

Could I ask where u all get ur ebiach springs from?

I bought mine from a small motorshop near me. I think some bought theirs from Germany? The TTE springs are the same anyway.

part no. for Eibach springs: 8259.140

Although I only had mine for a couple of months, I thought that they were excellent. No noticeable difference to ride quality although handling had improved slightly and the car looks much better lower.
