    Anybody want to buy my bilstein B8 plus eibach springs? Only installed in April and done just 5000km. I am going for coil overs. Don’t get me wrong though, the B8 and eibach are unreal in ride and handling. Make an offer.

    Where you located? I'd imagine they would fit my lowered Pedders springs too. I'm on stock shocks, with 20s and low profile tyres, the pain.

    Whats the reason you are selling?? FYI not sure if you noticed however Eibach have released a new set of springs for the VF. Previously they sold one set that claimed to have suited the VE and VF sedan. Now they have added a new set just for VF and changed the description on the original set to VE only. I contacted Eibach and they claim that the new set designed for VF has the same rear springs as the VE ones but the fronts are lower so you get a more even look of approx. 360mm on all four wheels. A bit annoying really but it is what it is. Personally I wouldn't want to go any lower that 370mm so the new Eibachs wouldnt be suitable for me. Id be happy with a set of springs that lower by 20mm on all 4 so that I can keep the stock shocks happy and not run the risk of scraping the undercarriage. Maybe Kings or Pedders?

    Thanks for the tip on the new VF eibach but a little pissed that I was sold what they said were VF springs and yes, was thinking of coilovers only because of the way the front sit. Mine at at 380 front and 360 rear. Otherwise everything else is brilliant including ride and handling so I will just replace the front springs with the supposedly new VF pro kit and it should look perfect. Cheers.

    Yes and me too, however I suspect some other manufacturers are also making the same error. Pedders for example, their Sportsrider springs are being advertised to suit both VE and VF.

    Anyway, this is what my rig looks like now with S1 Redline rims all round.

    I have not used the new ones, only the previous model. The new one uses the same rear spring but the fronts are lower. Here are some pics with the new model fitted (supplied by Eibach).

    Plenty of rake on those two cars, I think they've done a good job, sitting the rear up a bit is a classic look that's still the best way to go if you're going to be regularly carrying passengers.

    Belated thanks for the feedback Paulie81.

    BTW, whom lowered those two vehicles pictured? Where are they located?

    Hey sorry for the late reply. I have no idea. The photos were provided to me by John at Eibach. Im guessing through one of their stockists. If you contact Eibach they will recommend workshops in your area.
