How low can you go?

And I was worrying about the drop in ride height I will get from the Prodrive springs. I am obviously a softlad.

Default Two spotted in Prosport today....

MickP - Picked mine up from Prosport today after its 1000 mile oil change.

Saw yours I think? (black, euro spec?, silver BBS, tinted windows, red rear lenses, etc!)

Pete measured the ride height on mine (std) & yours - straight after install the prodrive springs lower the height by 20 mm.

Pls post your impression of the springs!

The other STI there was a white JDM twin scroll - I think they have plans for it

Is it just me or does that look like a 100% track car??

Just found out why my steering was so light and iffy. The fronts were pumped to 35 psi and the rears 32 psi!!!! Ok its a diesel but still, thats hard...

Still thinking about the Prodrive springs though......

Yep Prodrive springs on now guys and they make quite a difference. Did some twisty roads on the way back from Elvington yesterday and the body roll has gone. The ride is of course that bit firmer but i reckon Prodrive have got it bang on.

PPP & Springs have made a huge difference.

That looks great. My car is booked in for Wednesday to have the PPP and springs fitted. You have just made my night Mick. Reading your thoughts on them I am even more excited. It looks great too. I think I might get some 19" wheels for mine next, I am not a fan of the Prodrive GT2 though.

Prodrive say the springs give a 15mm drop but in reality it's more like 20mm. Just about right IMHO.

The car is firmer but not over the top. Does make quite a difference on the twisty roads
