Yeah, its a trade off between lowered looking better and tbf cornering better but standard is better to live with in general

Had the chance to drive a pre facelift this afternoon with original suspension on and after doing that i am going to be fitting original coil springs on and removing the eibachs 


I've only experienced stock springs. Was the difference in ride that noticeable?

I can confirm the Eibachs with standard shocks are less comfortable than standard, I do believe that Eibachs with Bilstein B8 dampers (in other words the Bilstein B12 kit) are roughly as comfortable as stock and far better for cornering.

Is it possible to buy new OEM suspension? Is it possible to buy just OEM springs? What are the prices compared to Bilstein B12 kit?

 

Are there any advantages with stock springs and Bilstein B8 combo?

I can confirm this, I had Bilstein B12's on my old :st: and it handled amazingly :bow: and for me it was just as comfortable as stock! :yep:
 

Best mods I did were 1) Quaife Diff 2) B12's 3) Supercharger Kit = 328bhp :woohoo: :mf_dribble: :nice:

Those mods sound really nice! Do you have any build logs or videos about the installations - in particular the supercharger kit?
