They say these are for the Plugin hybrid but have a start date of June 2016 not July 2017.
Looks like they only change the height by 20 and 10mm for around £220. Would it be worth it?
Now an upgrade to my RX-8... Worth every penny/cent... And already done
Yes the start date has me confused. For some reason my second link didn't work, but they apparently have a part for the electric as well, which is what I was trying to link. http://www.partsoutlet24.com/en/sear...0-42-042-02-22
If I personally were to replace springs, it would be after the [US-market] 5 year/60,000 mile warranty were done, and if I had to replace struts anyway due to failure. At that point, the cost of springs is minimal compared to the labor of removing and rebuilding the strut assembly. With the struts already out of the vehicle, I would consider it worthwhile, but only to the extent that you prefer the look and handling of a slightly lowered vehicle (I won't say performance because let's be real, this is no race car).
Of the dozen or so vehicles I've owned over the years, two were raised for off-road use, and two were lowered. Of the lowered vehicles, one was a 2000 Hyundai Accent, one is a 2001 325i. In both cases, blown suspension was the impetus for repairs/mild modifications. And even on the Accent, the spring rate made the car a lot more confidence inspiring in the corners and stable at freeway speeds. I never thought of autocrossing the car, but going to a ~15mm drop spring and 15" alloy wheel (vs steel 13") made the car far more enjoyable for daily use without sacrificing the economical nature of the car.
"Eibach Lowering Springs offer a balanced relationship between sporty looks and great performance, without sacrificing any comfort."
I thought the point of a hybrid saloon was to get away from 'sporty' driving.
But not sporty looks!
The main points for considering a BEV in my case are to get away from $9/day in premium fuel and to eliminate the need to regularly bust my knuckles to keep an ICE daily driver on the road. Regardless of driving style, I prefer a communicative chassis so I tend to tinker a bit when I replace suspension parts. And I can't afford a Tesla (and prefer something from a mainstream auto maker). Maybe I'm missing the point but it all pencils out for me.
