    Had my first Mini (cooper D) for about 4 months now and love it,

    done a few mods; fully dechromed, windows tinted, change of alloys, few JCW bits, carbon wing mirrors (which were a steal) and wiper delete.

    myself and my family liked it so much we now have a f55 SD

    looking to lower it and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for springs or if Eibach is the way to go

    Hi Cam, after reading loads of posts it seems that Eibach are the preferred option for springs, thats what I bought anyway, just haven't got round to fitting them yet

    A few folks on here have used Eibach springs

    Car looks great - love the all-black look.

    Hi, first post on here. I’ve done Eibach and cheap Chinese Febi Bilstein shocks and completed 20K with no issues. Get a sump guard ESSENTIAL ��
