    Thinking of getting a set of these but they don't seem particularly popular and was just wondering if anyone has had them and what they thought of them? I don't think the Eibach/AC lower enough at the front, have read the H&R ruin the ride and don't fancy paying £2k for the M performance suspension when my car is out of warranty in a month so thinking the Litchfield are the best option.

    I read a few places that they squeak and creak a fair bit.
    H&R ruin the ride and possibly the dampers as they're too low for the standard damper. Eibach may not be as low but they seem to be a better compromise if staying with standard dampers.
    If your out of warranty then go with the KW HAS kit or go for coilovers, and that will allow you to get the exact height you want, and have better handling and ride at the same time.

    Why pay £2000 (which is massively OTT btw) for M performance HAS when KW are £600 plus fitting

    If it purely based on money then KW HAS is the way to go

    Are the KW HAS trickier to fit than just springs? I live in Northern Ireland and a bit unsure where I'd go to get the KW fitted.

    Do you rate the KW over M HAS? A few have said the KW is not as good, rates are different, quality not as good etc. Thought you had these fitted to your car previously?

    I really rate the Eibach pro kit car sits nice and does not catch over speed bumps etc also a big improvement over stock in sport /sport+ normall mode is a bit bouncy - going for adjustable springs to gain anything you will need it set up on corner weight scales Imo not worth it for a road car when you can get good gains from the right springs

    Probably not expensive enough for some to accept them as a solution though :think:

    Heard good things about Eibach Pro and more comfort in comfort setting is not a bad thing! Although if you need adjustability then other kits needed.

    Swift springs maybe, although they give quite an aggressive drop from what I understand. I think Chrisc had them on one of his cars.

    I am going down the MP HAS route, but was lucky enough to get a deal on Dave’s
    Kit which is coming off of his car. Hope it’s easy enough to fit!

    Rumour has it that the MP HAS is actually the KW HAS painted a different colour

    I think the Eibach just look like there's still too much of a gap for me. I either want it properly low or not bothering changing the springs and for me the Eibach/AC just don't go low enough.

    Fair enough. Was just providing an example in black in case you hadn't seen one, as from your profile, I can see you have the correct M4 colour ;)
