Well Awesome Gti lived up to their name today and fitted my Whiteline Rear Anti Roll Bar and Eibach Pro Street Coilovers.

My impression after 50 miles.. So so impressed! The ride is actually slightly softer and more comfortable than the standard cupra dampening but it feel more sturdy at the same time. The turn in is much sharper along with more feeling through the wheel. The car lurches less under heavy braking and can really be powered out of corners. The rear ARB is amazing and tightens up the rear no end, standard it felt like it wallowed slightly behind the front now you can encourage a little useful lift off over steer if needed.

I will write a more detail report once I have covered more miles. The back is as far as it will go and the front is set to match. It will settle further in the next few days.

Here are a couple of taster pics for now. I intend to do some more arty ones over the weekend along with a nice vid.









EDIT::

Car settled nicely and is a truly epic little handler now. Here are some new pics now spring has sprung:
(other car is my dad's MX5 mazda speed kit lowered 35mm on eibach/bilstein's

Yeah its my daily drive so cant be too low. It will settle a little more and the light of the camera makes the gap look bigger than it actually is.

I think it was was £1050 inc VAT, Fitting and the Whiteline ARB. I'll check the paperwork later.

I think because i've shot the photo's looking up at the car it makes it look higher than it actually is. I'll get better ones tomorrow.

Yeah it is a lot but we've spent so much on the motor's there is no point putting crap on their and ruining the car. Such an improvement
