Just came back from garage after fitting the Bilstein B12 pro kit...

Incredible how much smoother the car drives now!!
Putholes,ridges,small bumbs are fitered away as if the were not there...wow,no more crashing of the m-sport suspention anymore.. yooohooo...
The car feels much more stable,as on rails! it dives much less at braking,doesnt lean over anymore in turns and the floaty feeling on higher speeds is totally gone!!

Havnt had the chance to do a proper road test but will do soon and i will write up a more detailed story on my experiences with this set...

The car lowered only 1,5 cm so absolutaly perfect!

Some pics(not the best but gives you some idea...)...first are from just before the kit was fitted,then the fitting and then pics from after the kit was fitted:

Car looks so much better dropped on the B12, stance is 100% better in my eyes.
The front has a little drop in it yet while it settles but the rear has far more, drive around with some sand bags in the boot fella for a couple weeks.

The B12 has dropped a little since fitted...will make a few new pics this week...i think stance is perfect now.
