    Thanks,i bought them already carbon wrapped


    Update

    Yesterday me & my bro fitted 25mm Eibach front arb,Polybushed wishbones & new ball joints
    Anyone thinking of doing this i strongly advise to do it,handling is spot on & i no longer get rubbing from the driveshaft on right lock as hoops are slightly bigger or arb :D

    Also gave it a service while it was up in the air

    Not to bad did it on axle stands,undertray down,dogbone off,exhaust bracket off,unbolt steering rack,drop links,drop subframe,unbolt arb clamps & arb fell out,fitting new 1 was pretty easy

    I fitted 25mm eibach & i'm down 45-50mm & i get no rubbing :)

    Got a knock from the front going over pot holes have found out that on the jom's there is a nut the comes loose that course's the knock so going to strip front struts down & put some thread lock on,been on a year now so doing them good to strip & clean

    Will hopefully be doing bumpers this year going to stay with pre facelift bumpers,plan is to do away with the rub strips on the bumpers & colour code

    I've got a set of door moulding which are going to be colour coded

    going back a few months now, did you get them, if not it's easy enough to do yourself. just some masking tape and a tin of e-tech spray, £10 tops and there road legal. i did mine ages ago and they still look spot on.
