    Hi,

    Iam torn between the H&R cup & bilstien kit.
    Done a quick search but no joy..

    Does anyone have any opinions/ experience on which will give a better ride whilst still giving good handling? As I currently only have a set of koni springs on the car, and they dont seem to like bumps...^...

    Cheers people

    I have the H&R kit on mine and i think its fine. not too rough but still good handling.

    although i don't have experience of any other aftermarket kit.

    im running the seat sport kit on my cupra, and ive been in other cars with h&r kits and tbh theres hardly anything in it, both are excellent as far as aftermarket suspension goes. you'll notice a big difference form the konis. im pretty sure that for the ibiza the H&rs go lower (50mm compared to 30mm) so it depends on how low you want to be realy.

    Yeah spring and dampers, not coilovers- wish i had the cash for them though

    TBH, it seems to sit about the right height with the 30mm koni springs on at the moment

    yea mine has a 30mm drop whixh i think is just right. You've got the koni springs so why not go for the dampers !! I had a set on My Punto GT and they were excellent.

    Yeah we have KW, but they are v expensive.

    I think there is only so much ride quality you can get with lowered cars- its mainly due to the real bad condition roads in the UK! And it really annoys me.[:@]

    But with KW you don’t give up you’re ride
    quality . It really feels like org. Even on a
    bumpy road but on a dirt road you have
    to slow down. Don’t want to tease you but
    a guy is selling his brand new KW set here
    for 400 euro (270 pound) and after 3 weeks
    it still isn’t sold:blink:

    off topic

    Everything in England is much more expensive
    than here:( , every Englishman gets creasy when he
    hit the shops here (don’t mean the coffeeshops:whistle: ) .
