    Thank You Dox.

    Yes great thanks they are still the original specification callipers but i hunted the best I could find which were Brembo discs from Euro car parts and Brembo pads from GSF car parts on the 60 % special, think all in for discs and pads on all corners cost under £150.00 , pretty damn good for Brembo.

    One of the best bargains was the EEC Cat made in the UK. Vince and I could'nt believe the quality of it and only in the £60s.

    Anyone do not waste your money on this piece of junk downpipe exhaust, had to send it back was 15 degrees out and poor welding, thankfully my original downpipe has got some life left in her. But goodluck getting a new downpipe from any where might have to opt for headers from Germany if a good one doesnt come on the market.

    Also the alum key bolt set that VW International advertise for the VR6 Corrado sump are to long and luckily my mechanic noticed this and could of threaded the housing for the sump which would of been a nighmare Ive got to send them back !

    Thanks P.

    He just fitted the extra springs that Eibach sent out, he did'nt attempt to fit the orginal rear springs as just thought I must of got the extra springs for some reason.

    My car does sit higher at the back by a finger and a half from tyre to centre of internal wheel arch. Looks correct I reckon. Have you got a difference in height. Before on my H and R springs it was a two finger gap all the way round but to harsh for me but had a great stance. Will prob take another week or so to truely settle. I imagine the front settles quicker because of the weight of the engine.

    Thanks Harrier much appreciated. I loved the MK2 Golf 16V in black as well it was a really popular colour back in the late eighties and noughties.

    Right a bit of experimental .

    The rear H and R springs (green) taken off that were low 2 finger gap and the new rear Eibach springs(black) that came with the set that did not get fitted.

    They look a fair bit shorter so I think that proves the theory that they have been manufactured to short unless the H and R have streched ??? Any advice members
    Cheers.

    Yes that’s right I have an even gap all the way round. Front did settle quicker. Good the see a comparison with the H&R spring and confirms that rear springs would ace dropped the rear by around 50mm vs the front’s 25mm.
