    After fitting my kit I had a 2 finger gap at the rear arch and a 3 finger gap at the front, is yours the same?
    After 1000 miles and a bit of settling the rear is noticeably lower than the front and much firmer too. I got onto my supplier who reported the issue to Bilstein,I filled out a detailed checklist supplied by them and they're response was 'there is a known issue with some cars of that model which require a different rear spring'. Sounds a bit like bull* to me but we'll see. I'm waiting for a replacement set to arrive.

    Not quite mine sits about 5 fingers between front axle, and about 3 at the back. I hope it stays as it is, or myabe 5mm difference I'm getting 0 rub, scrapes or anything which is a stark contrast to before.

    No its true. A few have had issues. If you look on seanjaymos old members gallery, he and the new owner have posted about the whole process, and the end result with the new vs old springs side by side.

    Culshaw your cars looking nice mate. I like to see pictures of a classic green in standard, as that's where mine is trying to get.
    Good luck with the suspension

    Thanks mate, the only mod I'm going to make is put some brembo's on the front, and therefore bigger wheels. The stock brakes really are pony. Got some BBS RC's so it won't look too modified.

    Plus it needs a wash, I haven't washed it since i bought it!

    Took delivery of some BBS RC324's today. Will get them on a little later in the year when money is a bit more shored up. There's 215/40/17's on them and I'm unsure if they will rub.
