morning all sorry but i only have partial update for you as they have only sent of the spec not prices as they are out of the office, but i think they will stay the same but i will confirm soon. With regards to the amount of lowering as follows:

997 Turbo -20mm

All other models -15/20mm depends if the car has factory PASM

Would love to do these but I guess it would effect my factory warranty?

Probably but it might be worth a call to OPC to find out how much and what parts wouldn't be covered

Agreed call the OPC as it won't void the whole warranty just parts connected to the springs etc.

So I was thinking about doing this last week so decided to give Centre Gravity a call to see what they thought about spring choice. Their preference out of the 3 (techart, Eibach, H&R) is Eiback on the basis they give a decent normal ride quality but are then progressive so that when driving hard / tracking it they firm up nicely in the corners. Same drop of 20mm with PASM on a C2S.

Eibach are currently doing 20% off their entire range meaning you can pick up 4 springs including VAT and delivery for £290...

http://www.eibachshop.co.uk/info-part-list?make=PORSCHE&model=911%20(997)&spec=3.8%20Carrera%20S%2001%2F07%2F2004%2001%2F12%2F2008

worth a thought..... think this is probably the way I'm gonna go (unless I decide to enlist some magical man maths and persuade myself to go with a full damptronics set up Laughing )

I have had the eibach's before and they do feel like a good spring when installed, but the only thing I would say about them is they still leave the rear of the car riding quite high so the arches look a bit uneven that's why I thought I would go techart this time.

Ah if you’ve already given them a whirl then fair enough! Smile I ordered the Eibachs today... probably won’t get round to fitting them for a while but will post a pic when I do!

Sorry guys Christmas got in the way of this one abit, so i have an update for you and could do with a final list of takers for the group buy.

Right the deal is Tech 9 will deliver a set of Techart springs for all gen 1 and gen 2 models (including turbo) that lowers 15mm - 20mm with or without PASM for £399 - 12% if we get 3 or more takers, this works out at just under £352 if my maths is correct to your door.

I tried to squeeze a little more but Phil couldn't do any better due to the current exchange rates, so i think we have a pretty good deal with this price.

So far we have had a few interested parties but we need to get definite numbers now so if you want to add your name to the list please do. Phil at Tech 9 has asked for chassis numbers to make sure you get the right kit but i am sure you can give this when we order, so can we have a show of hands please

Phil's car looks just perfect Thumb

However having the rear slightly higher was most likely a key design feature with the Eibach springs. My guess is it is a case of function over form; in that adding a bit of Rake angle will be beneficial to how the car handles.

I agree mate , There is often a small compromise with form over function which I did with Techarts on my Gen1 , interestingly the H&Rs that are fitted to my gen2 do have a slight rake and its been a sod trying to get the stance right what Grin It does handle well but I would have loved to get the rear down a few more mm Thumb

Phil,
Has that rear wing been overendulging this festive season? It looks to have gone up two or three belt sizes and may soon start lifting the front of the car off the Tarmac!
Very Happy

I guess it's voracious appetite is the reason the previous owner went for the 'rake' of the H&R's Thumb
