Outside of London is fine with me, going to Leicester would negate any discount being offered. First world problems eh!

Frustrating how these are equivalent of £180 to buy new in the US (aren't they made in Germany?) yet cheapest I can find for the U.K. is £340 and allegedly we're the ones with the better trade rates in the EU

That sounds like a mistake. Do you have a link?

Granted it's a sale but even full price (£240) is cheaper than here -

I'm not sure what's going on over there as ECS are only listing one kit and Turner two kits, whereas we have dozens. There has been a change of importer into the US so my guess would be they are overstocked there. I've seen Turner offer AC Schnitzer parts at well over double our price in the past.

Yes I had a browse some are certainly eye-watering!
Do you guys offer the Eibach kit as well? I read (although perhaps not conclusively) that it's the exact same springs as the ACS but obviously much cheaper

We (Rossiters) do sell and fit Eibach as well but it's not the same kit.

Finally got the car in to Mallory Performance on Wednesday morning and got the springs fitted. Really happy with the results and car seems to glide around the corners much neater now. Had the wheel alignment done as well and oddly it was quite a bit out on the front so that might explain the neater cornering.

Before and after photos done outside MP so it has dropped a little further now they're settling in a bit. Only done 100 miles so far though
