Just a little bump for John's group buy and some more photos to help people decide which is for them. Bottom photo is PASM car running eibachs springs on oem sports design rimms with 7&15mm spacers. Top photo is PASM car on Techarts with oem 5mm spacers although the wheels have a greater offset so probably close to 10 & 20mm on oem rims.

Cheers Mike, you after some sort of commission lol

It looks like a nice drop with the Techart springs, we just need one more but will leave this running a litle longer anyway when we get the 5th contender.

Have another forum member interested from speaking with him on the phone so hopefully will go ahead. Would be interesting if we get to 10, should definitly worth a further discount I say.

BTW, smashing wheels you have and the colour is pretty damm good, especially when you zoom in mate Thumb Thumb

But you need to get rid of that McDonalds Milk Shake in the holder Hand

Hi all

final question so i know now that i need hub centric spacers in 5mm front & 7mm rear

but i cant find hub centric in these sizes they are all called shims and ideally need black ones with new longer black bolts and locking nut bolts

Ive also heard Porsche make their own official kit

Porsche do a 5mm shim with a screw to hold it but they are heavy with Porsche tax so would suggest looking at other options the shim is ok but you want the ones with spigots see example below. theres a company that does them in black but cant for the life of me remember their name , it was in a spacer thread on here about a year ago.

Hiya J, we are at 4 at the mo. Do you think your mate will be interested for definite.


Hes contemplating, saying its too expensive, so i told him to sell his 997 and buy a Nissan Micra where the springs are cheaper. He didnt like what i said .. but hes thinking about it.. ill edge him on it...

I guess no one is in a rush to get these springs, if we leave it longer, the more members we have the cheaper we get them, christmas is coming up so i dont think anyone is gonna be doing a springs change during winter?? Well im not in a rush.. more members less prices.. Thumb

I’m very tempted. Can anyone advise if the Techart springs create a slight nose down stance please.

I’m after a small ride height drop but wish to keep a neutral stance. I don’t know who’s car this is but it has the perfect stance I’m after.

my techarts were negative rake, whereas the H&R do have a slight rake. see the midnight car looks flat the aqua car is slightly raised at the back, we are not talking 70s jack up kit but is is very slight and you can see it in the pic Grin
