I'm picking up an 08 Titanium tonight on which i'm having the Eibach's fitted as part of the deal.
Unfortunatly the springs havent turned up yet, though they was only orderedWednesdayafternoon.
As soon as they turn up i'll be taking the car back for them to be fitted and thesteering etc re-tracked. As soon as i get it home i'll whop some pictures up. I'll take some over the weeknd too so that you can see a before and after......

I would quite like to see a C-Max lowered as well, it might tempt me!

Is it a bit of a bone shaker now? I picked up my brand new C-max Titanium today & I had the Sports pack fitted to it so it came with the 18's. I was really tempted to fit the Eibachs, & if I'm honest I still am, but worried about thr ride quality as at the end of the day it's not a racer by any means (handles well with the sports suspension & 18's though)

Nope, its firmer but its not a rock solid ride as they are progressive rate springs.
