I'm looking to lower my car, but I do not know what to buy. I'm looking to lower my car about 2-3 cm. Maybe more, I'm not sure. What do you guys suggest? I would like to keep my car as "normal" as possible when it comes to handling, comfort, and so on. I do not need a racing car, I just want to make it look cooler:)
I have the 2009 Mk2 Estate, 1,6 liter diesel.

I'm sure this question have been asked here before, but couldn't find anything.
I'm new here so I apologize in advance.

Please link me to other threads which have answers to my question:)


Here is my car:

Good sir, I give you the usual responses:

Eibach Sportlines will get you lowest (2" I think? FTC, chime in here).

Vogtland for a good ride and lower (about 1.5") - I have them on my Mk3 Focus and my old e30 BMW.

H&R - not sure for that car, but, they typically run a little stiffer than most - I have H&Rs on my 320i.

I'm a big Vogtland fan, as they lower the car well and the ride quality stays near stock. I love these things. By the way, I love that car. We didn't get that here in the US.

Good luck!

As Old Grey mentioned, we didn't get that model here but the manufacturers std. types are about the same for different fitments.

Eibach offers a couple drops, a comfortable one at about 1.5", and a lower/stiffer one at about 2" drop. Make sure to confirm which you're looking at, the names are easily confused.
