Here is a photo of my newly installed Eibach Pro System



I posted and will be posting on my Eibach thread (LOTS OF PHOTOS!) on ClubB5.com (http://www.clubb5.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=90678).  I'll be including impressions during the next two weeks.

congrats on the new setup!
I also have the ProSystem on mine and I love it.

The drop is suppose to be around 1-1/4" all around, but from what I've heard the fronts don't always drop the same level as the rears depending on the VIN you have (there's early/late VIN B5 and early/late VIN B5.5, which some require different bump stops or other revised parts).

Also your car will settle a little bit after about a week after the install.  You should also get a computerized 4-wheel alignment around this time too (this will reduce steering jitters and uneven tire wear).

Good luck!

Right on! Of course it helps the look of the car, but how are you liking the feel??

I love it.  I've only had the setup for less that 100 miles but so far it's great.  Stiffer that I though it would be based on people's comparisson to OEM, but not TOO stiff.  Handling is TONS better.  So far, the drop is only .5".  I hope, when it wears in, it'll be closer to the 1.2" drop that's advertised.  Thanks guys (and gal)!

Awesome!  Glad you like it.  I test drove aowhaus' ride after he got these installed and I really like that it is stiff but smooth.  Nice high quality ride.
