Lowering the Eos....

Is it just me or does the standard Eos look as if it has the same amount of gap between tyre and wheel arch as a Taureg? They just look so pumped up like there gonna go off road.

Even those model with 18" wheel dont seem to look any different. I realize they need to make the ride comfortable but BMW seem able to give there cars a more sporty look in standard guise.

Has anyone here succesfully dropped there Eos down a bit, any pictures. Ive ordered mine with westwoods and I just want it to look standard, minus the huge gap so it looks a little lower, which would give it a more stretched look over all as it is a bit stumpy I think out of the box.

Is this something VW can offer, i.e. a sport suspention pack, so as not to void warrenty??

Thanks for any input.

Isn't that what happens with the sport model, lowered by 15mm? I know it doesn't sound a lot but may make the difference.

i agree!
the sport drops it a bit but if you have 18" chicargos you dont get the drop
been looking into ebach springs for around £150 that lower about 1" and looks much more sporty
but dont want to ruin ride :) ebach says it dosnt plus improves acceleration as reduces spin
still waiting for someone else to try though :D

£150 for the springs doesn't sound to bad. We will however stick with stock as we live in the Country and have some bad roads we have to travel everytime we go out.

Go on, give it a go, you can be the first here to do so and report back with pictures and your findings.

I'm not sure what issues can arise with VW, maybe worth ringing your local dealer to clarify were you stand.

Bille6, got some piccies to show?
+1, I'd love to see some photos of your set up.
