    Colorful lowering spring

    I've been seeing some pretty different colors for springs, are you a fan of mixing totally different colors like blue Springs on a red car etc..

    I'd be fine mixing spring colors. Unless you have a really open designed alloy wheel, you'll never see them.

    You know, I also like when the springs are colored and visible. Even if it is a Micra, not a huge SUV. To me, such small details make vehicles unique. I also like such small details. Because if you look at them closer, you'll notice the overall idea. On my red Micra I have got yellow springs (Bilsteins) and I have also recently ordered small yellow wheel locks (https://www.carid.com/wheel-locks/). Must say, totally love the way it looks. Also think of getting yellow calipers to match the things I already have.

    White car red stuff! That's what ours will be. Black wheels with red pinstripe. I am a powdercoater so I can create some cool stuff. Plus I have a plasma CNC machine and full welding capability.

    Interesting. How's the ride quality with bilstein springs? Are they a bit stiff or soft? I'm thinking of getting either h&r or eibach, but may be bilstein is worth considering also.
