Just picked it up from Eibach
Here are some before and after pics...

Above = Before

After 1" front and 1.5" drop in the rear


Alignment
This is the Pro-Kit installed. The Sport Kit is even lower. I chose the Pro Kit because I will be driving all over the country.:cool:

VERY nice!!

I like the ride height you got with lowering it 1 inch in the front and 1.5 in the rear.

Any plans to lower it more? How about wheels, are you upgrading them later?

Yes. If you go to Eibach site it says 1.2 all around... others say "1 inch all around"... actual 1" front and 1.5" All = Pro Kit.
This is still not available to purchase. Eibach says 2 weeks... but I imagine it will be a lil bit longer. You can call direct for updates or have your shop/dealer notify you when available. IMO this kit is not too low.

This is perfect for most all paved roads here in the US.:cool:

Correct me if im wrong but....One thing with buying brand new coilovers or coils, they take some time to "break-in" So i guess with a bit more driving, maybe 1000 miles later they will be fully broken in and your 500 might sit slightly lower.

I will have to find out when the Fiat 500 Eibach lowering springs will be available for purchase, since i hate calling and being on hold forever i will take a look at Eibach's website.

Upgrading the wheels? The wheels you see are 17x7 custom (made in Italy) Magneti Marelli $3k+.

I will go no lower because I will be driving it all over the country.

Sorry buddy, the wheels looked really OEM to me, and that's a good thing. I really like them.
Would you mind posting the link to their website showing these wheels, I want to read up on them. Tried google'ing them, no luck.
Finding aftermarket wheels for Fiat 500 isn't easy, I only seen maybe a few.

she looks good, how much did fiat 500 Eibach Pro Kit Spring run you & whats it like driving with them?
I have no idea on $. Driving is much the same as far as firmness. @ first I was real careful of dips and bumps... but after a couple hours I realized it is unnecessary. Handles like a Go Kart.

The wheels are imported to us by a company here in Southern California. 500Madness http://www.500madness.com/

I just ordered mine today from Rob at www.roadracemotorsports.com he said he will be able to get them out fairly soon. Very easy guy to deal with, hes got a ton of great stuff coming for our car, i also ordered their new intake kit, which unlike the other intake currently out, will actually fit the car properly and yield more power.

You have the Eibach springs in stock? How is that possible? The final pre production fitment for the Pro Kit was was on my car @ Eibach and they had to make a a change and Re spin the rear springs. This was yesterday. The actual Sport Kit 2" springs are ever farther out... the Eibach tuner told me the Springs would be available in a couple weeks or so. Another fiat owner, on this forum, told me he bought ordered the springs from you. If they are still not a bailable to the public yet... how is it... that you have them in? Are the the EU speck spring that don't work on the us 500? :confused:
