16th or 18th of May mines due if I recall, It's always a fun time of year....

I definitely need 2 tyres, As for anything else we'll just have to wait and see... They've not mentioned anything about the sills yet anyway.

What would be considered the next best (cheaper) than the Pedders? If it comes down to it i'll just bite the bullet and get the Pedders. But they do work out to be the same price I paid for the Bilstein B4 shocks. The Kilen springs where 80. But if they truly are that good then it'll help justify the cost!.... How about the Lemforder ones from All German Parts? I know this brand has been questioned by a few members with concerns about quality not being as good as they once where etc..

Almost forgot... What would be the best top mounts be for the front? Some searching on OOF I found these? Presumably they fit the Omega also..

or

Is there another alternative that isn't as expensive that are considered good enough?

Very nice!  8)

Also those are quite impressive performance figures, Hopefully it proves to be a reliable car long term.

What are your plans on self maintaining the car or will most things be done by a garage? Such as brakes, oil etc...

Eibach Springs get my thumbs up, MV6 LSC and Irmscher only available second hand.

These Eibach springs?

The only downside with these would be the 30mm lowering of the car, As it's already catching on the drive a little with the standard ride height.

Are there any stiffer springs that don't lower the car?
Plod springs...  Work with self levelling... Killen also do HD standard height springs... Linked to recently in this section :y

Self levelling suspension has long gone, The previous owner replaced with standard rear KYB shocks if I recall, I did however put Sachs rear shocks/springs on the rear a few years ago seen as the KYB were leaking/failed MOT. Front seem to be on the original Sachs.

Here's an interesting little video. Mine is about the same on the front, You can easily bounce the front with one hand without much pressure.

...Cornering is interesting to say the least and as Nick mentions 'hammering into bumps'... It's okay in a straight line on a smooth surface... But how often do you come across such a road.

If you have standard suspension, what is catching?  That may imply you have another issue?

It's mainly due to the shape of the drive it's not a smooth gradual inclined driveway, There's a point where the center of longer cars such as the Omega say compared to a Corsa/Astra can occasionally just catch a little, On the Omega it's the exhaust mainly due to it being one of those 2 into one systems that doesn't fit like the original system... Anyway, Lowering the car isn't an option tbh.... It doesn't always catch as it is now but it's definitely going to be an issue if lowered 30mm.
