@Autopsyche - Is there a good adjustable coilover system available for the laura? I want to get one for mine, one that would go good with 19" wheels.

Nice.....the kit looks good and the graphics add a touch of sportiness.
Hope the owner gets a good set of 17`/18` alloys soon.!

Arush- Didnt the lowered Laura's have trouble on speed breakers and entrance & exit to baseement car parks?. Or is there a version where you can lower & raise it ?

A couple of my customers Lauras are running on 15mm lowering euro-spec skoda springs and oe dampers and they have no problems running anywhere.

My personal car is running almost 35mm lowering from coilovers. The advantage with this is that the dampers can be stiffened so the overall bounce distance reduces, like when youre going over a bump.... So i can practically take my car to all the places that i could with the stock height.
