Well I agree with you, and I switched to metric units long ago, but still we are stuck with mph/miles (and yes, a little sarcasm was introduced, sorry)

No probs with the sarcasm. It's under-used in my opinion.

Nigel, you hit the nail. If you buy , Orginal ,buy original, it isn't what you get on eBay. Wishbones aren't just wishbones, a metal part that looks like it isn't worth to buy.. even fiat and Alfa have different numbers for several platforms e.g. Marea and coupe they fit both and have the same look.
In regard to stiffer bushes I like to comment that the friction is needed. stiffen something could cause movement somewhere else what couldn't move , so it could break.

What's the agreement on 16vt Eibach springs? Are they okay for road use in places where the roads are not of best quality? Do they work nice with Monroe shocks?
EDIT: I'm thinking whether I should order a set, or remain on standard springs, and fit only a thicker rear ARB + front strut brace.
