A Fantastic Mod for BA XR8
Not often you see a simple mod make a huge difference but this is a beauty.
The BA XR8 is a superb riding vehicle with good handling, but one criticism many have is it is lazy on turn-in. It seems to take a little bit of time to react as the suspension takes up the slack.
Well, without going to the extent of fitting coils front and rear, lowering etc there's a fantastic fix available that would even suit fleet drivers.
There are front springs available that keep the standard height yet provide a better turn in. The difference is amazing, with the ride comfort only marginally compromised. And all this for around $160!!!!! (or $330 fitted)
The mod consists of a specific coil made by Lovells. The demand for these coils has shot through the roof with some dealers fitting these springs to their demo cars because it makes such a huge difference.
I know it's not the same as a good full kit from herrods, but I'm certain some people will see the value and convenience of the cheaper alternative.
