Hello :)
traded in swift sport 2007 for 2018 civic x 1.5t hatch
so far i did 4500km (2800 miles), no problems whatsoever no oil dilution :)
i had swift lowered for around 7cm (2.8") on v-maxx coilovers
well swift is very small and short car i didnt had any problems over speedbumps
but civic if much longer so i will not get coilovers i know i can put coilovers to
1.5" drop but i know i cant handle my desires well i would slam it and then had problems
on the road... so i will get myself eibach sportlines and i see how that goes...
here in Slovenia we have very strict rules how to modify car... every single item u change must
have papers from manufacturer and so on...
for springs u have to get TUV papers, then you must get mechanic shop who are certified so you get
papers for proper instalation, then u need verified Allingment paper, and you go to DMV so
they inspect the papers and visual check of numbers on springs and papers match and you get a stamp
in small paper you must have with you when cops pull you over ;)
if you dont have all this sorted out your vehicle gets toed to police and your fucked...
so modifications are a bitch here beacuse most of tuning parts you guys use dont have certified A-Test papers
and you fail yearly inspection test :)
here it is impossible to change springs or coils home, or even muffler delete, and drive legally

ok have one question guys with 2018 hatch on sportlines any issues on rear alligment?
is it to low for normal use ? here we got 235/45/17 tires as stock

i had swift for 11 years and 140.000km (87.000 miles)
no issues and i drove it really hard most of the time
really hope honda is still making reliable cars ;)

Nice Looking Hatchback.. Day in day out the Honda is tough to beat. Just pick up a set of 18" Compmotives Mo's 35+ offsets to give it that European rally look.

damn just found out no eibach springs yet in Europe... Eibach dealer told me EU Eibach factory already makes them but not selling yet...
good thing is that is winter here so no hurry until 15.3.2019 that is the time we can drive summer tires :)

Sounds like you have it pretty tough with all those restrictions! Where I'm at, I don't have to have yearly inspections or emissions testing!
damn just found out no eibach springs yet in Europe... Eibach dealer told me EU Eibach factory already makes them but not selling yet...
good thing is that is winter here so no hurry until 15.3.2019 that is the time we can drive summer tires :)
So, the company founded in Germany is not selling in Europe? Weird!

Were you able to buy the Pro Kit from Eibach after all? You should wait to put on your summer tires to see how they will look in this ride height lol :)

yes in europe only pro-kit is available, no sportlines yet...
i am impatient guy summer tires will go on car 15.3 ;) unless there is still snow and will do some pics...
here is mandatory to have winter tires from 15 november to 15 march, not all season tires, but winter tires with minimun of 4mm tread depth (0.16")

i didnt do any side view picture on pro kit yet, weird rims looks like incorrect ET... will probably change those for some alloy next winter with diffrent ET,
i will talk to a shop who are specialized in suspension if they can do something in the back if i get just 0.5 inch lower in the back i am happy, i will wait a month for summer tires
otherwise maybe to cut 0.5" of rear springs to get that proline look if that is possible and safe, the guys there will know

Wow, those wheels look so small at this height … are they correct diameter ? I thought the Pro-Kit was less aggressive than that :)

yes ;) they are 215/55/16" winter tires not sure about ET, i go for narrow winter tires for more snow grip, otherwise it is ok for winter setup to be opposite of flushed so dirt and sand dont do so much damage to paint ;)
here roads get heavily salted and sanded in winter, but it looks stupid yes ;)
