Love the alloys man beutiful, how's the ride on the coilovers? I'm thinking of getting some myself I find my 108 is a bit bouncy round the corners when am going hard.

Thanks guys, the modification process is not over yet. If just German street legality regulations weren't that strict ... ;-))

@Mackellar: Until fitting the new tire/wheel combination and the coilovers, the ride in my C1 was pretty spongy and indirect. The winter tires (Semperit MasterGrip 2) provided poor directional stability and stock suspension seemed to be suited more for low speed urban use. I made the same experience as you - bouncy round the corners and at higher speeds, the rear shocks seemed to suddenly give way at a certain point through travel. Pretty unpredictable...
The Michelins are a dream on the road, they stick like glue. Suspension has become considerably stiffer, but that's exactly what I expected and wanted. The C1 now almost feels like a kart. ;-) The results are considerable higher cornering speeds and a way more stable and predictable ride. I really love it!

I purchased the kit at KW (through one of their distributors) but you can order factory direct here: KW automotive. It's a regular item, no custom job.
You find the parts approval document HERE and installation instructions HERE.

Mac, I did a "high speed" run over 40 kilometers on northern Black Forest roads yesterday (if you can call average of 140/150 and tops of 170 km/h downhill "high speed") and I was very surprised of how good the ST suspension and die Michelins work together. This combination really gives you lots of grip and some good portion of confidence. And that Audi S6 driver was just not able to pull away although he tried... ;-) Unbelievable little C1!
