I was wrong assuming I've the later top mounts, turned out it's the early ones! Decided to get the Bilstein B14's. Where's the best place to order them? Anything south of £843 would be great!

I'm also replacing the top mounts with new, OEM ones. Am I missing an opportunity by not getting adjustable ones? Car is used daily on road and occasionally (3-5 times a year only) on track.

Thanks!
I’d say you’re missing an opportunity to get adjustable mounts mate.

Have a chat with @tombate911 he can hook you up

Cup trophy with adjustable Koni dampers & H&R progressive springs & Compbrake top mounts. Had all the adjustable Powerflex bushes too. The Konis were superb.
How was this setup for track days vs road driving? I daily my Clio and wanted something that will be able to deal with bumpy roads, but not have the wobble the FF cars have on the track.
 
I am looking for lowering springs for my non-cup 200 and I am pretty much set on eibach pro springs because of the ride quality, but then I came across the Whiteline lowering springs which are currently on sale and they offer progressive spring rate as well. Has anyone used Whiteline springs before?

Been wanting to find out also.
Found them on KAM Racing but cannot find a review that's on a Clio

What I can tell is that both sets of springs for 197 and 200 were designed to work with the cup shocks from what whiteline sent me.

The spring rates for the 197
4.4kg fronts
6.2kg rears

15mm drop on the front and 20mm on the rear


Spring rates for the 200
4.7kg fronts
6.2kg rears

With same drop 15mm front and 20mm at the rear


I am tossing up to get springs and new cup shocks or just got straight coilovers but the price jump is a worry.

Main issue I have is no one has tried them or and I do not want to make the car ride and handle like shit

I've got H&R 30mm springs with standard shocks/dampers but the back is very rocky/bouncy. Would this ease if I got rear cup dampers?
