Suspension specialist introduces lower-riding option for Fiat’s take on the MX-5

The Fiat 124 Spider has been well received for its chic looks. But we all know it’s based on the same architecture as the Mazda MX-5, so people keep comparing the way they drive – and the results make for ugly reading if the retro Italian has stolen your heart.

The answer? Why, the aftermarket, of course. Suspension specialist Eibach has been hard at work developing a solution – the result being a choice of kits which tidy up the 124 by lowering its ride height.

First comes the Pro-Kit Performance pack, which dumps the 124 by 35mm at the front and 25mm out back. But if you want a more serious angle to your handling, the company’s Sportline Sport Performance option (as shown here) drops it by another 10mm at each end.

The result, says Eibach, is that all-important ’motorsport feeling’. The fact that it looks so much more cool like this is just a by-product of your quest for dynamic excellence, obviously. Oh, and of those funky red springs.

While you’re about it, Eibach also offers a set of wheel spacers, machined out of aluminium to keep their strength up and their weight down. A wider track makes for greater stability and, says Eibach, enhances the steering’s self-centring effect. And looks cool, etc.
