It looks really good with the lower suspension. I know I'm obsessed with fuel consumption, but I have a theory that the poor fuel consumption is related to the ride height.I have achieved much better consumption with larger cars with the same Hdi engine. So I would be Really interested to see if lowering the suspension has any impact on fuel consumption. If it did, I would consider getting it done.

Awesome!How about the ride quality?.....is it sacrificed too much.
Did you install Eibach or H&R or other brand?


I am planning to install ProKit eibach springs but would need feedback from those who have installed them first.

I usually look at Range Rovers and think that they would look much better if they were lowered (as they are pretty poor as a 'real' off roader anyway..).I must say though, that looking at a DS4 that is lowered is a bit odd as it really is just like a normal car now - rather than a lowered, normal car (if you get my drift). Mine is the same colour as yours so now I have a visual idea of how it would look. I suppose you could always swap the springs back before you sell it so that the next owner can get that 'raised urban crossover' feel...


Can't say that it looks bad though.... if you say that the handling is improved and you can still get over speed bumps/not run into kerbs when parking head on.. I might be tempted! You should offer yourself as a fitting service on here and make a few quid!

I was looking at my DS4 today and only really noticed for the first time the large gap between the tyre top and bottom of wheel arch!
I can therefore see the attraction of lowering to make it more sporty looking , in the same way I was interested in raising the height of my old RAV to make it more off-road in appearance, but .... As has been said, would it turn the DS4 to much into the mainstream hatch in looks?
Not sure if good idea or not, however the lowered one in the thread does look really good

Must say I question the dropping suspension - although looks good - my reasons....1. The car is designed to look a bit like a SUV - I have been asked numerous times is it a 4x4.
2. Car suspension in sport is quite firm anyway so dropping it will make it a bit harsh for distance travelling wont it?
