Bye-bye EDC, hello Bilstein, thank you Birds

Original dampers knackered after 86K miles.

Switched to passive set-up thanks to Birds, so that’s their complete B1 spec on the car now I think.

Drives better now than it ever did before. Steering and braking really sharp, to the extent that the car can even oversteer on sharp bends compared to washing out at the front. Now having to relearn the traction available all over again!

A wheel re-alignment has also corrected a few road handling issues.

No doubt they can. The EDC 'Code Out' was an extra cost for my wagon as I had the dynamics chassis on the car as an option when I bought it. Swapping stock passive dampers to a Bilstein set-up is itemized on their website here.
