Nico, just 1 small question: why is lowering of -40mm a problem? I know that if you go lower than 40mm, you need adapted shocks. A coilover kit is always the best way to lower a car, but here in Belgium, you have the choice between KW and H&R (because of the paperwork we need for GOCA). But they cost minimum 1400 EUR (without placing costs). A bit expensive, compared to lowering springs only.

Therefore, if we can order several coilover kits together, the price might drop a bit...

If not, i will go for lowering springs only.

Mine is also already lowered (H&R) but only with springs because of what you say, coilover kits are expensive.

I bought mine for 200Ä, I could also buy V-maxx for about 130Ä, it goes a little lower and also with papers. But I chose H&R just because I think it's better quality.

I have had V-maxx springs on my previous car, a CitroŽn C2, and I was very surprised about them in the positive way. They were pretty hard, but the road-holding qualities were extremely well!

That's why I'm considering to purchase them again for the Yaris now. In combination with the Tanabe strutbar and TRD swaybar, I think they will perform well.

Are you satisfied with the H&R-springs? Are they soft, medium or hard? And do you feel that the handling has improved?

I think but i'am not really sure in Belgium (GOCA) you cannot exceed -30mm with only lowering spring and also the car should not exceed 9cm compared to the ground...!

http://www.how2tune.be or phone to GOCA for more informations

Homeboy do you see Jochen? http://www.frappr.com/yarisowners I don't see it...!

GOCA doesn't say anything about the springs you use. The only rule they have / use, is that the car may not be lower than 9cm from the ground (bodykits not included), with the driver in the car. Otherwise, it is 11cm without the driver. So, I think that 40mm shouldn't be any problem.

And no, I can't see Jochen either onto the map.

Amen to that, Andries!

I wish you also all the best for 2009, and I hope that we can organize a meet & greet this year.

I can't really remember how it was with the standard springs, so I don't know the difference. I feel a lot of holes and bumps but I have lowered my car just for the looks.
I still don't get it why they make cars look like a buggy.

Hey,

Zit al een tijdje op het forum maar zie nu pas het benelux gedeelte!
Goed bezig! Zijn er nog Beneluxers die ook een 1.3 rijden?

Zit er aan te denken om hem wat te verlagen.
Hoeveel raden jullie aan? er liggen 16 inch velgen met 205/50 banden onder

Hier 2 foto's van mijn Yaris 1.3 Cool + Sportpack + Ipod icelink

Hey.

Met originele dempers zou ik nooit verder gaan dan 3 a 3,5 cm.

Wil je niet dat je comfort veel minder wordt ga dan voor Eibach (als je de verlagingsveren van Toyota zelf neemt is dat ook Eibach)

Top bedankt voor je Tip
Wel vreemd dat de Eibach veren bij bv verlagins-veren.nl 171 euro kosten.
en als je ze via toyota zou doen het 452 euro zou kosten.

De Eibach veren zijn trouwens een verlaging van 2,5cm rondom, denk dat dat een mooie verlaging is. (niet te laag en niet te hoog).

EDIT!

Even een photoshop gemaakt van een verlaging van 2,5 cm! Staat super!

VOOR


NA
