There was a small delay while a fresh batch were being made in Germany, but the Eibach sports springs have now arrived for my Boxster – the short, fat one in the picture is for the front, the longer one for the rear. According to the blurb they’re made from Silicon Chrome Vanadium High Tensile Steel and are zinc-phosphate coated for longer life: subjectively they certainly feel a cut above the standard fit items on the car.
My local mechanic is fitting them right now and I can’t wait to experience the difference they should make to the Boxster’s handling.

Porsche GB’s PR department recently organised a little barbecue soiree for Porsche-owning journalists at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone. 911 & Porsche World was there in force, of course, with a plethora of interesting machinery, including Antony Fraser’s Porsche tractor.
