Anyone running Emmanuelle Design springs ?

I got the springs installed two days ago. I couldn't be happier with the drop! I imagine it should settle a little more over the next couple of weeks.
This looks great. What size spacers and % tint?

Nevermind about spacers (read previous posts).

I have 5% rear, 15% sides, and 40% on the windshield. Editing makes it look darker than it really is.
How many miles do you have? Did you swap anything else when installing these springs?

The car is currently at 4500 miles. I had new OEM strut bearings installed. My installer said the ones on the car looked good, but I wanted to play it safe. Here is everything I had installed.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have 8. I was thinking of getting new bearings too just to be safe. If I hear any new noises after install I am going to be very pissed. I've had these springs collecting dust for months because I am not used to going with a brand that doesn't solely specialize in suspension.

Looks great, I have the same springs on my sport. I also love the OEM Nogaro wheels. I can't find anything aftermarket that would justify swapping them out outside of weight savings.

They really are fantastic.

Interesting. From everyone's measurement of finger widths and pictures, the drop looks to be more than 1.2in. I measured my stock GTI Sport 6MT last night, and that was 4 fingers worth of gap, which is about 3 inches. The photos I have seen of these springs show a 1 finger width gap. That would be a 2 inch drop, unless I'm not getting something.

Uh normal? Haha. Finger width seems to be the official measurement for wheel gap

Except for all fingers aren't the same size, sooooo...

The FTG (fender to ground) measurement is actually what's used most often, but with lowering springs only you don't see that measurement taken much. It's more of a "do you rub?" Sort of qualification.

Ahhh ok ok. I live in SF where the roads are absolute shit, and filled with debris, so ground and tire clearance is of some concern.
