I had these springs fitted about five months ago, and I am very pleased with the results. Not only do they get rid of that ridiculous wheel arch gap, they substantially improve the handling giving you more confidence in corners at higher speed. With no loss of any real ride comfort! Not that the handling of the Mk3 was bad with the manufacturers springs, the H&R Springs just put the icing on the cake! The only problem I had was with my main dealer who seemed quite reluctant to fit them for me because they were worried about warranty issues. I telephoned MX 5 Parts who were very helpful, in explaining that H&R warranty would cover my suspension once the springs were fitted. So it seems my main dealer was just scaremongering. In the end a mechanic friend of mine fitted them saving me loads of cash. All my main dealer did was perform a full geometry set up at around £100, I recommend you do this after fitting these springs.
