Im guessing since they are both 1.6's that the 1.6 springs will fit the turbo version since they are pretty much identical.
The one's that I am looking at say they fit 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 so a 1.6T isn't any different but not 100% sure.

Anyone know?

Note: I don't have an astra but should have one early next year so im planning ahead

They'll fit straight on but the axel weight may be different as the 1.6T will be heavier. Certainly no worse than putting VXR springs on a 1.9 derv.

I asked eibach and they said the springs for the 2.0 turbo, 1.7cdti, 1.9cdti and 1.3 cdti are the ones to use, and are the ones i fitted

How low did you go? Thinking about 30 or 35 so i don't have to change dampers or shockers or whatever you call them

Looks smart, might try and find the 35mm just for that tiny bit extra. Shouldn't make much of a difference but :shrug:

Bump, Does the sports button on the Astra 1.6T affect the springs? My mate has a 1.8 and he says its a hassle to lower his car due to sports suspension or something like that

It's only a issue if your car is fitted with ids
