Our family car, a Subaru Impreza 2.0 R, had been fitted Eibach Springs Pro Kit a while ago. While the 2008 model already looks awesome on its own the lowered suspension makes it stand out even more in a sea of nondescript Volkswagen clones. But apart from that the lowered body also makes it handle better and increases mileage. Good looks and practical use. Totally win-win situation, if you ask me. It’s really a great, sturdy car and the all-wheel-drive rocks – in the midst of a snow heavy winter as well as on Brandenburg’s notoriously unpaved side roads.
Subaru Impreza 2.0R with Eibach Pro Kit
Eibach Springs established a Facebook Fanpage and from time to time they have some cool fan action going. In our case they asked everyone for pictures of cars with Eibach springs/suspension and offered Eibach stickers to everyone who posted a pic. As happy Eibach customers we posted to picture above, got our sticker and proudly showed our brand appreciation.

Unfortunately the hatch started to suffer from a known rust problem under the chrome trim over the winter. Obviously we weren’t the first ones to encounter this problem and Subaru handled the issue generously and uncomplicated. They took on the cost for a paint job for the hatch and we got the car back all shiny and new. Unfortunately my beloved Eibach sticker was a thing of the past. Thank goodness the nice people from Eibach had thought ahead and had sent two stickers back then. Today I managed to put on a new one and we once more show the the Eibach Springs brand proudly.
And since one sticker isn’t enough and the guys from Speedhunters.com are without a question the height of cool when it comes to auto journalism their sticker got a place of honor on our Subi, too.

Oh, yeah, and Mr. GeekSpeed, the man who organized the stickers adorned the roll bar of his Miata, too. And another one on the hatch.
