Dear Rick,
I highly recommend you get hold of a copy of the three part article called Wringing Out a Carrera 4. It was published in Excellence, April, Sep and Dec 1992. Well worth a read and tells you everything you can do and what the affects are.
To see the end result check out at web site click on rennlsiters, then tech articles then Adrians C4 goes low.
The photos of my lowered C4 are as per the recommendations in these articles. I used EIBACH Springs (964RS) and a full set of KONI Sports Struts and Shocks. Plus a few other little goodies. If changed from the article only in the wheels department. I installed 911 (964) Turbo 17 inch wheels,
Ciao and good reading,

PS: I do not recommend you install H&R Lowering springs on their own. Besides they do not stiffen the ride much on their own anyway.

Adrian; a "side" question. In America, there's this rubber "block" between the blinkers and driving lights. On the European cars, there appears to be a lens or some piece of plastic there. Is that a light of some sort, or a reflector? Anybody ever changed that rubber block to whatever it is there in Europe or is it a bit of a timely project?

On the European cars this is just a small reflector, clear plastic, nothing else. Not sure if you can just swap on a US car.
