Did you install 10mm spacers on all four corners? Same ones all around?

Could someone PM me a good EU based distributor? Being let down/messed about by the vendors I've contacted and I'd prefer not to ship from the US.

Did you try eBay in the EU? eBay US has a seller at $299 including shipping.

Are those the actual H&R 28802-5 springs for the M2, or the ones for a 235?

Haven't seen much activity on this thread in a bit or any substantial reviews. Can anyone who has installed these comment on performance gain? Are the springs noticeable under spirited/track driving?

Very quick review (phone is dying)...

I've only done daily driving (I have another car for track use). A bit stiffer, maybe a TAD less roll with sprinted driving. A bit more bouncy/jarring on rough roads. Honestly for me this was more a cosmetic upgrade than for performance.

Nothing unbearable. Looks great IMO. No regrets. Still deciding on spacers

Would anyone recommend these simply for a cosmetic reason?

Based on the photos above your post - no. Stance of the MG car looks almost the same before and after

That's precisely why they are installed. You do get a reduction in body roll, but it's for the looks. IRL there is a definite difference.
