 :welcome: We had at least one member who was a rep I think who did fairly big mileage. He reckoned the rear suspension in particular was pretty poor and had started to sag. Can't remember what ended up happening though.

As you are probably aware the tourer is made in Europe and has a different rear suspension set up to the 5 door Hatch. You may have to source something from Europe? Have you enquired at the dealer or any local suspension tuners?

Thanks Mate, Yeah I'm aware they are built in Europe. Just putting the feelers out there at the moment, just thought I'd post something to see if anyone has sourced some. do you if the struts are the same?
