I usually associate the word compliant with "softer", "more forgiving" and hence more comfortable. Are you saying that after fitting eibach springs to the car with RFT it was more comfortable than stock springs? I would have expected the opposite.
Yes 100% - that's because they're a progressive spring. I nearly kept the RFTs but had the itch to dump them and it's been a revelation.
Maybe you didn't have stock springs as they are progressive as well? Hence the thin pig-tails that often snap off. Stock rears rarely lasted more than a few years, mine were changed at about 15k miles / 3 years for the first MOT retaining stock, and then again at about 40k miles 7 years later. Hopefully your E's will last longer :thumbsup:
Definitely stock springs. Sold them on here. :)

Great advice on ditching the RF tires from everybody. Just drove my first 50 miles on Michelin Pilot 4s Stock 17" and I'm telling you they are quieter, smoother, grippier at all speeds. Softened the seat up quite a bit too :P I have new struts and shocks coming so she will ride like new.
