As has been mentioned in a number of posts the PHEV is not an offroader, which I am well aware of and accepts. Now with the recent snowfalls in Sweden I have finaly noticed how really low the car is. I have googled on liftkits for the car but have found nothing. I am not looking at anything advanced like a complete lift-kit, rather only replacing the stock springs with stronger (too cope with heavy load) and longer ones to lift the car 2-4 cm when empty.

www.mad-vertrieb.de/niveaufedern2/mitsu ... -0713.html

have stronger springs for the rear suspension but they do not lift the car when empty (well they do by maybe 0,5-1 cm because they are stronger) but I would like to have 2-4 cm on both front and rear suspension. Anyone having any top tips?

the PHEV rally cars used in a few videos had some suspension work, i couldnt see them racing using stock suspension. though no idea where you would get the work done or buy the parts.

Anyone in the Netherlands having any experience of this company?

Or maybe I shall contact Martin at Öhlins Racing. If I cover my car in Öhlins banners, can you give me a discount? ;)

The Dutch version of that page says some of their customers actually complained about motion sickness ... After reading everything on this and the Dutch forum for more than 3 years, I thought I had heard all the complaints people had about this car. To me it sounds like they are creating a problem for their solution ;)

Doesn't say anything about their shocks, of course ;)

yes, a little extra clearance will be good, got bogged here, see the flat spot in the shadow from the tree mid way up on the right.. we were doing ok, all good until the car slipped into the ruts and got hung up on the battery, which made the flat area in the sand... (it sand was deeper than the image shows)
