no idea but to me it looks like some lil **** been shooting at it with a pellit gun. will get them and other lil dints tuched up but only when i move out that area. as for the lowering il have a propper brows around when the moneys there. im not going any lower than 40mm at the mo just to play safe with tyre rub. 40mm will be just clear by looks of it so wil most probs be best off with springs for now as if i can go lower i will do eventualy then i wil look at full kit

Re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

right iv been thinking about the lowering and can get some 50mm for 75 but how much would it actualy drop at the rear? i think il get away with 30-40mm if they drop any more than that i think i will get some rub. if anyone knows if il get away with it then let me know. as you know i have 2cm spacers and fiat mareah alloys which are 175 55 r 15 il have to double check the profile as i cant realy cant remember lol. but im unsure of the wheels offset. does anyone know the offset of the alloys off a mareah? basicly i just need to know if il get away with 50mm drop and how much would it actualy settle at the rear? im only thinking 50mm as pics iv seen of 35mm drops realy just look pointless as they dont look no difference.

if i get a lil bit of rub (like when i go over pot holes at speed etc) then eventualy i will open the arches. but if i get a constant rub then il have no choise but to go for 35mm.

someone help pleaseeeee as i can order the 50mm now and recive them in 2days

Re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

oh yes will do. but mite wait till they have settled first. will see how good they look when first on tho. i know they wont be best springs in the world but its bang on drop i want and within my current price range. will update on friday tho. oh also i think hes sorting my exhaust out so the annoying knocking noise from centre silencer will be gone. hes taking the silencer off and putting a pipe there so exhaust will sound a bit better. so will be quite a new car on fri lol. if he remembers the exhaust lol

just a quick question about the active sub tho. it says in the manual there will be a little green light on when sub is working fine. which i have. when the heaad unit is on the sub works fine. but when i turn the head unit off the green light stays on. i cant here no noise from the sub tho (any buzzing or any kind of noise that you sometimes get from when speakers are on) im just wondering if this will drain the battery? iv wired it all up as it says. iv wired up the thin blue remote wire to the headunit aswell. but if i remove the remote wire the sub wont work even when head unit is on. also the green light isnt on. so is this all ok or am i best off getting a switch and put this on the remote wire?
sorry mate dont know if anyone replyed to you about that yet but no it doesnt drain the bettery.. i got edge 12" but not active as they are louder with a edge amp as it comes with it.. and the light stays on.. so your all fine
Thanks mcjacko1987 thanked for this post

Re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

got the backs done yesterday. mechanic had problems took him 4hours just to put the backs on as everything was seized on. hes had to use new shock bolts and re thread a few things. but front are getting done tomorrow hopefully. but at the moment its sitting like a drag car in reverse. il get a pic of it in morning as a funny pic lol. but its sitting exactly how i want it to at the moment on the back and it will most probs drop a lil more once the shocks settle to the springs. but any more drop is an added bonus. very happy with the result so far

Cars looking nice mate, keep up the good work. Don't suppose you know if there's anywhere that sells Adjustable Lowering Springs do you mate?

Thanks.
