Talking My sporting lowered....(PICS) Sorry 56k ppl

And I am very impressed. I got it lowered 50mm on PI Springs and I think it looks really nice, quite low

Just abit of info: -
The ride is very harsh, however I dont mind because I sacrifice that for the looks. The car handlings like a dream now (ask my gf on way bk from garage 80mph around a big roundable - she was ****ting it) - but it just handlings so well now and its a pleasure to drive
It cost 205 altogether for springs, fitting and balancing
BTW - If any1 sees me around just flash

I also got some vid clips if any1 is interested.

Hopefully pics are below now:
I am eventually going for the motorsport (touring car look)

OPINIONS welcome, Good or Bad

Moving shots from vid clips:









Better photo's to come!
1 happy JQ

Re: I got my sporting lowered today and.........

Looks OK, I seriously need some money, my car is far too normal. Think I'd have to put some brembo brakes on first, then at least I know when I do any performance upgrades, I'll have the ability to stop faster as well.

Yes I do get rubbing and thats only on big pot holes or on Bath's roads, - they are terible. If you want looks go for 17" with 50mm, or u want sensible /looks go for 17" 35mm, if u want inbetween go for 40mm on 16/45/195 tryes

Re: I got my sporting lowered today and.........
