mmmmm perfect imo. Maybe a light (just-about-get-away-with) tint on all windows... except windscreen obviously. But I reckon that would look very cool.

I'm gonna get a quote on tints, there's a company round the corner from me (where davethetrike's car is at the moment)

if you are going to be fitting skirts i think you really need to find something for the rear bumper as it getting way out of line!

would also fit slightly smaller tyres and lower her a smidge more so she is very low :)

I quite like the look where the rear bumper is higher - makes the skirts look lower hehe

lower profile tyres are more expensive, and only had these ones 3 months, so they're staying at £200 a set

lowering will also wait as I can't afford new exhausts...

Looks cool, definatly an improvement.

I reckon its low enough (although you can never go too low of course!). What drop have you got at the mo?

It's definately low enough in my area... the downpipe hits stuff...

it's apparently a 35mm drop (from a sporting, so 55mm total) apex springs & shocks.

Lowering realy changes the look of the car. Makes it look 10x more aggresive.

Just curious as ive only just fitted some wheels (16" tsw pace) and the 4x4 look doesnt realy work:D

Debating how much i can get away with without it rubbing over bumps etc (was thinking 60mm front 40mm rear). Is there much room left under the arches? Did you notice any improvement in the general handling?

handling has been improved 10 fold. but i did fit uprated dampers and a front strut brace.

I've never looked back (apart from the ground clearance from the exhaust), as it completely changes the way the car responds
