Looks really good m8.

About the lowering part if youre tyres aren't to ?high thick or how do you say that :p ? it's a go. But keep in mind with a 60mm you need new shocks + springs any respectable company will do. But maybe an idea: adjustables?

the tyres are 195-45-14 so the tyre wall isnt that high, i was thinking adjustables, i found some spax ones for about £350 is that a good price?

and yes i bought them off ebay for £155 they were from somerset

RE: Spax (shocks only) The front's are £100 each and the rears are £50 plus vat and carriage so not far off £350, try motorsportworld.

found them on

http://www.performancecentre.co.uk/p/sv_pl.asp?VC=FTSEI01&PTC=SUS02

they are £361.69 for -60mm spax adjustables so when i have the cash i will probably get them :D

will i still be able to have rear passegers having the car lowered 60mm :confused:

you not added VAT to that price, with VAT it £30 cheaper from motorsportworld - £404.99

i doubt you be able to have rear passengers with a -60mm rear, could always go -40mm by getting the cinq sporting 60/40 kit

i havent tried it with any weight in the back yet ill give it a go and see what happens

Yer 40mm will look nice, unless you dont plan on carrying any passengers a lot then go for the 60mm drop, unfortuneatly my circumstances mean i do carry a bit of weight a lot so ive not bothered with lowering.

Im sure 40mm on those tyres will look sweet and im sure others will agree
