still not sure if I'm lowering it yet. Would look better, but there's the cost and loss of comfort.

here's some interior pics:

cheers, didn't tint my back lights too dark, and only lightly sprayed the reflectors so they are a bit lighter than the rest.

didn't have any MOT problems with the back lights either

With the Abarth side skirts it looks low enough as it is.

I have the side skirts on my car (a stilo), and it makes it appear quite low.

Just think of the state of the roads and some speedbumps you wouldnt be able to get over if you did have it lowerered.

word of advice if your going to lower it 50mm be careful mine scrapes like a bitch i'm running PI full setup which is crap but makes the car look great. imo get fully ajustable coilovers.

really? heard from others that 50mm is fine with standard wheels. Would do my head in if it scraped. I would love to lower it, but I'm still deciding becuase of insurance, the harder ride and the general cost

probably, it's quite a big picture, that I loaded up as a smaller image.

Here's a photoshop tho of my car lowered around 50mm:
