do you think 35mm should look ok all round?? bear in mind im on a tight budget, one garage quoted £200 fitting!! is that normal??

Cheers in advance

35mm on 15s looks great, have a look for wolfracepuntos old punto (y)

The kits id recommend would be eibach and apex for 35mm lowering.

Personally i think £200 to fit some springs is extortionate, my garage charged me £80.

i would say any drop you should change to correct dampers. Springs and dampers are paired with regards to spring rate etc.
