    After weeks of thinking about lowering my car i decided just to get on with it today and see what it would be like.....
    I lowered the car 40mm all round and really like the new look and the much improved road handling however i am now thinking about a further 20mm drop on the front,any thoughts on this??

    below are a couple of before and after pictures i took,
    Next job is the paint shop to get the new rear arch re-sprayed before the salt and dirt get put on the roads.

    before the drop....


    and the new look.......

    new wheels and a drop all round? or have you got 2 different sets of wheel on?

    the drop looks good mate, wouldnt worry about lowering it much more

    10/10 for observation yup new 17" wheels with almost new goodyear eagles F1 fitted to them all for £156 from the good old e bay (i love that site).
    still fancy going that extra 20mm on the front though,however i have yet to have the wife and 2 kids in the car just to see how low it goes without rubbing LOL
