    sorry lads im 37, but for the record ive been modifying my cars since passing my test and it does seem to take the p*ss how much the insurance companys like to hike premiums for stuff that should make it safer and less likley to have a accident, never quite understood how that works?

    lucky for some!... Yeah but times are'a changing my friend. Insurers don't like young drivers as generally young lads with no experience get in their saxo's (no offence) put their foot down and crash because they have no idea how to control a car. Shame I cant tell the insurers that I've been driving since I was 12

    On the safety front though, your not wrong, but in a sense putting coilovers on a car will improve handling and reduce road holding (generally but not always (most people forget they are different!)) so could in turn make the car more dangerous in the hands of an "inexperienced" driver. Thus premiums will increase for us and not for you ...

    What a fair world ay?

    Looks sweet - Once again, smoked indicators are a must £250 Not a bad price either.

Its a set price but they have about 100 colours to choose from & if not can get a colour bought in for you...

    So worth every penny IMHO...

    Looking smart Ben!

    Thanks, that's not bad at all. Think I might go for it next I'm over in the UK. Now to find the right shade of anthracite, were there many shades to choose from?

    Looks cracking mate - that price is very very good as well. I was quoted a shed load more than that for a similar colour (hence why I haven't had them done.....).

    I think the colours go fine together. Keep it dark

    I would consider adjusting the ride hight though.

    There are loads of shades to choose from, and even if they haven't got one that takes your fancy, they can custom colour it for an extra £30 and then its pretty much any colour you want!

    Cheers for the compliments lads! I agree she does need lowering though... But the suspensions settled now (the photos were taken just after the car was put on the ground) so its looking its old self again & not like the monster truck in the photos
