    on your car i think 40mm will be enough too be honest mate, keep a decent ride quality aswell.

    i'd say 40mm and bigger wheels is the way to go!

    i have been planing bigger wheels and a 40mm drop for a while now but then thought about keeping my rims and going lower as the wheels i have now are only 16s so shouldnt be much rubbing on a 60mm drop. but the springs i was looking at are a 60 front and a 35 rear, i like the subtle nose down look but i dont know if 60/35 is a subtle or big nose down look lol if the 60/35 wont look to front heavy may get the 60mms

    i went 60/40 on mine with shocks and everything was fine until i fitted my 120 kilo speaker box in the boot, now i have had to change my rear back to 35mm i still left the front 60mm and its all good, just remember low is the way to flow and sideways is the only way forward.
