    Hi mate congrats on your purchace you can go low as you like up to bout 100mm on coilovers which im looking to get after seeing the results theres a place called hottunig on here doing special offers for members there is also a thread on here of someone fitting them to a compact if you decide to get coilys make sure you get the shorter droplinks il see if i can find the thread, as far as rolling and flareing go its entirely up to you but i have been advised against it as it can bow the pannel, spaceing the wheels im not sure on so i wont advise im sure someone can tho as they are all very helpful people on here hope this has gave you abit of an idea that you were asking for

    you can go low, or you can go wide, but the two together means you usually have to trade something off.
