    Unfortunately mate you can't have it all for that sort of budget...

    At that budget I'd say you've got 2 choices..

    1: hottuning coilovers.. you can get nice and low, handling will be improved over standard, ride will be harsh though

    2: cheap-ish lowering springs and ARB bushes: something like Apex will be about £100 and are decent quality lowering springs.. only going to lower about 30-40mm though, then with the poly ARB bushes you'll get the improved handling..

    the 2nd option is based on your shocks not being totally f*cked though!

    Quality suspension is big business and as such has big price tags for the best stuff

    Having followed a few of your threads now I'd say personally just for now get some lowering springs and the LM reps with tyres and you'll be a lot happier with the car.. it'll look a million times better and handling a little better..

    then if you want to, save some cash and get your poly bushes and uprated shocks or coilovers

    well i can go 1 better, mine are eibach pro's, 18" staggered alloys (mv1's) 4 adults, 1 child and a full boot of luggage, no rubbing at all, even over speed bumps, ps i'm no supprised as they are designed with this car in mind. and the wheels are factory so are designed to fit all the way into the arches with no problems.
