    nice one mate, i'll see ya on saturday then!!!
    wheels are personal preference IMO, as long as you like them(and they aint 3 spokes!) then its cool, get it dropped straight away too, mine handled really well std set up till about 10k when the susspension started to sag!

    I had a corsa on apex -40mm shocks and srings with 195/45/16 wheels. It held the road like glue and never thought the astra would come close. But gues what. It holds the road like shit to a blanket, and the ride comfort is great. Better than the corsa all round.

    The coupe handles a lot better after springs or a suspension it. Lighting coupe you have the irmscher springs right?. I have a Koni setup on mine , very happy
