    Updated spec of the coupe...(Pics)

    40mm lowering springs, de-badged 4 slat grille, K&N panel filter, iridium spark plugs and irmy chrome heater rings.

    Saving up now for full exhaust system then re-map...(that'll tak a while tho!)

    Same as EVO, what springs and did you get dampers aswell? Haven't been overly impressed by some coupes lowered 40mm, but yours seems to sit really nicely.

    re: Updated spec of the coupe...(Pics)

    Cheers for the comments everyone, is looking and sitting so much better, im quite chuffed. at first the back end sat quite high and i was a bit miffed, but it has dropped down a bit since the pics!

    they are venturi springs on it (std dampers), nice and low, hasnt mucked up the handling, less body roll and still comfy over the bumps! Impressed considering theyre not a big name brand...

    Im not too fussed bout the perfect handling of ma car as i dont use it for thrashin on the twisties, too scared to go fast on bends after ma crash in ma ST170! :roll: Im OK in a straight line tho! Just like it to sit nice and be a comfy drive...

    The grille was £43 and Springs £87.
