    Pic Request - Coupe slammed on 17's please

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section? Im after pics of Astra Coupe's slammed on 17's. I have some FK coilovers, yet to be fitted, and will prob be purchasing a set of 17" Arospeed force 10's next month, just want to see some pictures to help me decide if it would look ok.

    Any and all help is appreciated.

    Cheers

    How low is slammed? Mine is about 20mm lower than the standard Coupe Turbo making it a 40mm total drop from the standard Coupes.

    Thanks Nasayr, another stunning coupe, I think I have seen your car about before in Luton. Im considering 18's too, just wanted to see what 17's looked like, though from the look of ur pics, 18's seem spot on.
