    Lowered or not lowered

    Hi Just wanted to here your views been thinking of gettin my car lowered,but i cant help but think will it make a lot of difference to me i cant tell sometimes if a car is lowered or not,would be interested to hear peoples views on wot they thought after they got there own cars lowered would value anyones opinion on this.I am sure it improves the look of the car but not sure myself to go ahead with it yet...

    if your botherd about looks and handling then def get it lowered.

    if your on a budget get eibach springs as most onhere rate them.

    i have apex springs which i find are shite for general town driving.


    if you have oodles of doe then go for a full koni or eibach setup.

    if you want the race car look which is ultra cool imo then look up coilovers and slam your car upto 70mm.

    yeah want to make the look well so you would recomend lowereing 70mm sounds really low,was thinking about 40mm,did not think 70mm was possible,so car in your opinion would look a lot better then.

    imo all cars look better lowered but you will loose that factory feel that i quite liked.

    with the coilovers they are ajustable so you can pick your height according to your driving needs.

    Rember when lowering you adjust the camber and therefore wear the inner edged of teh tyres, something to bear in mind
