    Pic request....

    Hi, thinking of lowering my coupe.

    Does anyone have pics of a coupe lowered on standard wheels, 16 inch.

    How much would you reccommend lowering it by if Im not going to go bigger than 17's?

    Thanks

    Coupe's have the biggest arches so you can get away with dropping 60mm or more with the right offset wheels. Have a look in either the www.astragallery.co.uk or in the wheel gallery for ideas and pics.

    What's the errr for TeeJay?

    He's only dropped it 30mm, it's not like he's slammed it on the standard shocks is it?

    The errrrr is as in "er, let me think about that one", aimed at Mark who asked if they were standard shocks, when it says so in the post.

    I think it looks great, if I didn't it would have been "ewwwww, nasty"

    np. we've all done it.

    I do it all the time at work. I am really getting used to the taste of humble pie

    anyway... back on topic, who else has pics of standard coupe's on 16's with a 30mm drop??
