    Its been a very expensive few weeks....56K Warning!

    ....In a good way of course!

    Some of you may remember this thread http://www.m1gst.com/vb/showthread.php?t=56903, well this is how my car stood up until the past few weeks

    First these appeared through the letter box;



    So i got them fitted, and at that point the car looked like this....



    Until today when it now looks like this;








    I'm not sure about how high the car still seems to sit at the front, the springs have had about a week + to settle, so i think thats all they will do, perhaps i should have went for the sportline kit. Oh well. Next on the agenda is giving her a good service, upgrading the brakes, and and she's booked into get a new exhaust fitted on the 4th November! I also clayed and waxed it with some Megs about a fortnight ago, but i think the full effect has worn off by now!

    Then, just maybe i might be happy with it


    Also, i now have some SXi wheels as pictured and some SXi springs for sale (-15mm lower than standard Astra Springs). I'll stick a post in the for sale section later on tonight hopefully - PM me for more details

    The springs are only -30mm lower, so its only an extra 15mm on mines, it looks good at the rear, but i may look to go a bit lower to the front in the future, skint now though

    Cheers for all the comments guys, tis appreciated


    Edit: I thought the wheels were fairly common, were they not the wheels that came with the 888?
