    Question Guess what i went and treated myself to last friday..! :D

    I've only gone and bought myself some of these!













    Only problem is, car badly needs lowering by 20mm or so now, big gappage What you think chaps? Tasteful or tat! £455 for 4 17"'s with 4x Toyo budgets on.

    Should be able to lower 20mm eeeeasy peasy on standard shocks. No rubbing / scraping of tyres and arches yet, so looking good And my shocks are in awesome conditiontoo , nice and firm. Any lower than 20mm and I think it'd look silly. I want it to look like a GSi eventually I'll get some better pics on Sunday when I clean it.

    Hmm. The tyres are *just* level with the rear arch atm, don't want the wheels sat in the arches as with standard shocks, if I have people in the back it *will* scrape. Not looking too bad for a £450 motor at the mo though (Nearly spent that on the damn things :P)

    I can't see what we're looking at

    You got orange side repeaters maybe?




    seriously though, IMO it needs lowering 30mm minimum. Should still be ok even with people in the back (unless you cram 3 weight watchers rejects in there at once!). Oh and you need a steadier hand so the pics aren't so blurry too
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    Looks good dude. As said, lowering would set it off a treat

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
