    If its just lowering on springs, the 30/30 Eibach pro kit is popular on coupes. I have it fitted on mine.

    looks good Liam.... Id seriously recommend the same kit as mine - u can get the coupe specific kit (full shocks & springs) for 220 and they'll fit it for about 50 and its only up the road in Peterlee.

    I'll send ya the link if ur interested.

    They claim 40/30 but dropped mine about 55 all round. Should be having the same kit fitted to a coupe turbo in the forthcoming weeks so would defo recommend the same kit for yours....

    OR

    Eibachs if u just want springs - everyone seems to rant and rave on here about them

    The new rims suit the coupe and as said above it'll look even better when lowered and cleaned

    Looks nice mate, a set of VXR brakes, lowering and a good wash and you'll have one sweet looking coupe.

    Really need a big brake conversion to pull it off though, and the VXR brakes are 321mm at the front, will 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
