    look what i fitted this morning

    First on the list was coilovers, before that i has eibachs fitted but the front always looked too high. Although there's another inch left to lower them, i can't because i wouldn't be able to get down my street

    before with eibachs



    Now with coilovers



    Although there looks not to be mush of a difference in the pics but in real life it looks loads better.

    Now for the speed bumps on my street with no weight in the car



    And the second item, powerpipe and dump valve. The powerpipe came in red and i decided to spray it star silver (rocker cover aswell soon)

    Looking nice crazyshad1, ****ing speedbumps are a reel pain in the ass
    but fortunatly we dont have many at all around boston or in lincolshire
    they only tend to be on housing estates (council housing ,not slaging anyone off who lives in council housing) round here,
    not in surounding villages

    Looks cool.

    Its the Irmscher add on thata the pain as it sticks out forward.

    My bumper is lower than that but sweeps back and clears those humps fine.

    Hey mate

    Looks good! Speed humps and tables in York are getting silly in places! There's only one route to get to my house avoiding any bumps.

    Where abouts are you mate? I think i might have seen your car sometime.

    Thanks for the comments guys, makes me feel good about my car.

    I've got spax coilovers on, their a little firmer but not a crashy ride like the stock shocks and eibach springs but maybe thats down 2 the 18's and small rubber.

    I live in Barlby but the misses lives in Acomb, thats where i spend most of my time.

    I'm trying to leave the car looking as stock as when it left the show room, i'm considering on putting the o.e. alloys or some irmscher sport stars. Opinions?
