First time I told my neighbour what I was doing to my car, he went silent.
He is seriously into his VAG and owns a red corrado and a red golf driver.
He couldn't belive for one I had only got 7.5" alloys. Not used a stretched tire, only going for a 30mm drop, not smoothing the car.
Now his cars are nice:
Thats the best pic, haven't got the latest pic of his golf.
However the fixation on these scene for me really doesn't appeal. Think about the car's drivability. These drops are serious arse killers not to mention the damage to the car itself potentially, subframes etc. Plus our roads aren't the nicest.
He hated the wheels I went for BBS RK's but they look amazing on the car. Performance is great also, they spin up with no difference to the 16" so I have not lost anything in acceleration.
He would have gone for BBS RCs for example, a heavy wheel on a car with not much brute force.
Also the euro look really makes a car look cute, for me a car has to look fast while standing still. I like the agressive look my car now has.
It's a bit of a loss as to why everyone chases this look. Is it an art form, for aesthetics or am I missing something here about untold performance statistics.
Do you actually like the euro look on astras? Is this just a fad.
I think I am definitely missing something here so would really like to see your take on this...
