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

    check out user ardenbluevan. that's my mate rob's mk4 van.
    its got agsi front which is low anyway, but lowered 180mm from standard on porsche wheels with no arch work (until it goes lower!!)

    you know its too low when the chassis hits the wishbones pushing them forwards...pushing the bushes out!!

    next step = custom wishbones = lower!!
