    Nice coupe, love the wheels.

    As for drop on 17's really depends on what sort of look you want I'd 40-50mm looks good

    ive got coilovers on now on the lowest setting but its now too low to be practical. It was 60mm all round which was about right for sensibleness(sp)

    Very low


    60mm
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    Both lowered 30/30 on Weitec springs only, standard shockies, neither are silly low, both have a comfortable ride and are able to negotiate speed bumps reasonable well, admitedly, the white Mk4 was on 17's till a huge pothole put paid to that, mine is now running on those silver steelies which are 15's
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!
