    Noticeable difference after lowering?

    As above really, is lowering by say 30mm, really noticeable in the cars' handling, or does it require a few more bits and bobs (more power etc) to be done before it really affects the car?

    It's just I'm toying with the idea, and while it looks nice, I'd like a noticeable change in handling too!

    How would more power effect the handling?
    Yes I will be noticable, get the Whiteline RARB on there aswell


    Edit- What suspension set up are you looking at? How much are you looking to spend?

    Very noticible, I went from standard SXI/SRI suspension to Eibach Pro-Kit springs (30mm) on VXR dampers and it's improved the handling to no end. The only thing is living in Glasgow the roads in the city are terrible and it can be quite harsh at times, great when out on the open road though!

    I was thinking a 30mm drop on eibachs for a start. With regards to extra power altering handling, what I meant was, with more power comes a faster acceleration from 0mph, so wondered if the stiffer suspension would get the power to the road a lot better or no real change.

    From the sounds of things, seems like a decent mod, but to be honest I'm not really up on my car mods so all I really thought about was a set of stiffer lowering springs.
