    Stuck in a rut with the coupe

    Hay lads/lassies new here was currently on MIG and lookin for tuns of ideas for the coupe av bought, its star silver and am in total as to whether to lower the thing 20mm and slap on 18" alloys or lower it 40mm and go for 17" or 18"????? f-knows
    So lookin and open for ideas and hopefully some picks if use have time?
    Really fancy the boss 18" street 5 spokes (gloss black with polished rim) or the finichi 5 spoke style or a do like the lambo style

    Hiya mate and welcome to AOC...

    Have you thought about Coilovers? Here is a pic of mine to give you some idea of the ride height...and its sat on 18's


    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!

    Not sure to be honest...... The beauty of coilovers is you can adjust the height to suit you...

    I would guess if anything a 50mm drop on the front and 30-40mm on the rear

    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!

    coilovers were an idea but the girlfriends just passed her driving test so looking for a quick lowering spring and alloys just to neaten the coupe up.. judging by her driving am not going to spend alot on it as i dont think it will last long.
    Cheers for the help and think al go for the 40mm springs with the 18" or 18.5" lambos. will get pics up after av cleaned it up.

    The offset of the alloys is just as important as the wheel size when lowering. Mine is lowered 30mm at rear with 18's but because offset isnt quite right it scrubs. But if the offset was right i would have no problem with 18's and 30mm drop.

    heres mine

    For free hugs PM me.

    For sex, pm cabriomatt.
