    new wheels on van but needs lowered

    a have just bought the van and added new 17" wheels but it needs lowered as sitting to high.not looking to go down the coilover route just want the springs.not wanting to slam it either just a bit lower so if anyone nose of what springs a should get or if you have a cheap set lying around let me no.this weekend it gets the silver centre dash, gsi clocks, sri front seats.other question does the gsi clocks fit straight into the plug on ma van or do a need to do a bit of wiring?cheers

    up to you really mate, you will find the springs to fit your model easy enough, the question is "how much you want to spend" really?
    is it the 1.7dti you got?

    30mm springs would set it off nicely
