    Right everyone great news I have finally fitted my JOM Coilovers today and I love them such a great ride and feels so great I can thank oly for the great deal on them and nick (prawn) for the ARB info and massive thanks to my mate dan for fitting them !!

    here is the before picture, I was just running standard shocks with Koni springs



    And now with my coilovers fitted and I love them



    The only issue I'm having is that my bbs wheels are actually wider then expected and I'm running 205/40/18 on the fronts! So dan was good enough to fit 5mm spacers as the shocks where very close to my front wheels I will go lower in the future but first will let the settle and see how it goes from there but I love my ride now !!!

    Also got home and found this waiting for me,



    My new intercooler this thing is massive and feels great a good build! I can't wait now to start getting things fitted!!

    Hope everyone is enjoying the thread !!

    Excellent news Bobby!

    Do you have lots of stuff in the boot in the above pic? the rears usually don't sit quite that low straight away (assuming Dan left the adjusters in still?)

    Looks great though, let the front settle a tad, level it up, and job's a goodun

    Bad call Deeman

    Bobbys car got written off in a nasty accident that was 100% non fault. The insurance company screwed poor bobby over with a daft offer, and he's now cut his losses and is rolling around London in an Imprezza turbo wagon instead!
