    Thanks Will take a bit of getting used to as it looks a little boy racer ish now, which I perhaps wasn't going for that look so much.

    They call that stance 'reverse rake' lol, front could do with another 10mm lower in my opinion. Nice rims though, nice car colour too, just need some facelift rear lights to freshen it up a bit!

    Yep, like that. Nice colour combination too. +1 re lowering the front a bit more (or, dare I say it, raise the rear a bit). Or was there a load of sharp sand in the boot at the time?

    Old wheels were in the boot when the pic was taken, which weighed it down a little but not much.
    The car is only on lowering springs and not coilies, so would have to get another set of springs or invest in some coilies before I could make fine-tuning adjustments. The drop is meant to be even from them, but I guess it's always easier said than done.

    I definitely agree that it needs evening out - I'd actually be inclined to raise the rear rather than drop the front any lower. The rear is rubbing a little on the arch liner under acceleration or if i were to have people in the back. I could swap the 15mm spacers for 10mm spacers, which would probably stop that; however I'd lose the 'stanced' look somewhat - Would much rather trim a small portion of the arch liner with Stanley and make sure it gets properly hosed out on each wash going forward to prevent rot.

    jojo I've got facelift rear lights on my birthday list for the summer from the mrs
    Wouldn't mind getting an LCR splitter on there at somepoint too.

    They are Kingpin RC-1 alloys. ~£500 without tyres, so not bad. But I did have to pay out another £50 for rear spacers and spigot rings.

    Nice car mate. Lovely colour!

    Nice dish on the rims. Invest in some decent coilovers, drop it all round, will look so much better.

    Thats what i worry about when i get my coilovers on and the alloys refurbed.

    The wheels look good though, dont think it looks too chavvy.

    You planning on getting some spacers to sort the stance out?

    4x old wheels and tyres will be over 100KG probably dude, that's a LOT of weight in the back, and totally explains the arse down stance.

    Looks smart. As Jo said, facelift rear lights would freshen it up nicely.

    Wheels look great man, but face-lift rear lights look a bit cheap imo but if u tinted them all red they would look smashing!

    You need the holders and swop the indicator bulbs for orange ones, or they blink white. The orange bulbs don't fit the original holders as the pins to lock them down are different.

    I was afraid you were going to say that. I might see if I can get some coating to put on clear bulbs, as ultimately that's what the amber ones are IIRC
