    What size are you after?

    If you want 18's you'll need to lower your car or it'll look like a roller skate.

    Fair do's

    18" x 8" with an offset of ET35 would be spot on. Thats what I have on mine and they're bang on the money size-wise. Mines dropped 40mm but there's plenty of room still so cant see you going down 50mm being an issue.

    EDITED TO ADD: JUst be aware you will need a new front ARB as your drive shaft will hump the standard one when you lower your car.

    sorry to ask a question in this topic, but as we are on the topic, how much does it roughly cost to lower 4cm, and get a new front ARB? with labour?

    Not sure about the ARB, but labour on the springs is 3 hours for the fronts and an hour for the rears as it's a case of removing the entire hub and strut at the front.
    Plus whatever you spend on parts obviously, say upwards of Ł150 for a set of springs?
