    What width are the wheels too would be a help Mines dropped 40mm on the same tyres as you have and its fine...loads of room left.

    Search on here for lowering kits - there are LOADS of them....depending on how much cash you have depends on what you get. I have a Wietec Ultra GT kit on mine and its nice.

    Lowest springs you can get would be coilovers...but budget in for a new front anti roll bar as your drive shaft will hump it when you go low.

    Drop the R,....the wheels are S8 alloys and will be a replica I would have thought.
