    yer looks good mate.

    quick question: is it advisable to go for the springs and shocks kit rather than just the springs? or are the standard shocks etc ok to leave on?

    Personally i think the ride is allot better with shocks too. i love mine, its a touch firmer than the S-line but its so planted.

    Sorry for the later reply but dont have internet access on weekend really, to answer your questions the car is not an s-line but has full sline kit and interior, dont know what to get between springs and coilovers but heard that coilovers can be easily adjusted? (how much to adjust? this would be handy in the winter) got a price range of about 400-500 to spend, about dropping the car i have 17" alloys, dont want to compramise the ride too much although i hear if i buy myself a good set of coils then it wont anyway what do you guys suggest?

    I been thinking about those AP's dan, what are they like compared to stock suspension? Is yours an S line or Sport btw? Also been looking at the JOM redlines- just better made JOM bluelines which Damian from DPM rates better iirc in the cheap coil sector.
