    Your audi looks bad ass. I prefer the front grill u have over mines, apart from that yours is the same colour and shape as mine so it's nice to see how mine can look like. How much did it cost to lower the suspension?

    cheers mate, the LM's are off now and some fat fives are on, looks even better in my opinion.

    umm well they were around 460 for the coilovers i think and it cost me a mcdonalds meal for my mate to fit them and for me to help pass spanners then tracking and alignment was around 80
