    Lowering S-Line

    Has anyone here lowered an S-line by just a spring kit using the standard shocks? I'm looking at H&R springs but not sure whether to go for Sport or Super Sport kit? 35mm or 50mm? Assuming approximate drop based upon non S-line car?

    Thanks

    Lee

    i had H&R's and wasn't low enough, most photos that i found at the time were too dark and didn't really show how much of a gap there was in the arches. pics here really show the height: AP coilovers vs H&R 50mm springs - pics & review

    thats why you'd have electronic management, see a pot hole, press a button and raise it all the way up instantly

    I'm not completely ruling it out but I just think the money that I could spend on air ride and new wheels would be better spent on my next car with a bit more pace
