    My Phantom Black S3 fitted with 19"BBS CHs and lowered with H&Rs!

    Hi Guys,

    Here are some pics of my new baby. I have tinted the windows, lowered the suspension and slapped on 19" BBS CHs.

    Looks great and the best colour too

    Could you post some more details on the wheels and lowering. I am very keen on the BBS wheels but am not sure what offset and tyre size and where to buy them. Also has the ride changed much, I guess this could be down to the lowering though.

    Thanks, A4

    Hi, Wheels are 19" x 8J and the offset is ET50. I have used 235/35/19s. The tyre used has got a slightly thicker side wall then other 235s I've seen and because of this I've had to remove a screw on each of the fenderliners due to it catching. I reckon the ride has improved as the H&R spring gives a nice soft ride in comparison with the stock springs which IMHO are quite hard...handling is second to none

    Very nice. Did you use only springs or a full suspension kit. Also can you give more details please.

    Thanks

    Phantom Black S3, DSG, Buckets, Satnav, Bose, Bluetooth Prep, Heated Seats, Interior Light pack, Highbeam Assist, parking sensors. Done: Lowered H&R Springs, Spacers, Full Miltek Turbo Back, HPFP - Next on list: Evoms, Forge Re-circ Valve, REVO Stage 2+ and REVO DSG Software when available! - Then, no doubt Uprated brakes will be needed, (Better get saving)
