    Looking great, what wheels are they, also what suspension kit and what sort or price did they charge you? I am phoning Star tomorrow to book a service and to get prices for suspension kits, coilovers looking about £800 fitted.

    What did you think about quality of Star's work, is meant to be top quality? Also how low have you got the coilovers?

    What offset are your wheels? And what tyres/size are you running?

    Where abouts are Star based?

    Thanks Simon. Any reason you went for 215s?
    I'm getting some 8.5x19ET49s and can't decide on 215, 225, or 235s...

    i wouldnt of been able to go as low if i got 235s plus i like the stretched look. with it being et45 they sit too close to the arch so when lowered they would of scuffed on the liner screw inside the front arch

    Im guessing the discs are rusty as by the looks of it it's just had a good wash and wax.
    A good leathering round some b-roads will scrub that rust of no mither!

    Looking good. Can't help but think the wheels would look better in a lighter colour.

    Nice wheels and stance! (I actually raised mine after a while: touching parking ramps became such a nuisance).

    Anyways, just wanted to make sure you knew those screws can be removed. In the front, the tabs can also be folded back once the screw is removed. Just be gentle while doing it...
