    I am, but they are really expensive at the moment. I'm not prepared to pay £300+ for second hand wheels that need refurbing... Especially the popular ones that suit the car..

    Yes I am pleased Sandra, I thought the front may have gone down a little more, but they may settle a bit more yet. The one thing I am pleased with is that although it's lowered it the ride quailty hasn't been adversely affected. These springs are not far away from OE rating figures...

    It's got a slightly firmer ride now, but not bone jarring. Normal driving is ok, but over speed humps you can tell.

    Car doesn't squat so much now either when accelarating.....

    I rate these springs over other makes to be honest.

    Looks good Alan, I'm a big fan of not going too low!

    It's amazing how much better it looks just a bit lower than stock...

    It's lowered roughly 25mm on the back and 50mm on the front. It's just right in my opinion.

    I really don't know. I'm finding it hard to justify the cost of a set of second hand wheels to be honest. OE are soooo expensive, but after market ones look gash in my opinion.

    Any suggestions?
