    my motto :

    lower first, alloys later.

    If you fit alloys.... you won even know they are they, if you fit suspension, you will "feel" the difference !

    I've lowered my b5 by 40mm on Apex springs, cost me 90 the set, I also had to change my back shocks, as they were completely shot....20% harder than before 45 for each side, got a mechanic friend to fit em, all in all cost me 210 with labour, theres about 1 inch space between the wheel and arch now, does'nt look over the top, and handles like a dream, was considering lowering it by 50mm, but gonna see what my 18"s look like first.

    Z82, they were bought by a friend in the trade, he charged them to me at cost and just 30.00 for fitting new lower springs and 2 back shocks...
