    I've lowered mine on 30mm H&R springs, 12mm spacers all round on et45 rims. Forgotten if they're 8 or 8.5j, but 235/35/19 give a very slight stretch all round:

    This picture was taken a few days after 35mm H&R's were fitted, its settled a bit more since then. My wheels are 18" ET45 but have spacers in the garage to bring it down to ET35 for the front and ET33 for the rear, need to find time to fit them. I'll be fitting my B5 spring perches in spring to bring the front down a bit more.
