    I have a standard ride height s line and fitted 19" with the same tyres and not had any problems. Does make the car look even higher though! You can lower it without rubbing aslong as you have 215 35 19's fitted (225 if your not decking it)

    As said fella you will be fine on standard set up. Sure N8 will be along to confirm anyway. What alloys you getting? I see your car quite alot parked outside your company looks good ;)

    It's standard set up, dunno about lowering it..... Hmm
    If I do I'll opt for 225 instead. As fir the rims there are a couple I like. Not 100% sure yet.
    I think I'll get the Tyres in 1st.

    IMO if you are fitting 19s you will have to lower it as it will look like a monster truck!
