    You need a full rear shot, that'll really show off the stance.

    Looks good, lovely and clean just how they should be. Where you get the spacers from? Love it that im seeing more threads with lava grey in :)
    Any more plans? And how do you find the ride quailty at 50mm? Agree with Akash need a rear end photo to show off the stance.

    Thanks for the kind words, I will try get a rear shot of it when I get chance! I can't rate the springs highly enough, the ride quality is extremely comfortable and the handling performance is absolutely fantastic, it really is :cool:

    Looks perfect and no rubbing with 50mm drop you say? What size are your wheels as I'm tempted to do front and back when I get round to it instead of just back now

    Thanks

    DO IT!!!! :cool:



    225/40 matey

    Possibly mate, but I can't guarantee that you wouldn't experience any rubbing as some people seem to have issues with even the 12mm ones (although I didn't :shrug:)

    Correct :icon_thumright:

    Thanks for you kind comments guys :thumbsup: Somebody else has got the pleasure of driving around in it showing it off now though as I sold it on Wednesday! Was a great car and gave me no issues whatsoever in the whole time I owned it, the new owner seemed chuffed to bits with it aswell which is always nice and makes all that hard work keeping it looking mint feel worthwhile :cool:
