    Soo, reason it still looks pants is because it is the first mod I have actually done on the car over standard. I just thought I would chuck some pics up anyway though, as it is a start at least :)

    Fronts are about halfway down, and the rears have 1 - 1.5cm left to go. I need this car to drive nicely and last with the miles I do, so dont want stupid low, went for driveability/comfort mostly. Got rid of the majority of the arch gap even though it still looks quite a lot in the pics. Overall I'm happy :)

    Looks just fine!

    However, if you wanted driver comfort, I would have gone for uprated shocks and springs rather than (can be) hard coilovers.

    Thanks dude!

    Ah I don't think I would go for shocks and springs again. Had them on a mk2 golf which was my first car a couple of years ago, then I changed my mind and wanted to slam it. Then my mk3 in my sig was down about 100-110 mm and the ride was better plus I could adjust them to how I like :)

    I'm happy with the comfort of these at the moment, plus I haven't decided if I will get 18" or 19" wheels yet, or offsets etc, so will be easier for me to adjust how the car looks in the long run :)

    What coilovers did you go for buddy?

    I found my Weitec's to be comfier than my S-Line suspension!

    Ye okay it's a little bouncier than before, but the rebound when you hit a pothole isn't like crashing into the back of a bus anymore :)

    Looks good, but needs slamming :yes:
