    Will be very very shortly - I had them several times in the past and would always spend more to have them over lowering springs etc.

    My pleasure mate - may I ask - what wheels are they, and what size are the tyres?

    Cheers, Chris

    Is it possible to adjust ride height on coilovers? (I am thinking it is, but have limited knowledge haha). If so, how much could you adjust ride height by? Surely in the snow you could lift the ride height to stop your front bumper becoming a snow plough?

    Some really nice looking cars in this thread though, very nice indeed. I have come to the conclusion that if I do anything to my car it'd be lower it and put some decent sized wheels on it. Other than that, I love it!

    Yes you can alter your ride height normally but if you dont know what your doing you will need a good mechanic to do it - personally, just dont take a low lowered car out in the snow!
