    i hate marmite, but i would say your wheels are more nutella

    did you have to do any filling of kerb marks or were they in pretty good shape?

    not going to go to low just as low as the back will go with the adjusters on and then level out the front . About 45mm i reckon .Cant go to low as my work car park has speed bumps otherwise i would slam it.

    Finally got my car back together ! was waiting for a nice day but two weeks on and i gave up waiting , so today i got wet.

    [​IMG]


    I like the look thank good was a little worried . The only thing with my aps is the back isn't as low as i would like , iv only got the black bit in from the adjusters and its still not enough but im hoping they will settle as iv only driven up and down the street .

    Nice and different, it could do with being another inch lower with those stretched tyres on in my opinion. Good work though. :thumbsup:

    I really want it to go lower but my aps wont let me at the back . Already running them without adjusters in . Hopefully they settle !
    Is there any way of going lower? i have read about people fitting fk rear springs does this work ok with the ap setup ?
