    lower it, stick some 18's on it and get facelift front bumper. Maybe de-badge?

    To be honest with S-line suspension and 19's i don't think i would lower it unless thats what really floats your boat.

    Nice looking car mate, wheels look the part. MY11 rears and a de-badge will look great. If you want to go lower get a set of h&r 40/45mm springs, so you'll see a drop of 15-20mm

    lee78 i bought the wheels of a guy from here i gave £450 for the wheels alone and then i bought mid range tyres for another £450

    olliea3 i used a kit from euro car parts as they are our main supplier from work so i would have warranty from them but they have been great :) i had to get the resistor pack though, yeah they blew my wiper motor but have been spot on since i replaced it touch wood :) i cant really justify spending mega money doing OEM xenons just yet

    Nice colour looks really well.
    The ride height looks spot on with the 19's! I would think carefully before dropping it especially if you like the ride now. Black grill looks good too.

    You can pay on the day, but if you pay now, you get queue jump and its cheaper I think! The show is inside the Telford International Arena. There will be outside parking but all the show cars (including mine :wub:) will be inside the show hall! It's great inspiration going to these shows, and seeing different wheels/ideas etc
