    Wheel spacers is what you need if you are looking for a wider track

    Suspension will do diddly to that.

    As mentioned, springs make the car look lower but if you want your wheels further out then it's spacers that you need.

    The stanadard version which is not a sport or s.line
    the back end looks abit high just wondering 30mm is enough to bring it down just slightly lower than the s.line version if you know what i mean

    Alot of people sed Eibach pro kit is good but they only lower 30mm

    But Eibach sportline springs can lower front- 45-50mm and rear 35-40mm nt sure if they are as good

    your car will be dropped lower than most as the sport is slightly lower than yours and the sline is lower than that, around 15mm a go i think so you will achive a much larger drop from the springs

    Just to throw another choice into the mix, I've recently fitted mine with H&R -50mm springs and I think they're absolutely brilliant! They give an excellent quality ride with what I consider to be the perfect drop at both front & rear, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anybody :icon_thumright:

    You can't go wrong with either tbh mate, but very good makes. All I can say though is I have H&R's fitted to mine and imo they're pretty much as perfect as you're gonna get!

    Eibach seems cheaper for lowering 45-50mm in front and back 35-40mm

    H&R is bit expensive
