    Very nice!

    What suspension setup is that? Has it been lowered or has it got the sports pack? (20mm lower as standard). Reason I ask is I'm considering some 18's for mine, and I'm curious as to what sort of arch gap I'm going to be looking at on the sports pack springs as I don't really want to change the suspension set up if I can avoid it, but I also don't want it looking like a 4x4!!

    At the moment it is standard shocks with 40mm GSF lowering springs fitted. I am not sure how long i will keep this setup, as i am considering to fit a sports spring and shock pack.

    I have to say the car looks good not quite sure of the rims and the spring have not droped the car 40mm as it looks stock.

    Heres mine on 18"s with just H&R springs

    The shocks don't set the hight so I would say your car prob only got a 20mm drop if that.

    The ride is sweet and it works even better on the track the down side is the shock on roads with a dip, you find the shocks don't take up the slack and you find your self bouncing on the springs, but cornering is greatly improved and the car dropped about 35mm minimum.

    I have also orders another set in the SALE going on here for my 1.8TQ as well which should be 40mm drop.

    I would recommend H&R to anyone.

    Nice looking car, I was bidding on a set of them Toora 18's on ebay a couple of months ago. They look very good on a B5, was wondering how they'd look. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif
