    Hi Guys,

    Here are some pics of my new baby. I have tinted the windows, lowered the suspension and slapped on 19" BBS CHs.

    Looks great and the best colour too :)

    Could you post some more details on the wheels and lowering. I am very keen on the BBS wheels but am not sure what offset and tyre size and where to buy them. Also has the ride changed much, I guess this could be down to the lowering though.

    Thanks, A4

    Hi, Wheels are 19" x 8J and the offset is ET50. I have used 235/35/19s. The tyre used has got a slightly thicker side wall then other 235s I've seen:think: and because of this I've had to remove a screw on each of the fenderliners due to it catching. I reckon the ride has improved as the H&R spring gives a nice soft ride in comparison with the stock springs which IMHO are quite hard...handling is second to none:rockwoot:

    Very nice. Did you use only springs or a full suspension kit. Also can you give more details please.

    Thanks
