    Hi Bailey, car looks great with the new alloys. I agree, lower it will finish it off nicely. ;)

    Got a set of -50mm H&R springs on mine matey with exactly the same 'genuine' wheels as yours, have absolutely no issues whatsoever with rubbing/catching or speed bumps etc and the handling is awesome for just a set of springs, I honestly can't praise them enough on looks and performance :cool:

    Thanks for the advice, i dont know what to go for? Coils or Springs and Shocks? I am thinking 50mm drop though on it.

    Anybody know where you get the kits from? any sites? ebay links etc etc

    think a little votex would make it a bit more aggressive apart from the rear... deffo spolier.

    Not too sure about V-maxx to be honest...
    I think your best bet is to speak to daimain (think thats his name) from DPM... he is normally in this forum with offers and recommendations.

    Looks good James. You pleased with how she looks? Regarding lowering as said send a pm over to damien @ DPM. He a good guy and be able to recommend some good set ups for you. Also if your looking for an kits try votex you could get the lower lip for the front, side skirts, rear valance and rear spoiler. A few of the guys have that kit on there cars. Looks quite good

    I definatly will be getting front splitter, side skirts, rear spoiler and i am gonna keep the back as it is without the votex, the rear splitter is horrid.

    Got a few more snaps of my car, i gave it a clean today after i got back from the Renault World Series at Silverstone
