    Go for the JOM kit.
    the ride will be a lot better than the
    choppy ride you will get on 95k mile
    shock.

    Looking good, will look great once dropped. As others have said I wouldn't put springs on 95k mile old shocks. Coilovers all the way.

    Pre actually trying them out this would have been my opinion too, but 6 months of running though and they're fine ... so far [​IMG]

    coilovers ftw i would choose them over just lowering springs alllllll day long (speak to n8 for v-maxx coilovers they are so nice and comfortable ) mine are still spot on and they have been on for easy 7000 miles now still not a single noise from them

    The headliner was fiddly but not hard, the only way to get in out is through the boot which is smaller so you have to try and bend without creating it, very hard and frustrating, the pillars are easy on so are the other fittings, other than that take the windscreen out ha, the front plate is stuck on with thick double sided tape from halfords which is gash, it keeps peeling off, but I need to bend the plate round bait now

    Quick update, lamin-x has settled now, and looks ok, can't decide whether to fit side markers and maybe spray wheels matte black, opinion?
    Also developed a tinny like rattle in engine bay at 1800rpm, any ideas? Sounds like a heat shield, does it standing still and drivIng and in gear and dipped clutch
