    Here's a few recent pics from last week while it was a make-shift wedding car / holiday wagen in Scotland / the Lakes / Liverpool...

    We did 900 miles without a fault (apart from some serious ground-clearance / ride-height issues in the Lakes!)

    Still loving it!

    You might be able to just make out the latest mod... the boot lip spoiler. Undecided about colour-coding it just yet. Think it looks okay in standard black at the moment...

    Kinda... We went up to Gretna Green for Rach's friend's wedding and I ended up doing a last-minute chauffeur job for the bridesmaids... as well as being the last-minute official photographer, cake decorator & wedding planner! Nightmare day that I wasn't really prepared for, but was excellent in the end!

    Car performed faultlessly. :thumbsup:

    P.S. - that's not me in the uniform...! That was the wedding car driver of the Rolls Royce helping the girls into the back of my A4... nice guy.

    They're only 18's - BBS Calito's from a late A3.

    Unknown drop as it's on coilies... so you'd have to put it alongside a standard A4 to take readings...!

    Too low...? It's not low enough! lol

    To be fair though, I was struggling earlier this week with clearance on the front subframe mount covers while driving on some of the more 'interesting' roads in the Lakes. I suppose that's what they're there for! And, when am I ever going to do that again...? Probably never, so I'm not that bothered about it.

    i know what you mean, nearly every car i've owned has been so low i cant get over any humps and bumpy roads are just a no-go

    still yours may be a tad low for my my comfort

    At that ride height, you don't find speed bumps.

    They find you.

    I've got a passive speed-bump avoider-satnav system installed so that I tend to go the routes with no speed bumps!

    To be fair though, most speed bumps are fine... it's the 'steep & short' speed bumps that are a pain. Normal every-day speed retarders are okay.

    That is one gorgeous looking car mate!!! I would say don't colour code it, I thought of doing that with mine, but decided i prefer the silver/black contrast. :w00t:

    black spoiler looks good with the black bumper skirt being black. what spoiler is that mate? ie where from, i bought one an wasnt really happy with it so still not fitted, looks identical an looks awsum on yours so maybe need ta throw it on an stand back!
    ps be wary of ribbons! they may seem 'soft an silky' at first but at speed there like scouring pads! did it for a mate once an never again!

    I only travelled about half a mile with the ribbons on... so no worries there!

    New LCR front splitter added. Not happy with the way it fits round the side... some heat and a bit of light persuasion and it should be okay.

    Thanks for the positive comments guys!

    Nice Car,

    You should of been taking wedding photos, but instead you couldnt resist. You just had to use all your camera memory on the motor:ohmy:

    How was the journey, not too bouncy I hope.

    I see the flowers were intact judging by the pictures.

    Honestly, the ride is absolutely fine. I know some may think it must be awful with having it so low and running cheap coil-overs... but if you were to ride in it, you'd be very surprised by it's quality. I've had a lot of lowered cars, and this is probably the best ride of the lot! I'm getting on a bit now and if it had been too much I would have swapped them out for a set of fixed springs and dampers... :happy:
