    OK so this month i'm gonna get either wheels or coilovers, my funds wont stretch far enough to get both so i'll have to wait till next month..But what should I go for first? If I go for wheels it means i'll be driving round like a tractor for a month :huh:

    Yeh i think thats the best bet, i'll be going from 16s to 18s so I might have to adjust the coilovers if I get them on first anyway.
    Think i'll go for bbs LM reps... if I come across a decent set that is

    Wheels and her springs for me. Wheels will make you happy and at least you can drop it too. Unless you got an S3 or drive hard I wouldn't put the coilovers first, especially if you only got 16's on :ninja:. Wheels and springs and save for coilies.

    I agree, coilovers first.

    Then, wheels, and adjust the coilovers further down! :D

    Always go coil-overs first. Solely because it will help you get ideas on your wheels. You can see exactly how your car can sit and what you can make work.
