    You'll be like something out of Scooby Doo.

    "What was that Freddie?"
    "I don't know Scoob, let's check it out"
    "Where'd it go?"

    this is how the 25mm springs look,more what you'd expect the S4 would be as standard

    Walking was great. NZ is jaw droppingly beautiful. Gave up on my wifes' Ipad. Back home now with a laptop and a faster router. Our live telecast is a kickoff at 0300 Sunday. I start work at 0700. Mmmmm... Three outcomes. Close either way, and an absolute cracker. Or the ABs will walk away with it. They really are that good. Treated like demi gods there. Thats how I see it. Tomorrow, I get to get back in my beasty, YEAH. God, try driving a Nissan Tiida. I rang this little things neck. It certainly wouldn't have got to the mileage it had on it if I had been driving it for long. Nearly killed it. That said we saw a near, mighty crash with three young lads doing 180 degree spin off a highway in a howling storm doing 110 km/hr between two oncoming cars coming to rest in 4 ft deep grass. No one hurt some serious puckering on their part though. 1 car between us. Chop, I used Eibach set up on my previous. Conservative set ups but struck me as high quality all round. ( PS, sorry about the quarter final,I recon that was rough. Craig Joubert normally goes against us. I dread him doing the final)

    yeh the ABs just have a presance about them i think, good luck though, i'm at work :-(

    sounds like a lucky escape for them young lads bet they **** it, i'm keen to go as low as i can i really love the air look but couldnt justify the money for it and even coilovers are just a bit to much so i'll stick to springs and see how low i can go

    I've no doubt it'll look much better from a full frontal view, that pic probably doesn't do it justice, look forward to seeing the finished product.

    Thanks gadgys I'm day shift next two days :-( but I'll get it tidyed up and get some decent photos up on Thursday I'm keen to see how it looks with mirrors

    Its deff do able if your a we bit handy with the tools, nothing complicated just screws and clips but It's quite fiddly the first time you look at it and requires a bit of force to separate them, there are some good guides kicking about though

    ( Iv broken a couple of clips but I'm not the most patient nor do I have the lightest touch )

    I'll need to be extra careful re fitting so I don't chip my new paint :-0

    I'd say give it a try what's the worst that could happen :)

    How did you get on with operation black out on the roof bars and the window trims, did you take them off, if so was it a major job to get roof bars and trims on and off without damaging them? Local dealer told me virtually impossible to get window and window/gutter rail trims off without damaging. apparently to get lower window trims on and off it is a door strip out job! I understand roof rails are a headlining out job?
