    How old is your car, Emily? I've 2011, 2014, and 2016 Pricing and Specification Guide's; PM me with your email address if you'd like a copy of either. ASN won't allow me to send direct, ask Sandra...

    Ok, a 4-door from the 2014 Guide but looks like your wheels (S-line on 17" wheels): see ride height front and rear:

    Not sure if this will be the case but something to be aware of when lowering if you have auto-dipping headlights (No dial for dipped level and they move up and down when you first turn them on)

    I've seen cars with these headlights throw a fit when the car lowered as they seem to loose some sort of reference point and spend all day going up and down. If this is the case for you, they'll need to be reset somewhere and that something you may need to take into your budget?

    Just a warning in case you run into it further down the line.

    Mine is OK, and with auto-lights and everything else. Made sure to 'lower' front and rear the same. Of greater concern was with the Milltek exhaust; fortunately that's supplied with a spacer plate to lower the headlamp-levelling module to accommodate the larger exhaust pipe; phew...

    Thanks for the info . I dont have auto dipping headlights so that's one thing less to worry about . Hopefully going to purchase springs next week. Still a bit undecided which ones to go for.

    H&R Give the best drop of 35mm. Eibach never drop the full advertised amount.

    Here is mine on H&R springs:

    I finally decided H&R 35mm. I am so happy with how it looks now. Top pic before bottom pic after.
