I have et40 bud, tyres are 225/40! Fronts are fine rears poke but need camber adjusting. Hope this helps
Dolphin grey bud, nope no plans to upgrade headlights, all the bulbs are updated and suit me fine! I do like the look of the DRL when they're on and working but not when there switched off and parked, they all look so aftermarket personally. So stock it is.
I wanted FK's but at the time no one had any in the uk and Germany had non ready so ended up with JOMs and I must say I'm pleased with how they ride, I do how ever think I have a squeaky shock so will look into that and take advantage of the 2 year warrantee!
I don't really push it mate, tdi and its a big ol car to be fair, and the fact I'm on stretch tires too. Just all for looks. If you want a more performance based one I'd save up and spend abit more, these are fine for a low end coilovers but for trackdays ect I'd spend a bit more?
Obviously they all pass some kind of E.U standard but id rather pay a little more for piece of mind if makes sense?
thats the answer I was looking for mate, cheers for your honesty, iam aiming mainly round performance, although the look would be nice it's not priority.
I can say even though there a low end kit in price there not half bad even for having abit of a play in the bends.
Im currently a total of 1 inch between the tarmac and the subframe on the fronts with the rears set a little higher like whooper for that mean *** stance and ive done some 120+ cornering between lincoln and skegness with no problems and there 3-4 year old now . paired with Goodyear Eagle F1 ASY2's the set up is phenomenal on grip and corners so nice.

Nice! So they can handle being pushed then. I live around a lot of speed bumps, which are a pain in the ****, so the quick option (if there is one) to jack it up abit when using it round town would be great, although I plan on it only coming out once a week by next summer. Nice car! Are they 911 turbo wheels?
I don't know abit jacking it up and lowering it all the time. I avoid speed bumps no matter what even those tiny thin ones (they do most damage) I got stuck last month dropping family off at East Midlands airport beached myself on some horrific speed bumps the was high like 2x the hight of a normal bump? Was weird. I'd just set it at something that's practical it takes time . Gah if I had a £ for every person that's said that I'd be rich there merc alloys very rare from what I can gather I did pay over 1300 for them of a merc engineer
