Looks great @HulkRS3. How do you find the comfort compares to standard now you've lowered it?
I don't have the adaptive dampers and if anything, as silly as it sounds, it feels slightly better? It was never terrible before but I feel like over some of our terribly maintained roads in Scotland that it could feel quite crashy on the 19s but if anything it feels a little more taught now. Looks great too.

That sound really good. I'm torn between the Pro and Sportline kit because I'm not sure whether the Sportline is a little too low. I take it you don't think that's a problem and that it wouldn't benefit from being a few mm's higher?

I think the sportline kit makes the car sit perfectly and I'm not a big fan of lowered cars. It's also renowned for it's ability to retain ride quality while having the aesthetic and mechanic difference of a decent spring.

It sounds like a win-win situation for a very reasonable amount of money. Thanks for the information :thumbs up:

Just for you TX....
And more Turbo blue with Sonax Perfect Finish.

All the doors / rear / wings / ABC pillars done with 3” pad, just find it easier.

Only use for a 5.5” pad on this car is the middle 3 sections of bonnet and the roof.

Gonna have to use 2” for parts of the lower rear bumper and around the front air intakes.

I managed to do the intake surround and gloss black grill with the mini DA.

I’ve a feeling I’ll need to get the Shinemate rotary nano out tomorrow for the lower side skirts so can do the cill interiors while I’m at it.

Gloss front came up nice.

Seems to be less orange peel on some panels than others.

Looks great though, I need to do the same to mine after being lazy and taking to the local car wash place.

More ‘retirement’ work today.

Just side skirts / door shuts / gloss black door pillars & spoiler pieces to do ready for the coating application tomorrow.

Orange peel effect is on all mass produced cars ....most common on vertical panels darker the paint the more noticeable

Yup unavoidable on cars these days, and the obligatory clear coat ‘line ’ on the vertical panel edges which is a phenomenon of spraying a panel.
