cheers for that chap, thats perfect. I think, as of the look im going for they probably won't look right set at that height, unless I got coilovers... which I can't be fussed with, so probably leave it I think now.. Appreciate the pics though mate.

What wheels you gonna put on yours then?

got a couple in mind, not sure on the colour, what you rekon?

anthracite

Black

there the closest to 225 wheels i can find, found some that were identical by team dynamics, gto, but theyve stopped doing them, and ideally ide like to put 19's on, but im doing like 500 miles a week so its not a good idea really.

the coilovers we can get for ours only go to -70mm to which aint that low really, its only another 25mm, and for like £750, alot of people do say that my car looks low tho, i think the arches are just massive, but the cill is really low, i cant go over certain speed bumps and down alley ways because the cills bang, which means the idea of ever putting skirts on is out the window, lucky i have never wanted them,

They look good mate. Speak to Jimbo over on MS, he had some 17" Cup looky-likes which looked good.

You put the 225 front end on, or is that chopped?! :D
