Well warranted use of the word. I'm assuming he didn't take off at least?

Added 15mm spacers all around. I think I'll lower it first then see how it looks before going 20mm in the rear

Looking good there!

Just need that drop.

Mine has 15mm spacers all round too and recently dropped on Eibach Springs.

I've looked into going 20mm spacers at the rear. When on flat ground, it will be fine. when on a kerb or hump, the wheel will rub on the wheel arch if 20mm is used.

Happy to be proved wrong. If 20mm work, I'll soon change.

Ah good to know! Either way yes I definitely need to drop it first. Still debating between H&R or Eibach

I think H&R gives more of a drop compared to Eibach.

This is mine before and after, on fairly level ground.

I'm told the front will come down a little but will take some time.

Ceramic Coated the wheels today and fully detailed the car...

Alot of hype around Carbon Collective Platinum Wheels at the moment so thought I would try some of there products. Was tempted to go for the Gtechniq C5 wheel armour but thought would try CC out instead.
