Just Playing around, also lowered <Pic Heavy>

Got my car lowered yesterday. Dropped by 45mm.
Had a little play around with my camera.
Enjoy.

I'm in Cornwall at the minute and the roads are really bad, i wouldn't want to run low profile. Hence the reason why i've only dropped it by 45mm instead of making it scrape.

Very nice mate, I'd love to lower mine but I've found the front to be low enough as it is, when I put mine up on the curb (a normal curb) and I have about 1cm between the undershield and the concrete xD

45mm, that's a lot. what springs did you use?
I dropped mine with 25mm eibachs and it scrapes especially the mud flaps, removed them today and put some rally style ones on.

Looks good though painting the calipers will give the illusion of more filled arches.
Same wheels as mine, I think they are the best of the standard alloys, accept the type R ones of course

Its running on the Eibach pro street s coilover kit.
Bought them last week on here.
You sure you did 25mm? This kit does 20mm-70mm so i'd hate to think what grooves i'd leave if i wound it all way down.

Ok coliovers. nice

70 mm I couldn't get around the streets of Salford that low, its speed bump city. Something to do with all the car crime there

I don't think there are many places you'll be able to go on 70mm. Too many speed bumps popping up everywhere.

Nice pics dude.
Where abouts in Cornwall are you?
Roads here are absolutely terrible, although there is a couple of awesome roads that have just been re-surfaced and are tasty to drive on!

Well first my mum and dad bought a hotel so worked lived and worked there. Got under each others feet and had a bust up so that ended that lol. Then got a trainee manager position at The Port William Inn down Trebarwith Strand. Then a manager of a holiday park offered me a sales position selling holiday lodges/caravans etc which is awesome, now promoted to sales exec and loving it.
I guess i've been kinda lucky!!! You'll be alright finding a bar/cafe/pub job in the summer haha!! But thats about it, winter is s h i z if you dont have a full time position somewhere!
