Hell yeah, 50mm on the front 30mm on the back, don't get the full drop as the VTS is lower as standard.

Got some tasty Eibach sportline springs on there.

Also got:
new brake discs and pads all round (Ferodo Premier)
new droplinks
new track rod ends

Feels so much better as the front end did start to feel a little loose.

Eibach = FTW.

I bet it feels much more sporty. You'll have to take me out in it at the next meet. :D

I do need to get the summer wheels back on, with moving house its not been the top of the list.

Adam I think you modify cars at around x1000 the speed of me :lolz: I see you you finally understand car perfection!.

The suspension what a strange one to mess with as the standard stuff really is spot on, the more I looked at it the more eibach made sense, yes they cost a lot for 'just springs' but they really do no what they are doing and my current setup really is one of the best you can get.

I will have a better play with the summer wheels are back on.

Bingo.

I spoke to a few specialists about it all. Unless you're bothered about looks, 95% of the time you will lessen the performance of your vehicle by not using OEM approved products, unless you start looking at realistically priced suspension units (£1500+vat are the rock bottom end) and have them set-up professionally. Eibach's and new shocks are the best bang per buck if you want to spend less than a grand.

Put the other wheels back on, its amazing how different it feels without the big tyre sidewalls flexing..

Had a bit more fun with it now, the new parts certainly did the trick the front end feels solid again!

What a pile of shit.

:lol: I'm joking! Looks better with the standard wheels and lowered. The one thing that I'm not too sure if I like/dislike about them is the front window not being in line with the rear. I look at one everyday pretty much and its the one thing that you focus on, on the whole car from the side.

I must admit its certainly different in design, I must say the windows don't bother me as they fit the lines of the car they just don't fit the lines of each other, but with that where is the rule saying they have to line up.

By all means I can see it can be a bit of a Marmite car, but I like it.

I will say they look really odd without the spoiler, pretty much every model has one but when I see one without it looks wrong.

Looks well with proper wheels. I find these suite most multiple spoke alloys, have you been tempted to change?

They look well in vts form, thus making lesser models look rubbish, same story with saxo and 106.
