Looking good. Im changing my alloys from 15" to 16" then going to lower mine :) same where I stay except most of the bumps are massive ;( lol. Did you fit springs or coilovers?
Focuschick

does look better, noticed you will be able go around a corner that little faster....... i made the mistake wit hour escort, once i finished that, it was like a little go cart. you couldnt hit the thinist bump without exhaust grinding

Clare, how long since you have changed the springs? if its recent then it may get a bit lower as they need time to settle, plus if your going to increase the wheel size then it will look much better.
Focuschick
I just changed them this weekend, so hopefully they will settle a little bit lower, thanks for the replies :)

Did you change the colour too, or just clean it lol
artscot79
Dont do what i did get in a car park with kerbs and park normally crushing the bumper in the process as it hits the kerb with a whack
Focuschick
Lol no didnt change the colour and hasn't been cleaned for about two weeks lol

Did you change them yourself or get it done at a garage? If at a garage, if you don't mind me asking, how much was it?

Getting far too many ideas from this forum!

Cool, fancy bumping this thread in a month or two saying how they are and if there's further height difference.

Apart from ZS parts on mine, next on the list is suspension and wheels.
