Looking good Sammy B)

A wee bit too low for me on the front, the rear looks fine.

I know you want to lower the rear a bit further, what you like is what matters most. ;)

You'll have to watch kerbs and humps / bumps. :(

I'm getting mine lowered -35mm on Thursday on H&R springs. ;)

Looks awesome,i dont know if you remember but i was pm'ing you over on zsoc regarding these coilovers, finally took the plunge today and ordered them phoned up the company that deal directly with importing ap coilovers in from germany and managed to get them for £445 delivered, going to take about 3 weeks though as apparently they don't have any stocked so have to be shipped from germany. I bet you get lots of looks when you are out and about now, had any problems getting over speedbumps or anything?

A tad to low for me personally! I prefer the wheels to be in line with the arches, but that's just me. How are you finding the ride?

Have to say, i'm not a huge fan of that tbh. It really don't suit the car and not to mention it will ruin the comfort of the car. Each to their own... <_<

;) This is gorgeous mate, looks really really well and cant wait to get mine done on the kw's! Is there any chance you could get me a pic from side on at a bit more of a distance so you can see the front of the car and the back if you get me?
