    That is Low.
    Watch the - camber as it will wear your tyres out in no time

    Fully reversible too....

    Have to admit angle of drive exaggerates it a little (but that was the idea of the post....) so to level with you, on the level, as it were: IMG_0612.

    I actually really like the ride hight on that pic.

    making me think I may need to pull the back wheels out a touch when I lower mine and get the 18s on.. Will have to see how it goes, the 18s are 8 inches wide so hopefully they will fill the arches ok

    I always like the car when I have the kids and all the holiday gear in, only problem is its made me want it lower all the time so have bought the springs and camber arms to do the job now.

    Have to agree @chris2982 , wheels will need spacing now too.

    Thanks @FoReV R , that's more money you've just cost me :-/ lol
