    Default 19" wheels and suspension

    Does anyone have any pictures of a pre facelift on 19" wheels with standard Sri suspension and also with Eibach -30mm springs fitted.

    Mine is on -45mm front and -40mm rear at moment and trying to see best way to go.

    Thanks

    This is just a bit to low for the speed bumps and pot holes where I live :-(

    Sorry to hijack, but your front bumper seems to have the same problem as mine in being slightly darker than the car. Or is it just the light?

    No respray on that car I know for sure. Most Vecs suffer from it, the facelifts are really bad for it. There's a massive thread running somewhere.

    Bit the bullet and ordered some Eibach's today from LMF, should be with me next week for fitting a week on Monday. Then the PI's will be up for sale.

    Hopefully car will be sitting a bit higher and bit more speed hump / pot hole friendly :-)
