    Default lowering is it worth it to me

    my last vectra c,i lowered it and put low profiles on my car,but every time i hit a little bump i use to hear it like a bang and very annoying,was that through the lowering or the tyres as trying to decide if i want to lower my car anymore?or do you think its fine looking as it is?

    looks fine to me, I think lowering it more would just give you a sore back

    Looks more than fine to my eyes! Lovin it in fact. I think that with our loosely disguised cobbled track's known as main roads, you need a little more room for movement in suspension if you drive any great distance, more than if you only go to the petrol station cruze venue and burger van in your Friday night dragster,,,,, as I did in the past

    If you've no plans to change your alloys i'd leave it... the ride height looks about right for them IMO

    Actually, I find when I go "a distance" its fine. It's the local road in my town that are a nightmare with patchwork, potholes & speed bumps, once I get onto a-roads and mway, the vectra is superb.
