    Standard sri springs will put it down 20mm just go with some 30mm apex, mine was on standard sri springs and i changed em for 30mm apex so it only lowered mine another 10mm but handling is way better and sits alot nicer even wi 10mm difference. How much did they set you back? Was they brand new?

There as cheap though to get good branded lower 1"s its the fitting that costs same as springs! £90 springs £100 fitting and that was done cheaply 1 garage wanted £285 jus to fit em! I just rung around though, ull get a cheap garage. Im looking at some of these actually but just the plain silver ones, was they an option? Did u not fancy em?

    yeah mate they do the silver ones for about £25 cheaper. i realy like those aswel and was about to buy them till last minute,but i just thought they looked too similar to my old alloy wheels on my old car so fancyed a change plus the gun metal looks qwite good with the colure of my car. oh and the shiny silver looks very good when spinning by the way haha
