    Vehicle : Vectra 1.8 SRi

    Hi Henry,
    The lowering springs will make the car look loads better. I had an LS lowered 40/45 on PI springs on SRi prefacelift alloys and the wheels looked great on it in my opinion. It's a shame that Vauxhall didn't do 19" versions of them instead of snowflakes!

    Is this where you tell me that you're saving up for 19" snowflakes?

    Im just about to hit Buy it now on a set of LO 45mm springs!! No im not a fan of the snow flakes to be honest, think due to the fact of seeing them quite alot!

    The alloys im saving up for are abit different, got a lot of lip should we say!

    As Ian said its the little things that help most. Things like CC'd repeaters etc cost next to nothing but make a big difference IMHO

    Looking much better my friend,.. however I think the tyres on the wheels are too small,.. they should be 215/50/17 - I suspect they are a lower wall depth.

    225/45/17 is also a legitimate (and Vauxhall approved) size for tyres on the 17" wheels
