    Evening all

    Just want to say a huge thanks to @Critch for doing my service and lowering springs yesterday morning

    Dropped the car off with him around 10.30am and I went into town with the mrs and my little girl. I think they were both expecting to be walking around shops all day while the car was in....

    12.30pm got a call from Critch to say the car was all done....obviously the bored 4 year old was made up haha

    Went back to get the car and @cont1204 and @megsdad were there.....obviously I know cont1204 pretty well but was good to meet Steve (megsdad)

    They were hanging on for @woodpeck to come and have a couple of bits checked over

    Under normal circumstances I would have hung around all day but all you guys with kids know what its like! lol

    Anyway, here's a couple of pics of how she's sitting

    I'm made up with it tbh and looks fantastic sitting a little lower at the front

    I would highly recommend @Critch for anyone that needs stuff doing or checking over

    I know where I'll be going for the work I can't do myself in the future

    Cheers again

    Yes, sorry I missed you @simmo3187 , I had my crank sensor replaced yesterday by Critch BUT unfortunately the car "broke down / cutout" twice on the way, due to the faulty sensor and I arrived later than expected.

    Your car is looking great fella, but hope you are prepared for all the front skirt "nerves" that will come whenever you even just see a pothole or speedbump, let alone go over one

    haha @woodpeck I did see you coming into Birkenhead as I was joining the m53 on the way back

    Don't worry about the front skirt 'nerves' mate as my last vec was an xp and was lowered and my last car was a fabia vrs dropped about 60-70mm on coilovers

    I've already tried a few bumps and all good so far
