    Wink Alloys or Lowering

    Hi all,

    I have about £500 a month to spend on my car Vec-C, and i am wondering what to go for first.

    Alloys or Lowering.

    I think the Alloys would set it off nice, but cant quite decide. To lower 30mm will cost 500, Alloys are lookin like £1500 I want the Inovit 19" they are nice.

    Any Opinions

    lower and then wait till after xmas for the alloys.... that way you will not ruin the alloys with the salt and grit from the road

    Agreed... Get the lowering kit first.

    It'll make the car handle better & look better... great modification to do.

    In my view it depends what is more important to you. If your more worried about looks then go for the wheels, but if handling and performance is your thing, then go for the suspension.

    I'm more into making the car handle better to be honest
