    Talking Lowered @ 888

    Well today i had me the eagerly awaited road trip to 888 for my car to be lowered.The trip down the 120 or so miles from sheffield had to be one of the moost stressfull journeys i`ve had in a long while.We set off @ 6am in the pi55ing rain on to the M1 to be met by mostly nutcases that seemed to be on a mission to have an accident on a stretch of motorway where there is one almost on a daily basis.Then the cruise control decided it was n`t going to play ball and kept switching it`s self off after sometimes needing three attempts to switch it on.Then realised the sat nav was taking me on a 140 mile route whilst telling me about non existant stationary traffic to avoid.So i finally arrive there @ 8:30 when they take it in and make a start.THEN after taking off the old springs i notice Neil looking at the new ones appearing to be a little confused.I did n`t think too much of it so i went for a look at the touring cars , 2 mins later he shouts me back through to tell me that they ve been sent 4 front springsat this point i start to worry about havin to go home without them we he says BUT we can put you another set on but they ll be slightly lower and as long as they do n`t bottom out on the road test they ll be ok.Long story short and all that , on they went and all was good after road test.Really pleased with handling and the way it sits so alls well that ends well.Here s some pics...

    Thanks Neal
