    Default lowering advice please

    She's nearly finished ( for the moment ) but needs lowering and roof spoiler but how much lower do i go. she is standard at the moment but do i go down 30, 35 or 40, I'm thinking 30 as this is a compromise between comfort, speed bumps, kerbs and looks. Opinions please.

    Also depends on what springs you get, i have just got 45mm pi springs fitted and i think the ride comfort is still very nice! It all depends where you want the arch to sit on the tyres, measure it up, then get the correct springs.
    I would say go 45mm but im biased
