    Snowfoam
    Rinse
    Wash with 2BM Maxi Suds II and washmitts
    Rinse
    Dry using Microfibre Drying Towel
    Glazed with Poorboys Black Hole
    Followed by Poorboys EX-P Sealant
    and then waxed with Dodo Juice Purple Haze
    Wheels Waxed with CG Wheel Guard
    Tyres and trim treated with Sonus Tyre and Bumper Gel
    Windows cleaned

    I think this sort of pic should carry a warning 'Lots of Shiny Stuff' ................ .....

    A bit of both really, i've often thought it looked a little high at the front but the angle does make it look a lot worse than it is!!

    Funnily enough i am just deciding what springs to go for and will be buying some next week hopefully

    Cool! Have a word with the boys at LMF.They'll get you springs with the correct curb weight first time,think its the 1040's for the front,can't recommend Eibachs enough,was very nervous about having to hard a ride,done that been there,and as i want a car for comfort miles these days,i was so relieved when the springs settled to what they are now.I simply can't understand why VX didn't fit somet similar as standard,because quite simply all i'd been driving was a Vectra shaped shell,with a boat underneath until i fitted these springs,then the rest of the car sprang to life like the resurrection!
    Enormous difference for a comparatively small lay out.
