    Talking Blimey!!!

    Had my springs fitted on Saturday (30-35mm drop)
    Pics to follow.....what a difference, you can get the power down with so much more confidence, and it feels better under braking! - looks great too

    Just though i'd share that with you all....sorry!

    Apex springs in the end....they give a very good combination of ride quality, but remain firm also.

    Had the car fully laser aligned today!

    I love it....the way you can accelerate & point the car & it goes where it should!

    It seems better/more stable under braking too....is that right or am i imagining it?

    No your not imagining it m8,mines lowered the same as yours and it sticks to the road like glue.
    Only thing with mine though,with the wheels i have on,it cant be laser aligned,the equipment they use cant be attached acuratly to the wheel,which is a bummer...spose i'll have to buy a set of steelies just to do the job.

    Thats weird that the machines can't be attached to the wheels!! (Are those Vauxhall Alloys in the pic?)
    If you can, get the car aligned ASAP, as it really a diffrence not only to the handling characteristics, but also keeps your tyres from scrubbing!!!
