    Meaner, lower, stiffer and blacker than before :cool:

    So, questions:

    Is 60mm low enough? I need to let the springs "settle" but I think I can get aways with cutting off another coil perhaps.

    Will 13" RS 4 spokes fit over my front brakes (and indeed, my rear drums)

    Is mirror tint fading to black on the rear side windows gay?

    :cool:

    Real men dont need springs, we slam it to the floor then wheel it round on a flat bed. So yes its far far to high

    Never say die!

    It still doesn't run very well (I think the air temperature sensor has had it) and it has got a cunningly disguised split in the CV boot which I'm hoping to sneak through the MOT.

    Oh and only the main beam works :/ Not entirely sure why.

    Feels like a blancmange after the 205 though!

    Really need to find out if I can squeeze 13's on it, I want black RS 4 spokes with polished rims.

    Theres a BMW that knocks around near me with the mirror to black tints and it looks really, really, really bad. (emphasis on the reallies ;) )

    Refreshingly legal tyres on it, too.

    Still, slicks arent too bad when thrashing it in the dry ;)

    Wow it isnt as low as i expected, let it settle then see if it drops at all. If not then you may have to lower slightly more. ;)

    Looks scared of the road, dude.

    RS4s will fit over the drums...dunno about the discs through...

    How about some Orion pepperpots...Then drop it another 2"...tucked up inside the arches, sarf larndarn style.

    I think the Orion pepperpots alloys were made by wolfrace ?... I think they'd look good on a mondeo... :)
