    They look great. Been debating about changing my Superleggra's for something else. Was thinking of a switch down to 16s to get a bit more comfort back but I've just put on a Bilstein B12 kit and that seems to have helped

    Nice one WeeC, ive thought about 16's before but wouldn't be practical for me as i would need to lower my car which would mean i couldnt park the car as i would be too low:cry:

    Bilstein....nice, what did u have before?

    Thanks mate, i have a box with lsd in to fit & shell is getting re-sprayed so i thought its only right to remove the engine so bay can get a lick of paint too.

    Im also looking to change oil pump & pick up pipe, timing belt etc
