    Yeah I've only had it about 2 months or so, haven't done anything drastic to it.
    I didnt think it looked that high really, I assume it's on standard suspension, I had a golf gti a couple of years ago and the stock height on that was a bit lower than this.

    Would lowering springs be enough? Or would it have to be coilovers?

    I have only springs mate, coilovers give you a solid ride, and Edinburgh roads are bad so I wouldn't have them, coilovers are ment for the track really, so if you want you car to bang about on the road the coilovers are for you lol I have spring and would never go back down the coilovers road unles I had a show car and it never had to be drivin or track car.

    Good point, roads where I live (Derbyshire) are either full of potholes or speed bumps.

    Fitted a cglock today mainly for castle Combe next week but will probably just keep it on as long as the mrs can cope with it.

    Lol, I think it's probably a reflection of the rear lights of the car parked in front of it!

    Car looks good in that colour though, you did a good job of that.

    I thought blue and red were illegal? I've known people who have been stopped by the police for blue bulbs.
    Shame really.

    Gave the engine bay a little clean. Nothing compared to some and I'm not one for bling but quite satisfying.

    Also used a sponge, some water and autoglym interior shampoo on the drivers seat. Surprising how much dirtier the water was after.
