Easily one of my favourite cars here :thumb:

Does it sit lower over the H&R's now, or was this purely for adjustability purposes.

Thank you  ;D

I'm not 100%, I took no measurements but the rear is certainly no lower than H&Rs, the springs might of even been a tad lower. The front is where there is more adjustment, it could go another 30mm plus I reckon but where it sits now is perfect I think, a tad nose down.

The main benefit has just been a less bouncy ride over spring & damper and more firm feel, a bit more planted/flat through corners.

    So a new 180 comp has been ordered to replace this.

    Podium blue, yellow brembos, satin grey stripes and upgraded sound system.

    Looking forward to putting a few mods on this  ;D

    20mm all round. Her wheels were et46 though so they were down to et26. They sat perfect, not sure you would want to go any more than 26 as they would start coming out the arches then.

    Wow 20 is pretty crazy. I was thinking of only going a subtle 5mm with my Comp alloys (not sure what the ET on them is)

    They are eibach bolt to the hub ones and then the alloy bolts to the spacer. Never had any issues with them in the 10k+ they have been on. But they were needed with the wheels being such a poor offset.

    Beautiful car Benn and tastefully modified.

    White wheels are Blessing (as they look awesome with the White stripes) and a Curse (as they are a pain in the donkeys behind to keep clean or mine are at least PMSL)



    Are the above HF Integrale wheels and are they a straight fit?

    They look gorgeous IMHO!
