Just got my 147!!!!

Picked up my new 147 yesterday and love it! 54 plate 1.6 TS.

Would ideally like to make it look a little sportier with a rear spoiler and maybe some lowering springs.

Anyone have any thoughts on these ......... ModWorld

What do 40mm drop springs do to the ride quality???

Strongly advise changing the shocks at the same time if you are worried about the ride.

The springs will just make the ride a bit harder, but you do get used to it! im saving for some lowering springs and shocks, - this wont change the ride much at all!

Congrats. Listen to want have been said, changing springs will be better to change dumpers too.
