i'm gonna do it to mine but not until i have swapped it for a black one (yes i'm actually selling my blue 147 because i want a black one)
also how much were the GTA style alloys if you don't mind me asking?
and does it being lowered make anything wear out quicker than the standard would?
If you want a black one, get metallic black, not just the plain black. I don't have metallic and the paint is really soft and the front is really chipped easily, especially in winter when there is a lot of grit on the road...
I got the GTA teledials for 300 EUR. They come from the previous owner of my 147GTA and they were not used at all, maybe driven for 2 weeks till he swapped them for 19". I think the price was good, but hey, I bought a complete car from him before
I think the wear of suspension would be similar to standard, maybe less, but not very much. I lowered it at 45k kms on the clock. Car has now 125k kms. And I needed lower wishbones at 75k, upper wishbones and ARB droplinks at 115k, rear transverse arms at 100k and that's all. I would say the components should last about 20-25 percent less but it depends on the roads you are driving on.
