lowered yes i agree it would look better but i fear for my tooth fillings with the british pot holes in the roads it already can be very harsh is i hit one. i did show them the piccie of the 75% black 25%silver and got a bit of a sharp intake of breath, like "ya can try it if ya want" so i just went with the easy option. they had a set of golf gti alloys in the same colour done the ones with like 5 horse shoes? offered them up to the car and they looked great in that colour and very alfa like. are VW copying alfa designs???
