It is a phase 1; so what Pininfarina badges ?
Not a fan of some of the alloy choices but fair enough, think the car has been kept respectable looking!! He clearly looks after it.
Would love for top gear to race a selection of lowered cars against standard versions, in a fair way (same condition and engines etc) to see how much slower a lowered car would go ;-)
I like ugly wheels, I like them more when they are rare. I love my GTV to pieces and trust me it is determined to fall into exactly that.. pieces
The worst thing on car forums is people forgetting we are all car guys.
I am 100% aware of the detrimental effects of lowering the car this much.
If I wanted it to handle better then I would have made it handle better.
90% of the time spent in my car involves being stuck in traffic;
leering at girls and looking at the reflection of my GTV in shop windows.
Even though it is sat still it looks like it is going a 100mph because it has huge road presence, it's a rolling piece of automotive art and for me it's sole function is for posing.
If I want a B-road blast which I sometimes do
, 30 mins swapping wheels and adjusting the suspension back up and off I go.
I'll keep this thread updated with progress for those that are interested and partially to upset those that aren't / don't understand.
