Alfa 147 Newbie

Hi there guys and girls

Thought I'd come and introduce myself. Just bought myself a 2003 53 reg 147 2.0 T-Spark and I'm very happy with it so far (touch wood). Had a couple of Alfas in the family before, a GTV and GT but never owned one myself so had to cure the itch!

Just a few questions really. What are the most common modifications you guys do? Not looking to spend silly money, just a few things to make it look a little smarter really. The first thing I want to do is sort out the ride height as at the moment it looks like a tractor! It's on the 17 inch supersport alloys but the gap between the tyre and arches is far too big for my liking. Any pics of a lowered 147 would be much appreciated. Been looking into exhausts too, the most popular seems to be the ragazzon system from what I've seen. They sound awesome but a tad on the loud side. Want to get something that sounds nice and raspy but not too loud. Any reccomendations welcome
