It looks fantastic mate, really does.

Did you go for coil overs to lower it?

Im gonna be the one person who thinks this does'nt look quite right so?
The wheels just dont look like they're sitting right in the arches, needs to be lowered another small bit, does'nt look as though its been lowered a lot so far?

H&R, springs and spacers. Need to get camber arms. Standard suspension allowed just 2.4 in the rear.

I think it looks just right regarding height, that may be the old fart in me thinking about ride comfort however! Day to day use with anything lower would get a bit tiresome I think.
I agree though for the proper Vaghead stanced thing I could go a bit lower.
