Well it isn't strictly new. But it is to me.

I've just fitted a set of 18's and I realise that I haven't enough pics, but its a 147 2.0 Lusso.

It also has a CSC backbox and soon to be a ragazzon straight through centre section.

Lovely little car.

I've got a set of Eibach Springs and Koni FSD's that I will be fitting over the next 3 weeks.

Watch this space. :)

I take it the garage sorted out you another tyre? Thought you was going to wait and get them balanced? They are looking good and will look even better when you get the Eibach springs on. How much are you lowering it by? Koni FSD's - these are the one you said to fit to my GTA?

Dropping by 30mm thanks to the Eibach springs.

The Koni's don't affect the ride height. :)

The garage next door had a set of 1/4 worn michelin Pilot Sports. In my size! :cool:

£120 balanced. :cool: I fitted them myself with their airgun and jacks ;)

I kept the crappy Ventus tyres on the rear wheels :)

looks good on the 18's. i thought mine was tight on 17's with 225/45/17s. saw the pics for the rolling road day did it make much difference after the remap? I was very tempted to try and trade my 147 for your GTA when you had it up but only decieded for sure i really wanted one after you sold it. Russe's GTA is quite tempting but a bit high on the miles and a bloody log way from Cardiff:lol:

here are a couple of pics of my 147.
would like FSD's and Eibach's on mine but i wont get it back when i find the GTA with my name on it :)

Yeah, those coilovers may as well just be solid metal bars, there is no give whatsoever.. Lovely on smooth roundabouts but a pain on anything else.

Look forward to seeing some more pics once its lowered. Do you have a date for fitment yet?
