Set about fitting the rear springs and shocks on friday night,easy enough job..lowered the rear adjusters as low as they go after reading up on here that the rears dont go as low as the front. Im happy with the drop at the back. (also fitted my Renault sport rear badge ;) )

This morning i set about doing the fronts..Strut top nuts are a pain in the a*s!! eventually got there in the end though..the front is to low at the moment though, it will be getting adjusted up a bit more tomorrow so its matching the rear.

Next up is to get it booked into a garage to get the camber and tracking done before i get the new toyos fitted.

Some photos after i got them fitted and gave the car a clean and a wax.

cheers mate :). The ride isnt to bad,not as bad as i thought it would be anyway..ive not really driven it hard at all to know how the handling has been affected though. Need the camber and tracking done before i see how the handling has been affected.

thats ok it really is nice!! sits perfect imo as you haven't got the tracking/camber done but how would you compare it to the comign from the original dampers/springs?

car was fitted with the cup packs and going from that to these its a little bit more bumpy, i wouldnt say the suspension is hard or to soft but its nothing to bad..i think its more than livable for a daily basis

Next few plans.
Camber/tracking
Wheels re-done
Tyres fitted
Few wee dents removed
Stone chip paint repair
Then some carbon fiber goodies (i hope :) ) and a 5k oil/filter change at some point in the next month.
Been eyeing up Rstuners aswell but thatl have to wait since ive just spent over £600 on coilovers and tyres :(

Shame you never got some better coilovers though.

Nothing wrong with cheap coilovers, I've had a set of £189 Jamex coilovers fitted to my girlfriends A3 for three years. The ride is perfect, and she did an 8:58BTG on road tyres with them.

Love the look of that, looks really good :) I see loads of Clio's with these half sized plates, how legal are they?

Lovely looking motor right there.

Jardo I've got a 3/4 size front plate, it's been fitted for 2 month's and ive driven past numerous officers and haven't been stopped. I think if you drive like a hoon and attract unwanted attention to your self then you might have issues. This is imo obviously.

Thanks for the comments.

I've not had any trouble with the 3/4 plates that are on it.. I've seen police officers look at them but nothings been said ( might just be admiring the colour ;) lol)

Il get better photos with my proper camera once I clean it again :)

Looks lovely that.

I've got Vmaxx myself and they are awful. The fronts aren't too bad but the rears are death. If you got them for show lowz then I think they are great value for the money IMO.
