    update !!!!!!! please
  8. Recommended height to lower

    depends on your driving style aswell as my arosa at 135mm lower scrapes like mad (expected) but when i had it at 100mm i could avoid nearly everything but my friend has scraped his lupo when it was at 60mm even at 135 i can get over wide speed bumps just not the thin little fookers
  9. Rear Bump Stops - Coilovers

    iv had to cut mine down, new ones if you have it low will make it bounce like mad my fronts are about as thick as an iphone 5 and mine still bounces when going round a corner if im going fast my rears are cut flush with the metal surround IMO not worth replacing or ugrading them mate
  10. Arosa picture thread.

    not posted one of mine for a while, this is her at her lowest to date :') she is a 2001 mk2 arosa 1.4 16v 100bhp sport current wheels are alluline twist's/cups/turbines (loads of names) they are 15x7 et38 running 20mm spacers and compressed fk springs on the rear running helpers out not threads left at front on TA Technix coillovers (next year i have a set of citroen c2 fk front springs comperssed to go in 3cm shorter than TA's) currently have a 2" notch and 20mm engine raised on engine side (plan on doing 30 or 40mm raise to each side over christmas) she had a reinforced subframe but a trip to gti fest got rid of the extra 5mm :/ (note to self, cats eyes are bigger than ground clearance) any questions just ask me all photo's from Stephen Barker at Images:SB this lad is awesome with a camera ^ ^ ^ ^ and a genuine nice guy
  11. out with the old and in with the new :)

    yehh so a week after gti fest was on my way to pick up some parts for a job i was doing when i had a few hard hits to the under side and about 3 miles down the road i noticed the blue smoke so i pulled over and this happened in 1min while i went to pick up parts :/ the next day was fun doing my sump in the rain on the road :')
  12. out with the old and in with the new :)

    havent updated this for ever so il pop some pics in for you all to see how she ended up on the way back from winter gti fest when she was at her lowest (cost me a subframe for that trip as i hit a few cats eyes on the A1 )
