Venom motorsport supply the camber shims for my 1.0E lupo for 17 quid so might just buy them and see what happens really and use the guide above in the same kinda way to keep me right really :)

Hopefully more people will reply with more information for us mate!!! fingers crossed

Many thanks darren

I am running on some 13x7J Starmags 165/55 13r

Its lowered now those are old pictures about 100mm on the front and 80ish on the back :)
Need to camber the back a wee bit so i can lower it more at the back to stop the wheel bending my back quarter panel :wacko: because i had to put spacers on so i could get the centre caps in which made them poke out more :blush:
