Looks cool, i like the wheels, tints, rear lights etc, and the drop makes all the difference. I reckon you should now colour code the rubstrips - dont underestimate how much of an improvement this will make, believe me i've been there with my 1.6. [Y]


ps. the wheels are nice but the black is slightly ott - have you thought about getting them refurbed in a slightly lighter colour - ie dark grey like santa monicas? would look more subtle. [Y]

tints? is not tinted.. yet. [:)]


As for the wheels, I like them as they are and it took me quite a while to find them in that finish to be honest. But each to their own [:)]


and colour coding is on the list for the summer

 looking good mate. drop it a bit more i rekons.


i must say, i know the golf naturally sits high but i dont think ive ever seen one sitting that high in your before pics[:DD] big improvement with the drop either way. im diggin the Nouvarili's too (spelling) they suit the car. id get an anni/rieger/4 mo front valance now, and maybe some skirts.


how much was the JOM kit out of interest?

The JOM kit was £249, not alot and probably not the best but this is the first set of coilies ive owned and I wasnt going to blow big bucks if I didnt like the ride.. but i love it! Throw it round corners and it just shoots through them its amazing what a difference it makes words can't describe it.

 

The kit I got was this one

 lee, it was £249.


 


rox1oh, the ride is a bit bouncy on day to day driving and very stiff over speed bumps etc, but ive had it on the car now just over a week and ive got used to the ride. its very smooth on smooth roads and quite bumpy/bouncy on rough roads but if you want the better handeling you have to pay the price i guess lol.


 


Ive still to play around with the setup drop the car a bit more, see what it rides like then. But some adjustable drop links are needed first me thinks as its already knocking on the drive shaft I think

 looks nice mate i think you need to wind them down a little more unless they are on the bottom setting already?? also if they are it could be your shockers that are stopping it going down more... what shocks have u got are they standard? or ones that came with coil over setup

Yes they are tinted from factory [whistle] but not aftermarket tinted..

 

and they are not at the bottom setting yet far from if i remember correctly. And yes I have got the shocks from the coilover kit.
