Couple of mods done over weekend

Hi just thought I would share a couple of mods done over the weekend.

1. Windows tinted 50% all around
2. De chromed shadowline and replaced with black gloss incl washer jets.
3. Dropped on h&r springs.
4. BMC panel filter

Really happy with everything so far including the ride quality of the springs, now just looking for a set of new 20" rims, I've got my eye on a set alpinas.

I'd post some pics but I ain't sure how to??

Yeah currently using the oem shocks. The ride seems to be fine just touch harder over bumps but so far so good.

As for the pics, I tried that and didn't work, I guess its a ipad thing will try again later on the laptop.

Those springs will ruin your shocks. Replace the shocks asap. I'd suggest bilstein sports.

No they won't. I've been running H&R's on my OEM shocks and struts for 2 years no problems at all.

Out of interest what size rims have you on your motor?

I've just got hold of a set of 21" schnitzers but I ain't sure if I'm going to put them on yet or not?

I don't know if it will completely kill the ride quality or not?

If you want to post pictures on forums the best thing to do is create an account with photobucket.com or Picassa or similar image hosting service. You can then insert pictures in your post by using the image hosting links. Photobucket even gives you the right code to insert a picture you add it as follows:

I'm running 20" wheels and my ride quality is actually better because i switched out the runflats.

How about with 21s on?

Do you think they would be ok.
