      Just a little update ppl. Waiting on a set of Nankang Ns2 tyres 185/35r17. To stretch on the 17x7.5 rim. This is how it will sit...



      The speedo will be off abit but the car will sit 20mm lower . So make it 140mm drop to the deck.

      Also the poke will be a extra 20mm with the adapters and 30mm or 40mm extra on back depends on if I can get the 40mm adapters

      This is with 20mm adapters...



      This is with 30mm...



      And with 30mm even more poke if I can

      am very upset to admit this but i have done my maths wrong, my car is not 160mm

      a dunno whether it was coz i have never had coil overs before, or am just a young lad who things he knows everything, but really knows nothing but it it only 75mm front and 80mm back,

      so ppl who said it wasnt 160mm your were right and i was wrong am sorry , feel like a right tit ops:

      i only have really worked this out, today as my lass has just picked up her new 10plate polo moda 1.2 with A/C in red

      pics of her car are under my lowering facts..

      1) my lowering facts and how i was so bloody wrong,

      i thought with coilovers, when they stated on the box, "120mm movement on coils", i thought they meant 120mm from standard high up or down, not 120mm altogether, as this means 60mm up or down from standard height, if you know what i mean,

      so these me thinking my car was 120mm lower then standard and in fact it is only half this at 60mm

      i then got the helpers out which i thought took it 20mm lower, when in fact it was only about 10mm, so i thought it then sat at 140mm drop when in fact it was only about 70mm drop from standard

      then the wheels i thought took the car another 20mm with the tyre and wheel combo, when in fact it was only 5mm to 10mm lower, so i thought it was then 160mm drop, but it fact was 75mm to 80mm

      like so...

      my lasses standard height (225mm from floor to top of front bumper)...



      my car height now (150mm from floor to top of front bumper)...



      as you can see it is only a 75mm drop at front and the back is 80mm from what i can measure..

      IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS WRONG PLEASE HELP ME

      its just me thinking ano it all when in fact i am all wrong, but you live and learn, and i am really disappointed with my self

      but in my defense i am only 19, this is my 2nd car and i have never owned a set of coil over before
