I've had stupid low cars since i've been on the road, dragging myself around everywhere, its all well and good doing "slow n low"... but once you get something a bit quicker, you want to actually drive it quickly, instead of slowing down every 10 yards for a cats-eye or snail shell. I might get coilovers for it, just to lower the front a bit more (20mm tops), but really not going to deck this one i dont think.

I was 50/50 about buying it from the pics in the advert, and i was looking at other examples of modded boras, bling rims, deck it to the floor etc... but now i've got it, the wheels already really suit, so i dont know if i'll bother wasting money trying to change the looks too much.

Instead i think, just keep it tidy, perhaps look into audio (although the standard setup in these isnt that bad tbh)... then just look at making it faster
TBH mate I don't blame you. I put 8" BBS RM's on my Polo, and had it pretty low and it was just so impractical. Yes it looked good but I could only just take a passenger in the front seat! So it only stayed like that for a few weeks. Ive taken the coilovers off now to, the handling obviously isn't as good but it doesnt rattle, its smoother and I actually quite prefer the drive. The arch gap is gayy but i think what ever I get next Im either going to spend more money and get decent coilovers or just get some springs.

I want POWWEERRR!

exactly, im glad someone understands and doesent just call me gay lol (awaits forestfighters reply of "gay" tbh haha!)

I was thinking air tbh, would love to try it after having coilovers on all my other cars, but theres not much point on this car, as 18" wheels means it cant go crazy low anyway, without arch rolling and flaring.

I think im just getting old lol, im 22 next month... i've had my fun with kids toys lol
