Mine's on 40 mm H&R, never had the car on standard springs, as I had the dealer fit them upon delivery, but the car dosn't feel too bad in comfort.

I really can't make my mind up, weather to go 30 mm or 40 mm.

I suspect 40 mm would look better with 17" standard alloys? Close the wheel arch gap more?

But don't want a really hard ride.

Can anyone advice please?

Thanks.

I know UK is big, but I also know there are several meets during summer, and if I'm not mistaken, there will be a few members attending with lowered car, perhaps if you ask one of them you can feel the difference?
I know that I, as a fellow K owner, wouldn't mind letting someone ride along and feel the difference, if it could help them decide what to buy.

Cornish - I registered on the forum just to let you know that the wheels look awesome and same goes with the rear roof spoiler!

Any details on those two would be great!

Do you have a picture of the back of your car... spotted what looks to be a different exhaust to standard or tips. :twisted:
