Haha thanks Tabs, once the arches are rolled, its going down a little more, only a touch though. The location is a mill near to where i live, its so good for pics. Going back in a week or so to get some more. Started snowing when we took these so had to cut it short.

Thanks.

Very nice!!! And the best colour!

What wheels and size are those u got on???
They are Ace 312's and they are 18's, i kinda wish i had got 17's though, it was a hard choice because they had the 18's in stock and i would have had to order the 17's!

Thanks.

Are they planning to roll the arches without spraying afterwards, Chaz? I'm interested to see how they're going to do it... [;)]
All depends on how much they have to roll them. It can be done if you heat the arches but only to a certain extent. The arches need re-sparying anyway because of that nasty dent the woman who had the car before me left, as a reminder of just how bad she was at driving! and i had the spacers on for a bit and the wheels rubbed off a fair bit of paint from the rear arches.

You planning on getting yours done?

Looks great Chaz, the wheel size looks good to me, why go to 17's?

IMO I wouldn't paint the spokes black, I am not too sure they would match the colout of your car?

How low it is really running then?

Well as low as you can go looks spot on to me mate!!

As for the LCR Splitter, looks a lot meaner than anything else on the market, I like it, wish there was something I could put on the front of the Superb as I believe that LCR Splitter is pretty cheap?

Yeah, just need to get the wheels and coils fitted before I can see how much I need to roll. I wan't to try and keep it as stock looking as possible as its not really a reversable mod!
