oh I dunno, looks a fair difference to me, though its not helped by the different angles!

In your not lowered pic, it looks like you'd get a fist through the gap between rear wheel and arch, same can't be said of the "after" pic

You have to lower the golf quite a lot before it looks obviously lowered.

They have huge arches which swallow up wheel quite easily, and start off quite

high. I lowered mine 50mm using eibach's and koni's and not many people noticed

it was lowered. The difference in handling was incredible though.

Hi There,

Your car looks very nice with the spring change[:D]

I got mine fitted last week and although 30mm isn't a massive drop the handling and ride is a hell of a lot better than before. Mine only has 16" wheels on, so doens't look at c[:D][:D]l as yours with 18" on[8)][8)].

no mate that looks cool but also where the bottom of your bumpers are painted that makes a difference and makes the car look lower, that is on my list of things to do, but looks good mate i have been told that the front springs on mine are 25mm and the rear is 30 and they are sorting out the 30mm fronts to make it look right, on some of the cars 25 front and 30 rear makes it even but not on my car

Looks very good to me mate, i'm going with -30mm Eibach's on my Bora and would be very happy if the ride height turns out like yours as it's like a land rover at the moment! [:I]

Can't wait to get them fitted now [^]

I am not bragging, I am just informing.... ha!

But looking back I would pay the full retail anyway as I am that impressed.

I've had mine lowered for about 3 weeks now on 30mm Eibach pro kit with 18"'s. At first not a great drop and I was dissapointed but they have definately settled lower now three weeks on and it looks just right now [:D][:D]

MUDFLAPS!!! I mean, mudflaps would look cool

Hi There,

I've got some mudflaps in the garage, although I never put them back on once the valances were colour coded as I thought it may look odd.

Cheers
