    Looks great! I think you are right, raise the rear and drop the front a little. Will look spot on!

    Just realised that the ground was uneven and so took another side on shot. Height between front and rear isn't as far off as first thought. Will measure properly tomorrow and then get it sorted soon.
    Badly needs an alignment. Handling a bit squiffy ATM

    Just realised that car was on uneven ground when first photos taken (slightly raised one side) so retook and tbh looks more even than what I initially thought. Still maybe slight adjustment needed.

    Will these coilovers likely settle? And how long roughly will that take? If they were to settle maybe there would be no need to lower front and just raise rear a tad?

    See new photos below (I adjusted the contrast in order to see the tyre so makes the photos look pretty faded/ poor)

    All comments on height welcome. Appreciate the advice.

    Full lock (need a new bolt thingy to keep arch liner up which could allow a tad more lows up front?)

    Ride height re-adjusted. Think it's spot on now. Very happy with it. Full geo
    setup tomorrow then hopefully that will be the handling sorted.

    Got my control arms on today also and been informed my front lip Is in
    transit, so hopefully not too long to wait now.

    Needs a good clean and some tyre shine.

    Then wait for the hardtop, order a duckbill spoiler and paint the wheels.

    Thanks bud. Scrapes on pretty much every bump and I've been busting quite a few fender clips off recently lol. Had to stiffen front today and will see how that goes. The front seems to have settled a bit and because I got the geo set to oem spec up front then I'm running less camber than I was and that has effected the clearance a tad.

    Hey guys. Had my oem front lip fitted today and had to raise the ride height as the tyres were scrubbing the fenders pretty bad and the front was scraping on big dips in the road.
    Drives brilliantly again, though can't help but think it sat better before being 10mm lower.

    All comments welcome.
    Tim

    Thanks Stephen. Think I finally got it sitting at the height which is the best looks / handling compromise.
    When it was lower I couldn't drive the car how it was suppose to be driven tbh. Was dodging every little imperfection in the road and I still scuffed and scraped on most things. Wouldn't have been long before my fender liner would have caught and ripped out the fender.

    I prefer it that bit higher I think Tim. Looks awesome though, liking the front lip as well.

    Few more photos taken a couple of weeks ago. Still waiting on my hardtop from Rockstar with no word of when it will be ready :worried:

    Bit of an update.

    My car is currently at the bodyshop getting the arches rolled and flared slightly as new wheels have been bought. It is also being treated to a full respray. I though seeing as the fenders will need done, I might as well do the heap. I am having the full car debadged and smoothed (front, rear and sides), and removing the number plate backing and fitting a jdm front plate. The carbon top will also be fitted and I sourced some rare veilside side strakes which will go on as well.

    I also picked up a hondata flashpro to map the car, but will be waiting until I get myself a decat pipe and possibly a J's Racing header.

    Then it's on to the next few things on the list. This modding business certainly isn't cheap.
