Thanks guys! Indeed I did use coilovers, even with no springs on standard shocks you won't get this low! I used HotTuning ones from ebay, just search Corsa B coilover, they have the exact same fitment. I do have some new ones going on though, a pair of Spax Krypton gas coilovers with solid rally topmounts pics soon
Just realised I hadn't updated this with pictures of the Spax coilovers fully wound down! The car hasn't really changed much. I've been currently running VW Golf steels through the winter but should be back on the Compomotives soon. Thinking about fitting some 165 55 13s to them for less of a "square" sidewall that I get with the current 175 50 13s. I have some other ideas, hoping to fit an external rev counter, possibly a full length "Nascar" style rear view mirror and possibly more work on the interior. Long term I'd like to source either a 1.6 8v or 2.0 8v engine to keep weight similar, I'd prefer the car to handle well rather than have silly power but end up in a ditch.
these are taller tires, lots of stretch but too much sidewall for my liking. Yes the front one is flat.
