Hi Chaps
Hav'nt had the wheels off yet,she sits on 18's with 225x40's,does the height look standard or slightly lowered

Only asking,as since i bought her,i'm finding one of the former owners had undertaken a few upgrades,which the guy i bought it off never mentioned

If it has it's not buy much. :) Looks about the same as my ///M. Have you taken a peek at the springs?

Are the wheels Veemann 34s by any chance ? 8)

Much the same as mine at the front. My shocks look original so will be 15 years old now. Have new shock coming in September for a refresh. That may change the height. Surely after 15 years they will have lost a bit of rebound.

They are very similar style & colour to my own 19inch Veemann's but on closer scrutiny i don't think they are the same

When I get the wheels off how will I tell if the height is standard or changed

the easiest way to find out would be getting your head in and looking for markings on the springs.

If you find markings then someone on here will know what they are.

Looks standard if it's a 3.0i as they came with sport suspension from factory unless otherwise specced

Definitely lowered, looks spot on for Eibach springs.

Interesting to know the answer with all these different opinions.
Personally I don't think it's lowered :)
