my car is on coilies and sits like so...





now to go any lower on the front i need a whiteline uprated arb, these cost 130 quid ish, and also stiffen the front end promoting understeer.

so do i spend 130 quid spoil the handling and scrape every where and not be able to get on gfs drive to look good or leave as is? opinions?

also it doesnt really look like this anymore, will be washed and pics tomorow

If lowering the front more will knacker the handling up I'd be raising the rear a tad as it has the stance of a macdonalds saxo atm

Looks over function or function over looks? 2 very contrasting avenues to go down with the 130!! Up to you at the end of the day - you drive it!

Looks too low at the rear already imo.

Why is this even a question?

You'll put up with not being able to drive it properly because 'it looks good'.

You can't see what it looks like when it's driving and not many other people will think it looks good.

Slam it, get some pictures to show off to a few people on forums who think it looks good then put it to a height that means it can be driven.

Cast your mind back to Corsa B's with 20XE engines fitted, when running coiliovers, whiteline rear ARB alot of users reported that removing the front arb made the car feel more stable or something. I guess hes applying the same science to the Golf and why not..

would save me 130 quid and allow it to be slammed, if i was to say get a strut brace, would this counter act any effects of removing it?

Fair enough. I'd personally want to sort out the handling rather than compromise it further by slamming it even more thats all

i'd raise the rear a little and it would look perfect. you say it handles great now, so would you want to slam it and ruin the handling?

IS it just me or deos that back wheel look wonky in the first pic, is it the angle of the camera?

The gap at the back is a lot more than the front, doesn't look right
