I've had some combat sideskirts in my garage since january! my parents don't want to let me put em on because they think my car is too low... and they'll get smashed on the first speed hump. I don't really want to shell out for 17's yet and if I did I'd make my car even slower!

So the question is, would you put combat 1 skirts on a car lowered 40mm on 15's...???

Would I be crazy to do this? I'd hate to spend a load getting em sprayed and fitted then have em smashed...

Thanks,

Paul J

Good on your parents for not letting you fit them might look daft without the bumpers modded aswell

Anyway - thought you were going for the street sleeper approach??2.0L with std kit

yeh well thats the other thing, they also think it's too low to put a new front on it hehe...

its not low at all compared to some I've seen.

This was a birthday present... to have skirts bought, sprayed (+ arches sprayed) and fitted...

so once they go on I should be able to put a new front / rear on at the same time.

I don't wanna shell out on a front now if I'm gonna need to buy some 17's coz it'll be too low...

I would ultimately like 17's - but at the moment I can only do 1 thing at a time.

Colin J where did you get that idea?

I'd love to get a 2.0 16v conversion - but the insurance would be far too high at the moment...

I want a merseyspeed / R&A front, combat skirts, euro rear... a dual exit exhaust system, 1 not too big pipe either side, some 17" Dare V2's or Mille Miglia Evo's (what I have at the moment but mine are 15)...

Then maybe a saxo roof spoiler...

........ Ah that'd be so nice.
