    I'd always felt the car sat a little high at the front even when on Sport II setting.

    Yesterday I went to see Acid at MSL www.mslcentre.biz and he lowered it via STAR.

    The difference is subtle, but I feel it looks more purposeful than before.

    It's very strange to see someone push buttons on their laptop while your car responds by going up and down.

    I'd like to thank Acid, who, despite me not having called first to say I was coming, showed me great hospitality, including a tour of the recently relocated MSL facility.

    Wish I could do this without having to change the springs.... almost regret not buying a sport!

    Thanks,

    There's no difference to the ride, though it's been suggested that the camber may need checking.

    I'd welcome other views about that.

    Hello Alps,

    Yes I think so - it gets even meaner when required :thumb:.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Looks fantastic now, the front end did seem a bit too high there.

    Its always a good idea to get the car geometrically checked after fiddling with suspension parts or height adjustment.

    Out of curiosity, what size wheels have you got on there mate? And how much did that cpst (if you dont mind saying or PM'ing)

    Thanks.
