Ive decided what i want doing to my Silver EP2.

Firstly, lower by i dont know how much.

Stick some 16" rota 'lightweight range/boost' alloys on it, im thinking gunmetal colour.

then find me some type-r style skirts.

Main question i would like answered would be.... lowering.

I dont know where to start, im thinking full coilovers, so if someone could give me a website or a place where i can get em thatl be helpfull.

Also, alternatives to coilovers, i want something decent thatl last. I THINK il be lowering about 30mm, again, views on this would help.

Cheers.

If your only looking for a 30mm drop I would invest in a decent set of lowering springs as they do the job fine for a small drop and won't set you back anywhere near as much as coilovers would.

For the skirts I would recommend checking eBay for any spares/repairs CTR's and just buy the ones off an actual Type R and fit them, just remove the Type R decals.

Hope that helps, I'm sure others will be able to offer more advice!

Nice to put a face to the name today dude btw! :D

Haha, I only went in to tell Dan I'd got the Type R because he was slagging me for buying one as he was jealous! lol

Saw your EP parked up too (i think) looks cleaner than mine! lol

Yeah I would go on the assumption that the more expensive, the better quality, I'd reckon you'd be looking around the £100+ mark.
