Full KW kit 40mm drop, supplied and fitted by Jabba Sport. On 17 inch, genuine 2008 Audi TT Coupe wheels, 50 profile Continental tyres.

There is equipment in the back which makes it sit lower than an empty van would! Ian :D

A couple of before shots on standard wheels.


Then the after shots, on 18 inch RS4 copies, with a full CMC 60mm kit. No weight in the back at the minute, so that will sit lower once finished.


cheers
Paul
