Would look very tidy with the spoiler and mud flaps removed. Ride height looks ok as it is if budget is at a minimum but if it will allow the front could go down a bit, and for some reason i think they sometimes look a little lower when the spoiler is removed.
Either way it looks nice.

Just did a quick photoshop on my car to see how it would look with no side strips and no wing and mud flaps all gone... i think it looks much better...

the photochop does lok alot better, and i think what would be a good thing for the car, would be matching coloured side mirrors.
and is it just me, or do you have a huge antenna

I reckon lower it an inch or 2 - super lows would make it look great!!
Although maccas speedbumbs may get a little too friendly with your undercarriage if you go too low!! I reckon it looks lower than what it is cause you got her on grass in the piccy!! I know when I want mine to look lower I park it on grass - tricky & cheap mod!! LOL :lol:
Clean car though dude!! Lose the rear spoiler and maybe some dark window tint, especially with that colour on the car - it'll look hot!!

Wont be doin to much to it in the near future... im rather happy with it atm. And also i have a question. Wat is a link pin? My shock has a rattle in it... it almost sound like a ringing noise. The reason i ask is a mate thinks it could be the link pin causing it. Also i just got a wheel alignment and and the camber adjusted with shims but the tire still makes the rumbling noise while turning left.... could that be the link pin aswell?

From experience - could be link pin - could be the wheel bearing - and it could be your rear bushes!! Either way get it checked asap as it can cause all sorts of greif if left...
