i dont have a ba or any pics but ultras would suit it with 19's as anything else looks too small on ba's as they are bulky cars.

No, it's "reset", they heat the coil spring, and "reset" it to the new height.

I would go ultralows in the front, with reset ultralows in the back if you want it really low.
Otherwise, superlows in front, ultras in the back.
They still sit fairly high with ultralows in the rear, they barely tuck tyre.
