presumably that's set to lowest "show" height otherwise I cant see your expensively acquired Irmscher bumper lasting 5 minutes. ;D

I'm very impressed with the amount of money and effort that you have put into the car, but I'm afraid that to me it looks chavtastic. Each to his own however. :y

Yeah that's the lowest setting can raise it up quite a bit i do have a video but not sure how to upload a video on it here so yeah the bumper will be well away from damage lol.
Well if air ride is chavtastic I'd hate to see what you would say to alot of other things.
And yeah 106 Pete aiming to get rears fitted tomorrow and then I pick my bbs up from refurb next week.

Take the comments with a pinch of salt James, remember some... Not all people on this forum are quite a bit older than even me and I'm old! They don't understand that chavtastic is not even a word let alone I haven't heard it since the 90s!!  ;D ;D

In their eyes if it's not completely OEM and as boring as hell then the insults start flying, I had it all when I built that car up... Ooooh it hasn't got standard suspension, ooooh its this.... Oh it's that etc! Sod'em dude, do what makes you happy and continue on the modifying path your on! Car looks ace, keep it up!  :y

It still escapes me how people can be so narrow minded  ::)

I'm not bothered by them lol its my car and my money lol. Most chavs can't afford air suspension anyway lol I'm guessing all the american low riders are chavtastic aswell.
I love it and that's all that matters
