Hi All,
I’m considering getting some 30mm lowering springs but not sure if it’s worth it and unsure how much of a visible difference it would make, any opinions or before and after photos would be must appreciated.

Many thanks

Check whether speed bumps (otherwise known as sleeping policeman) are on your regular routes, and whether lowering will make them be a problem. Not all speed bumps on private property adhere to the 100mm maximum height, one restaurant near Southampton has speed bumps that are 130mm...

My C1 scrapes every time I bring it onto the drive at home because of the reduced ground clearance.

Thanks Petroldave, don’t have problems with sleeping policeman/speed bumps... it’s just the hills (which my Aygo loves [UNAMUSED FACE])
