@Sean1066 if you don't mind me asking, what was the total cost inc fitting for lowering the caddy? Just trying to balance out what's the best option are.
Hi billyblunt

It cost me £395 for the Vmaxx lowering kit.
For the fitting. Cost me £200+ vat.
So in total it was £635

And with the Vmaxx kit I didn’t need centralising plates

@Sean1066, thanks for the reply. The fitting was less than I thought it would be. How long did it take them? I'm torn between springs & a shackle set or coilovers. I don't want to go crazy low & It's more about a decent ride.

They had a bit of trouble with mine. (With the front)
The back was straight forward. I didn’t need the centralising plates as the Vmaxx had it built in
So it to about 6 hours.

I'd also like to know how many speakers you can hook up? Looks cool though!

Recently had the rear windows tinted, rear r32 style bumper and exhaust tips fitted.

I also run vehicle wrap firm in Gloucestershire, so expect some crazy colour on this thing come Feburary. We have just done T5.1 camper actually looks great.

Yesterday I managed to get the 19" BBS alloy wheels fitted wrapped in Conti tyres.

Looks great but it's way to high now lol
So i do need coilovers guys, any going ?ImageImageImageImage

That T5 looks great. I didn't know you could wrap the PVC bumpers? I have some discoloration on my PVC grille and fog light surrounds. Perhaps I could wrap them?
