Looool yea I'll be the same, I'll get the wheels first and see, I'm liking the transporter sportline alloys (pissed, I missed a brand new set for 395 on eBay a few weeks ago), so I'll sort them out first, then chat to some garages about the amount to lower it.

One more thing, your foglight blanks, were they standard? Mine only have one longer "spike" yours have the 3, much prefer them but never seen any for sale anywhere?

I'm surprised you can carry weight that low! Makes me feel better though haha, I just get flashbacks of my 98 polo scraping driving over a leaf lol

Na no fogs yet, debating on adding them, set on eBay for 220odd from Germany. Probz just end up glossing them though, that's alot for some foglights

See mines only got the centre "pointy bit" I prefer your type Image

Don’t get me wrong the high square speed bumps I get scared but only every now and then just go slow I don’t hit them at speed.

I think there totally different bumpers mate

Mine is just the start line bumper, I don’t believe my grills fit your bumper, the fog lights and grills don’t fit my bumper but they do fit yours

I've caught my side bars going over speed humps a few times, but I would rather the bars catch than something important under the van...... 👍🏻

I got mine before I lowered it and would like to change for side skirts at some point. No problems with the current 60mm drop with them, I get more issues with the mudflaps on speed bumps usually.

It’s a Maxi Life so a different look, and I think they stick out too much at the side (Vanstyle bars) but overall I like it until I get round to the Audi S5 skirts or something else.

You can find a pair for half the money in Poland. See reply here under.

You can find a pair for half the money in Poland. Shipping from there isn’t expensive, mostly cheaper then send something to an address in your own country. The pieces for in the bumper you can get cheaper there as well. Caddy is built there so parts used are there easier to find as they have plenty of space for dismantling companies and they earn in general less over there and have less costs.
