I'm happy with the price £95 included dishes too I believe, he just must have stopped noticing my emails or didn't want to do it

Surely, that cant include dishes, a single 13" BBS dish is starting at around €85! That was te cheapest 13" dishes I could find

I have seen many people not beeing happy with the ride height of the TA's. Most people cant go low enough without removing helpers and/or changing springs. If you do that, your warranty is not valid any longer. FK's, H&R's and KW's are more expensive, go lower and offer a better ride. 

 

In the above pictures of my car is lowered around 70 mm with another 25-30 mm of treads left on the front. With the adjusters at the bottom of the KW kit with the helpers in and on 175/50-13 I had around 30 mm clearance betwen the road and the cat.

 

9olos car on 195/45 or 195/40-14 back in the days, on FK's I belive

Fk automotive don't make them for this car, only limited companies do and they're all on that link posted above

I had 15's on mine so long as you get skinny tyres you could go low

They don't anymore? They used to...

 

KW and H&R would be my choices. Mines has been on KW's sine 1999

 

As for wheels, I have used anything from 13's with 175/50 to 16's with 195/40 but the best allround choice for me have been 8-14 ET 20 with 195/45-14. They fit fine, unless you have a squareback like mine

 

I vote no for rear camber
