Looks good! Just a question out of curiostiy, how much did you lower the car by? 20mm or 30mm? and if so, which spings did you use? I'm looking to lower mine using Eibach Pro kit springs but wondering if it'll look good or if it needs to be lower more :D

Mines lowered 35/40 on pi springs. New OEM shocks on the front and new Clio cup shocks on the rear for less bounce. The eibach ones lower it a bit more,which looks nice,I just live where's there's lots of speed humps and found lowering makes the downpipe smash on the humps. Caused problems with my old Micra by smashing the cat internals. Although not had that problem with this car. All depends how carefully you wish to be driving as to how much you're prepared to lower it :)

I see! Well I've bee looking at some Eibach lowering springs for Nissan K12 models and I've only found two (Prokit that lowers it by 30mm and sportline which lowers it by 40mm, according to eBay).

With me living in Nottingham, theres a few bumps here and there, in addition the different road levels lool. So I'm just wondering how low I can go. I also want to replace my 16" alloys with a new set of 17" (hopefully lol).

I really appreciate the reply :)

I've had both 16" and 17" on mine,16" you can had a higher wall tyre for a smoother ride (I had 205/50/16) 17's are a bit more harsh a ride but look tidier with the lower profile tyres in my opinion. I've always had 205/40/17 on the 17's To get a bit more poke I'd recommend going for offset (et) of about 35-40. Standard Micra alloys range from 40 on 14" steels to 50 on the 16" sport alloys,but they sink into the arch too much for my liking

Well I'll definitely keep this in mind when deciding what alloys to get! I really appreciate the help Chris :)
