That's what i use it for...rear facing seat isofixed in and airbag off It's so handy to have her in the front to be able to glance over to make sure she's ok when it's just me and her in the car. Otherwise she's at the back.

Thanks again. The build is coming along but slowly.

EXCITING STUFF!!!
Mate I feel somewhat bad and deserve . Forgot to mention the great help you gave. Please note people...this guy drove down from central london to mine for 9am and worked with me on one of the days CONTINUOUSLY till 6pm. Even took me to halfords. Truly appreciated his help!!!
So take note and keep it in mind...if you need coils changing Josh will give a whole day worth of free labour! Ha!

Well done man, the car looks great at its new ride height!

I'm hopefully fitting mine this weekend, do you have any tips or anything after coming across any hitches etc in the installation? Was that rear-top-mount washer change image correct in its info and is that the only mod that was required?

I don't suppose you have any pics of the adjusters in their final locations for your chosen ride height that I can use to set them up before fitting? Would be a nice little cheat

Cheers man, looking forward to seeing this in person

HAHA Don't mention it. I didn't do much anyway but only a numb nut would drop the nut that holds the rear strut in place #JustSaying
Hence the needed trip to Halfords for a flexi magnet.

And how can you sell me and my time like that... It isn't free, but i do take Tea as payment.

So after sometime with the BCs and doing both city and motorway driving i can say

Comfort
These things are great. The progressive nature of the coils is almost unreal. Im thoroughly impressed.

Handling
Great. I dont get that feeling that im loosing grip off the front tyre in sharp fast corners. Very good feedback.

Quality
The kit does look the business and quality seems really really good.

Really cant fault them or Sumil. Through him i was able to get them for a really good price. If you're looking to get these get in touch with him and he'll sort you a great price and the speediest of deliveries!!!!!

Good idea fitting headlining up there as well. Saved renting a van

Car is sitting good now and I'm looking forward to seeing the new rims. I'm waist deep studying for an exam and I take a week or two out and your car is transformed lol

So on sunday I fitted dual cone intakes and the my jb4. OH MY GOSH!!!!! Its an amazing transformation!!...a completely different car and such a pleasure to drive. Power in any gear at any rev! Love it immensely. I mean when you can break traction at 90mph??!!!

Next to be fitted is my catless down pipes and then that will be it for power mods until next year I think when I'll consider a charge pipe and may be an intercooler.

Must say a big thank you to Josh for offering tech support in getting the jb4 set up. Big respect!

Mate, our turbo cars respond so well to a simple tune. It isn't just the increase in power, it is the way the power is delivered which also makes a massive change.

One of the best mods!
