    So today I got a major defect for being too low, cant complain as it was a bit low however I would still like to have the car on lowered suspension. The police officer that issued me the defect notice said that king springs are illegal to have on your car but he did recommend the fe2 suspension. So where could I get a hold of fe2 suspension and does anyone have any photos of how it sits?

    Yeah he wasn't very nice, also gave me a fine for using an unsafe vehicle. I'm trying to work out how to have it lowered and still be legal...

    So are bags legal? Are you aloud to roll around scraping everywhere or do you have to still have it at the stock height with bags?

    Bags arent legal without an engineers certificate. You're technically limited to fe2 or 'low' springs

    Bags will need an engineer to sign off on them.
    U still have to have the car sitting above 100mm while on the rd or public property.

    I done some research on the internet and apparently the vn s and vn ss comes stock on fe2 suspension so in other words in not aloud to lower it more than stock? An yeah he done me for to low at the rear it didn't have 2/3 suspension travel

    Yeah the laws do make it very hard to be able to have a nice stance while staying leagle, thats why mine became a weekend warrior only. That and it seems i must drive like a wanker if i drive it.

    Mabe u can get away with ur king spings with an air shock in the rear. Means u can dump it at home and mates houses ect.
    Then raise it when driving

    Have not made a post in a while, not much has change though.
    The stock size fuel tank started leaking, it had a small split so i got a bigger tank. The guy i bought it from said it's an 85L not too sure though.

    I took the moulds off. Got sick of them they don't line up and they looked messy in between and the pinstripe was starting to come off so I have decided to go all plain white. I am hoping it should look good all white with the SS lower lip and some window tint or maybe even just leave it as is.

    I love how the ash tray has been replaced with 12v and USB ports
