    Scared the hell out of me. Especially when I stopped and saw how close it was to the sump...

    Not sure how Perspex would do with a bigger hit is the only problem

    That's like what I want. But I want to go back to the chassis rails. What's holding that up at the back?

    you can pick up an x brace for 50 then itll just be your chassis rails and exhaust which there is not a lot you can do about.im taking mine up 15mm this weekend its just to low im hitting the floor and cats eyes with just me in it.

    Ill keep an eye for an x brace then. Anyone know if they fit the compact? Seems bmw decided to make every single piece a little shorter rather than just cutting off the boot...
