    It be better to source the part numbers. Our Opel/Chevrolet dealers should be able to order them.
    I did this with Toyota Altezza parts I needed for my Lexus.
    It should end up cheaper than you expect and with less stress.

    Today we drives to the shop for putting the new exhaus on. The short ride shows, that the KW Coilovers ride absolutely shitty on this height. So we raised the back 1.5cm, which sits now good. Then we raised the front 1.5cm but the spring still has no preload and didnt go higher. So we need to raise it again at the front. Hows looking now (still stupid low at the front):



    Then we taked the illegal exhaus off:


    ...and putting the new one on:



    The sexy tip:

    Today finally I got the rims.
    They are BBS RA375 6x15 ET35 (offset) in the rare black which was only delivered with de Volkswagon Golf 2 "Moda" or Golf 1 Cabrio "Sportsline":

    Today we fixed the front left coilover which was really fucked up because the last owner was rolling too low for an KW V1 so now is the new adjustment plate in:


    The car jacked up:

    Then I also cleaned the rims, but the beds need a repaint of new silver. But I will put them on next week, go to the TÜV, register it, and then put the winter wheels back on and give the BBS wheels to the paintshop.
    Here are the rims:


    The reason why the beds need a repaint:


    Washed them:


    Coilover done:


    Next week we put the tyres on the rim, and then the weels on the car. After that we adjust the right height and go to the TÜV and then register it, so stay tuned!

    Progress is progress.

    Are you sure you'll get the 165/45 R15 approved?
    The circumference is about 7.7% smaller then the 165/65 R14...
    Usually up to 7% is somewhat doable with a very generous TÜV inspector.

    Also, if you went with 195/50 or /45, you have a lot bigger tire selection...

    Yes im sure that its getting approved. Ive talked to a TÜV inspector before.
    The speedo will show 108 km/h when im driving straight 100 km/h and you can get up to 10% difference legal. Yes but 195/45 is a lot to big for 6x15. This wouldn´t look good and for me its to much tyre.
