    Hey there.

    Hope the car treats you well. You can get lip kits from places like HT Autos. Parts from Scooby world or RallySportDirect. Have some springs and struts here if needed. Shameless plug I know.

    I have the same immobilize pad, codes and how to reset and put your own code in should be in a book in your glovebox. If you want coilovers, Iíd recommend Meister Rís. Can set to hard or extreme soft.

    Cool

    Welcome to the club and congrats on the new car!

    Re parts: I personally have used Ebay a lot and Matt Baker off Scoobynet always has cars being broken for parts and is reasonable with shipping. Also, check the forums here and post what you are looking for as a lot of people have bits they might want to sell on that's just in the garage.

    Re suspension:
    1. Kyb SR with Eibach springs and replace all worn out rubber bits. It will handle a lot better and be comfortable. It won't drop the ride height to the extent of having that flushed look but expect a 30mm drop all around with the fronts still looking a bit higher than rears as thats how they are set up
    2. Coilvovers - Much more versatile and the technology has moved ahead significantly such that you can get sets that are compliant to our crappy roads and still with the twist of the dials, harden it up for some back road bashing or when on track. I am running Meister R Zeta CRD+ on the wagon and have driven from Dublin to London on them with a family of 2 kids. It also handles really well when hooning or on track.
    3. Do consider thicker front and rear anti roll bars with new drop links. They make a significant improvement too and adds to the enjoyment

    And yea, post some pictures of the car
