    As already said, given a while they'll settle lower than they are now.

    cheers the ride isn't half as bad as i thought it would be.. can feel the bumps alot more but is still quite comfortable. Handling wise - less body roll but im not really pushing it hard. Compared to my last car (Corsa) its taking me a while to get use to it as its sooo different. Every time I throw it into a corner I think of that pic of yours in the field... arghhhh

    always throw some bags of cerment in your boot (or paving slabs)... it won't help your MPG but it seems to be a bloody good way of dropping it
