    Too much. Not unless your doing it properly. You won't actually have a lower centre of gravity and it'll make your car handle like s4it

    I agree not a good look on any vxr imo


    Also it seriously affects the handling. You should in theory add a roll centre kit. But unfortunately there isn't one for the corsa D. When you lower a corsa the wishbone etc ends up sticking up in the air and not facing down or at least level. Anyone who has a lowered corsa will have this to some extent but 60mm will be too much strain. It's same principle as holding a bucket of water as high as you can instead of carrying it at arms length

    Will not be just Springs you would be looking at for handling improvements you will need to look into Anti Roll Bar upgrades, Torsion Bar etc. Anything to make the Car more rigid while playing around with Suspension.

    Eibach or PI springs would be best - 30-40mm drop.

    £90 - £140 quid off ebay.

    Mine is the blue edition vxr which as uprated suspension over std and I have never felt the need to change suspension or lower it, it handles so good 60mm lower WHY? It won't handle that much better , it will scrape on all the crappy roads and bumps and imo look stupid , 30mm is more than enough with a decent Bilstein or top brand set up you can't go wront
