It's low modulus sealant as advised by the company who supplied the rims

Will consider lowering when the current shocks give up, any suggestions it's not an area I know much about

really nice mk2, have you had a respray and new bumpers fitted?

I am in the process of doing up my mk2, i have a new set of bumpers and am thinking about getting the wheel arch kit and some alloys as well as getting a respray.

around 8cm's, if you want it lower you'll need smaller rims.
