I have yet to see a good looking 307 with after-market alloys that hasn't been lowered. The amount of times I see 205-40-17 tyres on a 307 is unbelievable and because of the wheel arch height on 307's lower profile tyres look to0 skinny against the body of the car.

I don't mind the alloy wheels but would prefer matt black & if they were colour coded I wouldn't mind the mirrors as I always preferred mirrors with indicators.

How much does it cost to professionally lower? I've been told that lowering could damage shock absorbers

I paid 90 to have our 307 lowered about a year ago with no issues at all, I will probable replace the front ones this year some time with new ones but like I said, so far so good. Apex 45mm lowering springs were 115 so about 200 all in, before & after photo's below...

I do like that. Nice lights too!

Would mine look stupid with a towbar too? Haha I think I know the answer to that!

Like them wheels ach, but i'd steer clear of the over the top stuff (mirrors and lights fall into that category for me!)

I like the more subtle mods, thats why i'm leaving mine as just wheels, tints and front grille

what's ach mean?

Hmmm.. I'm starting to think the mirrors would be too much hassle, and the lights would be too expensive anyway.

Chances are the alloys could be re-sold if I bought them and got a diff car so that wouldn't be too bad.

I got the tints, dead happy with that

Did you get chrome strips for the grille or something?

I'd like to get my windows slightly tinted but haven't got the cash at the mo to justify spending 120+ to get them done.
