Car still rides on standard suspension (first one for me in decades as I've always gone the whole hog as regards mods with low coils, Koni shocks, etc), but the insurance companies gave me a hard time about the wheels and stipulated "no more mods would be accepted".
Also, my driveway is not that user friendly and most of my cars bottom out (I had to resort to ramps to get in the garage with my MR2!!) so best just to leave as is for the moment.
Interesting point with the wheels is that the front tyre/rim combo is 0.5kg lighter than the standard 17" setup and the rear is just 0.5kg heavier than standard which gives an indication as to how light the rims are despite their size. Certainly helps unsprung weight.
ps You get some great body kits, but simply, they are not for me. I love the original design.
Presently insured with AON, but NAB and RACQ also gave me a hard time.
The issue with the garage is major (particularly when it's raining as I had to get out of the car to put the ramps in place!!). Selling the house may be a bit drastic not to mention what the missus may say!
AON Risk Services Australia Ltd (www.aon.com.au) is an offshoot of one of the largest insurance brokers in the world. Risk is then insured elsewhere, in my case, split between three insurers. Must be high risk!!!
I notice that you havn't got your 19s on the car. If insurance is the issue, I'm happy to give you a contact. Email if you wish.
Im paying a large premium at the moment and they wont insure 9.5" wide wheels in the rear, so if AON are a similar price and will insure 9.5" in the rear then im happy, until my warranty runs out and I get a TT then i'll have new challenge to find insurance.
Oh just remembered the other problem, i'll try anyway.
