Should be fantastic! EL's always look awesome lowered.

My lowering wasn't quite so elaborate, but definitely one of the best things I have done to the car! Hope ya love it!

As an owner of a lowered EL I will just say you are not going to regret it m8! Lowering my car has been the best thing I have done so far.......best money I have ever spent.

EL's look awesome lowered. Mine has full pedders sports ryder suspension and I couldnt be happier.

Sounds great mate - a high quality set-up.

You might also consider a camber kit, especially if you go more than 3 or 4 cm low.

Yeah, definitely get a camber castor kit, I did, and never regretted it. The front wheels sit at a beautiful angle too....

Good luck with it :o)
