best thing to do is...................

1. buy new top mounts when replaceing ur coilovers (genuine ones will do)

2.THEN buy a new LOWERING Anti roll bar (from venom motorsport) - u will get new bushes with this ...these are around 130 plus fitting

3.Be aware that after u have replaced the above items u WILL need to replace ur wishbone bushes as they will get SEVERE punishment due to the increased stiffness (oo err missus! )
- i have had my coilovers/ARB on for around 4 months and the wishbone bushes are shot!! - they are around 70k miles old and the are creaking like mad!
- so replace these with uprated ones from powerflex


hope this helps fella

There is only one rule to follow when modding your dub dude.

1. Do it for yourself, have an idea and just do it.

You can always photoshop an image of your car with a white roof, to see how it looks, there are people on here that could perhaps do it for you (if you ask nicely lol! )

I believe the bumper off is a straight job, two sizes of star sockets required. One on the wheel arch liners and then behind the vents and the center section below the bonnet lock.
The sides are in sliders so pull them out towards the front and it should slide out.
My Golf front comes off in under five minutes, I can believe the times I tried to leave it on to do work and made things harder for myself.
