Have a look at your build sticker which is inside the spare wheel well and that will tell you what type of suspension you have on.
Cant remember exactly what the codes are but I think 1BE is sports suspension.
Hope this helps

Yeah I have sports suspension but I can imagine it being 30mm higher as standard it would be far too high! So looking like I have to go to 35 front and 40mm rear to gain a decent bit of lowering plz help

Hiya Mark!! She looks good to me mate. I would drive her for a week and see how she feels BEFORE I do any lowering, so that you can "feel" what is going on. Lowering is great for looks BUT not always for the ride so go one step at a time and see how the car feels.
