if your wanting to sell it, then it will be easier to sell with the standard spec, if your wanting to sell it the way it is, then advertise it in mag's, paper, autotrader, clio owner club forums, cruising forums, the more you do then the more chance you have of selling it.

if you dont want to sell it then how about getting bigger wheels? that should lift it off the ground a little. lowering your car will always bring problems with speedbumps, mines lowered an i have to crawl over bumps at 5mph, i dont mind but its the price you have to pay for lowerin you car

hope this helps

just change the springs mate, to bring the car up to a decent ride height, me mate got a saxo vts n its so low its a joke, he wants to put a rage body kit but needs the car to be brought up a bit for it to fit properly, so its not an impossible job.

As for not having people in the back, thats one of the things that go hand in hand when you have ya car lowered, besides stops random people scroungin lifts off ya!

it depends on the quality of your s[rings as well!! mines lowered so the arches at the back touch the top of my 17's and i can actually get 3 in the back ive found!! sayin that my saxo i cudnt have any so depends on the springs as i said!! try chgin the springs to eibach as they gaurentee you can carry the same weight as the normal ones!!

i think theyve got torsion bars, so it should be fairly cheap to sort it out

is it possible to stiffen a torsion bar? im under the impression that you can lower them but they will be just as soft as standard?
