60mm looks great on 15 inch alloys with low profile tyres. And then side skirts and bumper skirts.
And anything below 60mm is like going down the road on your ar*se.

If you're going to go 60mm without shocks to match, they won't last long at all, the rod will be sat permanently too low in the cylinder. The gas will escape due to the pressure.

If you can deal with the ride though, corners seem a lot more fun afterwards.
I have 50mm on both of my cars with 15's, and the handling is awesome. The red one has decent dampers, and the difference in ride and handling is very noticable.

yeah, ive got 60mm spring on my corsa and i have got the dampers to go with it as i have heard that without the dampers then you will reck the standard dampers. i have got 16 inch alloys on mine and i have to agree with you stationmiek that the handeling is amazing, especially arounf the welsh roads like i found out last night.
