Are they megane/Laguna wheels? I quite like em. May be just the pic but looks like they could use a spacer on the back.

There is a group buy on rovertech for alloy top mounts which can give you more camber. The rear camber looks like it needs attention too (unless you've set it up like that).

the rear always cambers in when you go that low, it's ok, I need to address the rear toe but I can live with the camber, people pay loads to get that amount of camber :P

I just need to space the wheels out so their nearer the rear arch, and lower the front more :P

You can get adjustable top arms to sort the rear camber out though. The toe may be more problematic but perfectly possible to fix. (I think you run out of adjustment in the pre-cut slots from memory).

Alternatively, put it at a more sensible ride height! :)

:o

what do you tell people when they tell you to get sensible modern car with no rust issues.....

that's exactly what I could say to your remark...
:tt2
the whole point of this car is to be different and if I left this car too high it would just be another R8 chassis people don't look twice at, (except us sad lot :P)
