hello and welcome. I'm not sure what modifications you are intending but having seen various attempts the Lag II doesnt really benefit greatly from visual mods as such. Best to stick to performance enhancements really, although brakes etc are genuinely very good on the laguna you could still uprate the pads, shocks and springs, bushes, exhaust etc but theres not a huge amount you can do visually that will make them look any better than they already do

I agree with bncrew it is hard to modify a mk2 Laguna with any sort of bodykit if that is what you're on about I have put phase 1 Louxor alloys on a phase 2 in which I thought has improved the look a lot have a look in the Members Cars section for my car to see what the alloys look like Wink

there are a limited number of body kits available for them and to be honest most of them look dreadful and only result in lowering the resale value of your car

I personally don't believe in adding bodykits to cars. Before owning a car when I was 13 thirteen years ago I always wanted to add bodykit to a car but when I actually came to owning a car at 17 I went off bodykits altogether and never have wanted them since. I didn't pass my test until 19 though been driving for over 6 years now.

i think certain cars and certain kits can do quite well together such as the extremely rare maxi kit for the r19 and other such in your face items but for a family saloon (hatchback) such as the Lag II they just dont look right

I like the low (not too low though) subtle look and not over the top but suppose it comes down to everyone having different tastes etc.

oh yeah absolutely, each to their own and all that. I do enjoy slight lowering although in the past ive had some excessively low cars not to mention some bizarre mods. If i was to do anything to the lag id say it would all be performance based with maybe 35 mil drop on the front and 40 on the back
