Wider will increase the road friction so rob a little power. Larger diameter will rob a little engine power also and be the bigger contributor towards this. I have no idea how that will affect the apparent feel of the vehicle or sluggishness. It will be most noticeable if you have a 1.6ltr engine and probably hardly noticeable if a 3.2ltr. Others can comment better on this. I have a 3.2ltr and although my tires and slightly larger I didn't notice much change. It will also affect the speedo but in my case the increase was less than yours and I consider that it probably zeroes out the tendency to under-read that is inherent in most vehicles. In your case you need to be aware of this if you happen to have over zealous cops around.

My new tires added 6mm in height gain. My raise kit (springs and shocks) came with adjustable camber bolts (which I believe you can buy separately). It is a 5 speed auto and is quite quick off the line (but this is relative I guess compared to other vehicles).
If I had to do it all over again I would wait until I could get a rare 3.2ltr (229hp).
