I hate to say this if you were looking for a significant drop, but I hardly see the car any lower than stock. At least your happy with the handling and ride and the car looks great at that height too.

I kinda wish the drop was lower, but then this is with the stock wheel/tire setup. I hope to get some 20in HRE's, so maybe the gap will be less between the tire and fender.

Before (Stock)

After (Lowered)
