damn that be low.

i like the ironic 'Fast Car' photo - you wont be going anywhere fast at that height, haha.

I dont like the look personally, but fair play, must be a lot of effort gone into it to get it that low.

If it had some wheels that fit and unstretched tyres, I actually think that would be quite cool and I'd be impressed at someone going to the trouble of using airbags.

The wheels make it look too much like every other car owned by people that can't think for themselves, though apparently, you can.

Your car deserves better wheels.

As I said wheels are being changed..... Although if I was to fit in stretched tyres if have to get the weakest fitment in the world and tuck the rear aswell IMO that would look worst

I'm not gonna lie and say yeah it handles like 1000 coilovers but to the standard of your 150 racelands it's pretty good. Adjustable dampening allows me to change anything and the lower I go the stiffer it gets.

I will post some pics of the bags later all standard strut towers.

Looks good in the first pic, not a fan of big lows and stretched tyres but then I'm old and boring (well an old man in a young man's body - I'm 31!!).

I reckon with the same wheels as in the 1st pic but just a tad bigger and it's spot on in my book - but each to his own!
