being that low you will always have to remember what car parks you can and carnt park in due to sizes of speed humps, it dont matter how well you think you can get over them on agles. as the bumper gets to the speed hump before you wheels do.

forget about going to the drive in lol.

lift it a little and get the bodykit.


sideskits won't make a lot of difference. They generally don't go any lower than the sills already are.

they have horrible speed humps at r shop... not drive up drive along and drive down 1s if u know wat i mean.. theyre just a straight bar across the whole road.. having a commodore s and falcon xr6 it gets very annoying when u go down and notice 5 more of the same bumps added. mum always scrapes the commodore but every1 else seems to be able to get over them by going diagonal.. dont know how that works but it does lol

anyway.. get the kit and raise her up a bit more :)
