Just picked up my car from getting lowered at the tyre factory in Dandenong. Super lows all round. could have been a little lower if you ask me but doesn't it take like two weeks to settle in?

mate get some larger wheels and she will look lower and you will like the look a lot more.

yes the springs/shocks take a few weeks to settle, but not a whole heap. maybe only looking at a few mm more.

By the way very nice house behind it! very nicely finished and looks top notch!

That paint is awesome, but those wheels just dont suit IMHO.

Get somthing a bit more laid back.
