My old el sedan was 80mm off the ground at the gearbox with no passengers and low fuel with the 19's on and below 70mm with 15's on it. Thats one of the reasons why I couldnt get insurance and the car was eventually stripped and crushed

there is no bragging rights in having your car low.
great way to find a canary attached to your window.

Spac -> That seems a bit silly, to crush the car cause it was too low....

Anyway, Lowest point on my car is a tad over 100mm, so it's legal. It still scrapes on a lot of speed humps, I don't know how anyone can deal with a car that is lower on public roads.

Cheers

The car was crushed because it couldnt sell. tThe reason it was being sold was the insurance and that it was to impractical for the family

Mine was about 65mm to the bottom of the cat but iv tucked it up to about 85 or 90. Still need to get it up a touch higher as it goes "ting" over speed bumps
