Needs more low

My car definitely needs more low, but i don't think I'm going to lower it. Looks a bit corny not lowered, but the ride is pretty stiff already (imo). At least i don't have to worry about scraping the bottom of my car.

First time cleaning the interior. Got my car 29 days ago.

Your car is looking good!

Nope, it doesn't need to be any lower. The suspension and ride height are just perfect for all around driving.

See, I saved you some more money -

My last 2 cars were both lowered on coilovers. So when I see a non-lowered car, it always looks high to me. I won't be lowering it though.

Thanks to you, I won't have to eat Kraft dinner for the next 2 months, lol.

... gotta love the RS2's subtle but stylish lip and spoiler.

Definitely don't lower if you daily and winter it, keeps the car functional hehe. Put MP4S's when your tires wear out and (imo) it looks pretty sick at stock height.

I actually felt the TRD springs improved the ride quality. Also, haven't had any clearance issues, but I do live in Los Angeles not Canada. Give it a try, pretty easy to swap back if it doesn't work out for you.

If you can snag a set of 17+ OEM shocks and combine that with TRD springs. They're about the perfect drop(0.75-1")
