I was looking at the same thing. Even before they settle they should be lower, but the gap looks normal if not higher. Maybe it's the angle with the black on black.

Sorry, that was on stock springs. I will post more photos later today.

It looks good just the way it is. I don't see the point of lowering a car, it puts a strain on everything else under the car. The ride is worse and you have tip toe around town. No thanks.

The combo is stunning though. What is the code for that wheel?

Love the car but I have to get used to the wheels! If you do the wheels in black are you also getting the shadowline trim and the black M perfomance kidneys?

The drop is perfect on H&R spring. Only 0.75 to one inch drop.

Maybe, not sure about that yet. Just trying to keep it as close to the original as possible. That's the reason why I picked this wheel.
