I love that color combo!

Thats a mean drop and aggressive wheel ftiment. The rear tire looks to be a bit stretched? What are your wheel and tire specs?

For some reason your car looks so mean it should belong in the next Star Wars movie, being driven by a storm trooper...

Wow thats pretty low for just sports. It seems there is no gap at all in the back? I didnt think sports lowered the car so much.

So far ride quality hasn't changed. For performance I surprisingly feel less body roll which I'm guessing is cause of the springs. I also drive the car pretty hard in turns too

Yea the back doesn't really have a gap and the front a barely fit one finger in it. I'm glad I went with sports and not the super sports so far

i want to believe you, but the ride had to change. You seem to have gone from stock sport suspension on 18 inch run flats to 20 inch wheel & tire setup and springs. Something had to change in terms of the ride. Even if the car became more "flat" ... the normal highway & city ride had to become a little more harsh, right?

I'm not busting your balls, ..I'm considering the same change. what's the scoop?
