    It leaks, it's clogged, and your car overheats!

    haha, yea, or you take the car to the dealer at 63,000 miles and they realize that your fluids are mixing (transmission, radiator) because of a coil problem and charge you $1400 for a new one. And if your lucky like me, then you will also have to delay lowering because of this. Although it appears you already did the lowering.
