I scrape my Borla exhaust right around the area of this pic. Flex pipe is frayed a bit. Anyone else have this problem? loll...I guess this is the price I gotta pay to have a lowered car [;)]

Winter is gonna be fun, esp once I slap those 15s on [eek]

You driveway must be very steep or your exhaust must hang kinda low. From what I can see off that pic, your low doesnt really look all that low to me. [;)]

Get used to your front bottoming out going over speedbumps. I still clunck over em 2 outta 3 times. [:D]

yea what sucks is my new job has about 20 speed bumps I need to go over b4 I make it to the 8th floor of the parking garage. I swear those things are like 4" tall...scraped on a couple of those. Not to mention it's located in the heart of Newark NJ (capital of the most stolen Audis).

Thank God I have my beater Previa to take there. =)

install some wood 2x4s that way it increases the height of the vehicle.

i'd be very careful with your stock 15's on. the 15's drop the car about another inch or so. that's how i cracked my oil pan. it may be worth it for you to just get a set of cheap 17's.

Yes, as do many who have tried to leave it with a lowered car. But my driveway loves your bumper. It told me so.

That is one big downfall of lowered cars... having to crawl over bumps. My old S10 was the worst because it had a long wheelbase compared to cars... and the frame rails would drag on anything.

My car was so bad when i had the kit on and the 15's. I looked like a madman swerving over every pebble.

Atleast we have parts that hang lower then the oil pan. My FSB has taken a hell of a beating along with my rails, but the oilpan is untouched

why would your wheels make the car lower? The outter diameter of the tire remains the same regardless of what size wheel you have. If your tire diameter is a whole inch smaller than you are causing some real damage to the AWD system.

you gotta go diagonal over all bumps
and of course NO FAT CHICKS

i konw exactly how this feels~
what exhaust do u guys have? i have a Neuspeed G1 turboback, and the exhaust (including the downpipe) hangs lower than the body of the car. And sometimes when there is oncoming traffic, you can't go over the bump at an angle...

My car was so low that I cracked my flex pipe. I think you're only allowed to complain if your car is lowered 2.5"+ hehe.
