    I went with BBS CI-R 20x10. Effective offset will be ET30 F/ET25 R after spacers (wheels are ET 45 without spacers).
    This set up is going to look insane! Cant wait to see it.

    FWIW, I've had elventy inquiries via IG about links on mine (which were custom made by a place my shop uses for all of their lowering links). At least two owners followed up with subsequent 'suspension error' warnings after lowering with links. Both had them set to "slammed" in Dynamic mode, and were likely exceeding some system threshold which generates the warning light. I think going too much below Access mode (lowest setting, only accessible when stationary) will cause issues. Ride quality will also suck.

    I've had mine on for over 1000 miles now, and drive it exclusively at Dynamic ride height ... at which I'm about 1.5" lower than stock. It's perfect; aesthetically, and in terms of both ride characteristics and handling. Zero negative side effects. This is my wife's daily too, so if it deviated in any way from how it felt from the factory ... she'd have let me know by now.



    Here's stock set up (day of delivery) with 21s in Comfort mode (pretty sure) for comparison. FWIW, Comfort/Auto is roughly 13mm (1/2-inch) higher than Dynamic.

    Iíve had my links since before I got the car. Lowered first week and 16,000+ miles later I can also say the same thing. Drives great and no different than stock. Iím not in the slammed position either - probably around 2.25Ē lower than stock. But Iím also lowered within the CPU as low as it allowed then put my links back on to fine tune the height. No suspension errors or issues to report.
