Same. I had no problem driving around either even though my front lip did plow up some snow.

No issues here. Car sat two inches off the ground with my summers, but was raised an inch for winter. Even after i got plowed in at work i was still able to get through. The only thing that gave me troubles was ice under the snow, and that was only minimal.

I'v got a lowered car with a front lip, just barely hits the snow. Doesn't really matter though as long as the snow is fresh and still soft

I raise the coilovers for winter, throw on winter tires and survived nasty Ottawa winters, Vancouver is easy.

I have a front lip that has been threw many an Ottawa winter and still looks good thanks to the paint protection film.

I swapped my OEM springs back in when they started talking about the worst winter in 55 years, stock ride height ftw.

Nice thread bump.

No more lowered cars for me. Now my car is stock height.

Except it's RWD and summer tires so I guess i'm worse off now than when I started this thread 2 years ago. lol.
