DID SOMEBODY SAY SLAMMED?!!!
(picture me flying in with a cape.)
Seriously driving a slammed car in this city is so mellow. You ever have any big trips where you want to go camping, crank up the coils. You shouldn't be driving fast enough on shitty roads to do damage anyways. Make sure your wheels fit and don't mangle your fenders like a retard. You will regret it.
Winter height driving to Edmonton.

Old wheels

Dat fits.

Shit, I miss my gti when I look at it. I'm going to go sit in my new car so I forget about it after this whoring

It wasn't really that purple. Moonlight blue pearl was the colour. A lot more navy, I was just an even worse photographer back then.

Drove around like this for a few years - a drop of 1-2" on H&R springs? Just had to watch out for speed bumps and avoid steep ramps!

Don't have the car anymore, unfortunately...

My celica was on H&R springs and KYB AGX's, it wasn't too bad. You'll learn to spot the hazards pretty quickly (after hearing the disastrous scrape). The car came with rigid mudflaps, so for the most part the scrapes came from that. Most damage was from going down into the parking lot at the London Drugs in Kerrisdale

Most of the cars that I owned was lowered, never really had any problems around Vancouver, you just have to be careful over speedbumps, pot holes, ramps etc.

My previous car was a 2G DSM that was dropped a couple inches. The frame rails were within a few inches of the ground at any given time and I destroyed 2 exhaust systems - while driving with caution.

Here's what I noted from driving a lowered car:

-Speedbumps are obviously a pain. Driving over them at a 45 degree angle will usually get you over. I still got stuck (yes, literally stuck) on a couple bigger ones that required pushing the car off.

-You'll start avoiding certain routes to skip a few speedbumps. You'll also start parking in areas ludicrously far from your destination.

-Potholes are magnified. Almost destroyed a wheel one time hitting a pothole at 60k in the rain.

-Entering and exiting driveways is a hazard for your bumpers. It also becomes a safety hazard when you need to pull a slow left turn into a driveway with some oncoming traffic to avoid ripping off your bumper.

-You can't park like everyone else, pulling your bumper over the curb, otherwise you'll crunch your bumper. Same thing with opening the passenger side door while parallel parked next to a sidewalk. Your passenger will hit the door on the curb. it sucks.

-Visibility is further reduced in making left turns, especially if there's a large vehicle on the other side.

-large trucks won't see you as easily. A girl I know driving a Miata almost got hit from behind because a semi forgot she was in front of him.

-Rocks that would normally chip your bumper chip your windshield.

Overall, lowering the car made it look a lot better but it was a pain in the ass and at many times a safety hazard. My current car is riding at stock height, and I'm as carefree as a bird. Driving a slammed car forces you to pay a lot of extra attention. I took for granted how relatively stress free it was to drive a normal car.

Is the cost of installing coils/springs relatively similar?

I have driven many stock ride height cars and bottomed out or hit some serious pot holes that really jolted the car.
Now ask yourself, if you drop that same car 2-3", you are smashing the frame/oilpan/tranny/exhaust on the ground......so I dropped the car 4". If its dropped 4" that only leaves half an inch for it to fall and that wont do as much damaged.....slammed life logic FTMFW
