For me there's a certain ride height that's acceptable.
To the guys that drive slammed cars, hats off to you sirs.
Had about a 2"-2.5" drop on my teg a while back.
Looked great but eventually annoyed the shit out of me cus I had to avoid certain routes and couldn't park where I wanted, plus that sound of scraping midpipe and mudflaps.
Swapped em out for type r suspensions and never looked back

if you learn how to drive a lowered car you will have no problem.. from the looks of your posts you are a troll but I will bite anyways..

learn what angles you need to enter and exit driveways/entrances/speedbumps
when you are going somewhere unfamiliar keep an eye out for speed bumps and be prepared to back out of "said situations" and sweet baby jesus look out for potholes! firm suspension + a hole in the ground that could swallow a child = a bad time!

also! any sort of height mod you do to the car i would suggest following up with an alignment! your toe and camber get fcked up pretty quick when lifting/lowering a car!

Should have a video or a meat to see who scrapes on certain speed bumps

There's shitty roads everywhere. Aside from construction and a few spots w/ unusually high speedbumps, our roads aren't bad at all.
Agreed. Drive in California, then try complaining.

Get quality coils/springs and lower it moderately. You'll feel the road more and handling corners will feel a lot nicer. An aggressive low will make a horrible ride and look like you're from the 90's .
