Where did you take your car to get it lowered? How much is it, and was it worth it?

I'm using Bav Auto Spring kit Front (1.25") Back(1"). You can see my car in my gallery.

HR sport springs and Bilstein sports. About 2" drop in front and 1.5" drop in back. Looks bad-ass with the 17" MM rims.

dropped with H&R sport springs: 1.5 front / 1.4 rear

also equipped by 18 x 8.5 wheels

Thanks for the info. That pic of the black Ti up there^^^^ pushed me to get the 17" on because i was goin to get the 18"s but didnt want to ruin the ride quality and wasent sure if 17" would look alright! i think im gonna go for 1.5" on the front too.

The rear cost me: - springs which were 30 for both on a 1.5 drop and 20 labour from a lad in the firebrigade! which is 50 for the lot. that is about $90!!! If you want to do it cheaper you can hire compressors for the springs from any plant hire place n wont cost you much - but need to know what your doin or you'll send the springs through the floor!!!!

Has anyone painted the brake callipers and drums? how does that look?
