      With the front lip on I can't get in to a parking lot at school or to the closest gas station to my house, so I took it off.

      Test fitting 15x7 (I think) ET18, need to raise a car up at least 1/2" to avoid them rubbing

      i think i may have seen that car today at eurowise
      was ya out there?

      Subframe is about an inch and half from the ground in those pics. The small bumper, no skirts or trim combo never looks as low as it is.

      If i dont end up selling the car, it'll get bags eventually

      agreed. i felt like my car used to look pretty low with my bigs and even with the 16v lip but as soon as i put an 8v lip on it looks so high.

      Didn't take me long to realize that bags are the only way I'm going to get this car where I want it. So now it's up for sale

      Try doing it without flares too If I try and go over a speedbump at an angle I scrape control arms, by scrape I mean an audible klunk sound followed by a few obcenities. But it still only looks "low" like 1/3 of the time (just like steves car)
