Just OnE

got new tires 215/35 up front 215/40 in the rear and lowered to 10 threads on my FKs, i've had them for about 3 weeks and already want bags. Also does anyone have any advice for skid plates for these cars that wont interfere with my lowering?
sorry for the iphone picture, i will be shooting my car in a week or so, camera is getting fixed.

I ran mine with my fk's all the way down. Yes the bolts do become the lowest part of your car but they are cone shaped and after a few good trips they get ground down. It was awesome when I had it because the plate acted as a sky jump instead of slamming into high things.

I was sitting like this when I had it.

I was stopped at a red light, car was completely stock with no tint, cop on a bike cruises by me, turns around and pulls me over as soon as the light turns green. No warning just a ticket.

I have had 2 friends get tickets while they were parked. So in some jurisdictions, they do care.

lol you got lucky. I got a tint ticket (one of several), when I went to the CHP to get it signed off, they told me to come back when I had a front plate. Even though the original ticket didn't cite me for it! California blows

BTW how where you able to get the skid plate off after the bolts have been sheared?
