Garage List
One of the first things that I did on this car was to lower it since I don't like the stock ride height. However, I don't want to lose the EDC so I decided to go for just lowering springs. After reviewing multiple products online, which include RD Sport, H&R Sport / Race, Eibach ProKit, and AC Schnitzer, I decided to go with the AC Schnitzer springs. They are actually made by Eibach to AC Schnitzer's spec. They are significantly more expensive than other springs, but I do like the drop and the ride quality of the springs.

Nick @ JLeviSW got me the spring at the best price with a good discount of freight to Boston.

Here are the results of the drop:







While we changed the springs, I also popped a set of 6000K D1S Ultinon to replace the stock 4300K HID bulbs. The cornering lights were upgraded with a set of PIAA Xtreme Force 4700K H3 halogen bulbs. The angel eyes were temporarily replace with a set of PIAA LED angel eyes.
