Lowered with Eibachs

Here are some quick pics of my car lowered with Eibach springs. I had the install done on Thursday, these pics were snapped on Friday. I have EDC and wanted to be conservative, but the results exceeded my expectations. I will snap more pics because the springs have settled in a little more since the install.

That actually looks pretty low in the front. How's the ride?

Good eye!! Love my detour. My car has no spacers, just the Eibachs. I love the ride, it handles the way you think it would from the factory. Not bouncy at all, just a bit firmer. Here is another profile pic with the rims mounted.

Sick! I guess I know what my car will look like since we have the same color. BTW- what kind of lip is that?
