Have I achieved perfect ride height?

I put the front down 4mm today (roughly .2 of an inch) and it came out a little raked... so just try to imagine.

This was the photo I took over the weekend before I put the front down a little, do you think this is a perfect ride height?

Also the rear ground near the bumper may be distracting? but try your best.

Perfect is in the eyes of the beholder. I think it looks great the way it is. As long as you're happy with it is the real question

For a conservative gap this is perfect IMO.

Keep in mind when we drive the car will actually sit even lower than this.

Looks good.

To maintain the balance, I wouldn't go rake crazy. I like the 2f and 1r finger gap for a lowered appearance, that's just me though, it's all a matter of taste.

Denk is spot on.

Like I said in my PM it took me 3 times to get it where I wanted it.

IMO you should go a little lower all around, but nonetheless your AW E92 looks great in that pic with the GM style 219M's...

The ride height in that picture is perfect. Low enough to look great but not enough to have to baby it while driving around normal roads.

The drop whores obviously don't care about performance.
