    Just found Apex lowering springs that drop 30mm and don't damage standard shocks :) €150

    It's quite noticeable, someone at work has a c180 and mine is a sport, mine looks like it sits a lot lower. If I wasn't on the ipad I would post a picture.

    why not just change the shims for the sport ones the rubber rings that adjust the ride hight

    unless you want to go really low
