Supreme Power's lowering perch do just the job in removing the wheel gap I am very satisfied! This is mainly for aesthetic purposes and if you want handling upgrades, go with coilovers.



Customer Service and Packaging:

Eric's serivice is truly outstanding. The time it took from my fiirst PM to him and to receiving the package, was less than a week! Truly a smooth and seamless transaction. thanks again Eric!

the perches arrived in a box filled with "air bladders". The result is the perches were nice and very secure in the box with more than adequate padding.


Product
The perches seem to be made of high quality metals and the quality is superior compared to the OEM spring perch. The price is great too! 1/3 the cost of lowering springs. Also, you only need to pay installation for just the front and not rear. OEM ride quality is maintained. this is a major selling point for those on a lease.

Install:
I took it to an experienced shop which completed the install in 1 hour 30 minutes. the most important tool is the spring compressor. Briefly:
1) remove front shock tower
2) compress OEM spring on spring compressor
3) loosen nuts and remove OEM perch on top
4) remove rubber seal from OEM perch
5) replace with SP lowering perch
6) reverse steps for reinstall

install cost me $120 and it is only $99 ( I believe) at SP's garage! much more economical than doing a full coilover install.

Results:
I sucessfully lowered the front of my car around 0.5 inches and the wheel gap is gone, the front sits the same height as the rears. It should've been like this stock! It looks more aggressive and sporty in person and i've gotten many compliments from friends!

Conclusion:


No alignment required. my car drove wonderfully after the install. My headlights needed a bit of re-aiming though. (the guide to re-aiming your low-beams are on E90post).

The drop ranges from 0.4-0.6 of an inch approx. I'm happy with 0.5 inch drop. I'm completing the look of my car bit by bit! thanks again Eric @ Supreme Power! For the price, and the looks, i would recommend this to anyone!
