Lowered on KW V1's

These were up in the photo section but I figured i'd post them here for the xi specific guys to see how it looks. I still gotta bring the rear down a bit and maybe adjust the front slightly. It depends on how it looks with the summers on.

If anyone has any questions about the ride on the V1's or wants measurements or whatnot let me know. Here's what i looked like before on the summers:

Did you have to put camber plates? I'm waiting for my kw v1s to arrive so I'm trying to figure if anything else is needed.

Hey, you're not too far from me. How have the 19" wheels been for summers? I've been on the fence about 19's for aesthetics or sticking with 18" around here to keep my fillings from falling out from potholes. The KW's are looking good by the way; I like the winter wheels too, what are they?

I like the 19's and its really not that bad. I just do my best to avoid bumps and potholes. The winters are Motegi MR118 17" with blizzak lm-60's

I'm pretty sure theres quite a bit left to go in the front. I didn't install them but from what I was told they're at around maybe halfway right now
