the front looks perfect, but i would go a bit higher in the rear and put some spacers on it.
that looks better than this extrem slamed.

Agree with others, rear look a tad too tucked, might want to just bump it up a little bit. The front drop is perfect.

Lower the front another 2cm, and it will be prefect!

Looks great, but like all have said about the rear, need spacers and a tiny raise.
