Pics of my ST-V1's on highest setting

Just got my ST-V1's installed. Waiting on wheels to ship, cant wait. That said it actually doesnt look that bad on the 17" stock tires/wheels. The rears are at their highest setting, the fronts I had them match the drop of the rear.

In all I think its about 1 1/4" lower than stock X-drive suspension, which at stock naturally sits higher than non-X-drive suspension. No scrape, which was mandatory in order to avoid wife complaints.

Car is noticeably less "floaty", the ride is firmer, but really not far off from stock. Once I ditch the runflats I'm sure the ride will improve even more.

As I said in my first post, I'm waiting on my wheels to ship so why would I put spacers on? Thanks for your comment.

Enjoy the coilovers. Yea those run flats will be contributing to your ride quality, you'll be quite amazed how much non run flat tires drive in comparison, even you went with a larger diameter wheel and lower profile tire.
