bags look really sick when u r parked and slam it to the floor. but when it comes to performance/handling capabilities it will be significantly hindered. however, i love the look but idk about buying a sporty car and then ruining its suspension with bags. if u wana go really low just go with coils. best of both worlds imho. but to every1 his own.

Acutally you would be surprised how well BAGS can do against coilovers and hi end suspensions.

When I drive with the car on the floor, it's kinda wavy... but when jacked up the suspension is extremely stiff, handles really well

I have seen plenty with bag systems running track events, and they seem to run fine

Anyone who says ' cars with air suspension can't handle' should try riding in a car with a high-end air suspension system.

There are cheapo coilovers and there are high-end coilovers, the results vary completely depending on what you run. Another example, some people adjust their corner heights on coilovers without getting a quality alignment, while other member's on here are obsessed with dialing in compression and rebound settings until the perfect handling characteristics are achieved.



Do you think the engineers at Porsche who designed this for the Panamera were the same guys who designed the air springs used on Honda Civics over a decade ago? A lot has changed since 1999
