Ok gents, lest assume for a second that I'm going in the lowering direction. Here are my thoughts and I would love to hear your ideas as well.
As I said before, the main reason I want the car lowered is because of those hideous gaps in wheel wells, plus to me the car looks shorter due to this unusual height. What I gathered about lowering is this,
1. Need to find a lowering kit.(Do I need to change the shocks as well or can everything be raised?)
2. Have to change the wheels to 18. I'd love something stock came to this model or Evo X.
3. New set of tires.
If I get the above 3 right the car would somewhat look like a Lancer Ex GT. However, going further the ultimate mission would be to change the numbers (Front and rear) to RalliArt ones and fix side skirts plus spoiler.
Unlike CS, these parts are super rare to find here (Not that CS parts came easy). But its virtually impossible to find those RalliArt bumpers SL. If there are any, they are exorbitantly priced.
So if I'm going to all these things, its gonna be a very very expensive affair. What I wanna know, especially from @K.o.N.o.S can you really drive the car in SL roads and places without having to worry about loosing the lower parts of the car. I mean yesterday I saw that a Lancer EX almost scrape front bumper at the Nawaloka Car part while moving between floors. It has somewhat steep slope though.
The other one I wanna know is the Ride comfort. Do you feel every grain of san on the road and even going over a small pot hole gives you a feeling that the car went over the Mariana Trench ??
If im gonna do this, I should do it now as my tires are all worn out. They should be changed in at least another 5,ooo kms. So I need to make up my mind soon.
On the other hand would a lowered are with the same stock wheels and tires look good??
