Slammed and 16's don't really get along in mkI's. I can definitely say I don't like 16's, tried them and hated them, so now I'm going back to 15's. I like the size of the 16's in the mkI fenders, but the thin little rubber-band like tires you have to run on them just make them look stupid. Stick to 15's http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Not quite sure how much drop this is, just kept going until I liked how it sat. It's rolling on 15x6 wheels wrapped with 195/45/15 tires.

It's coming up a bit due to driveshaft rubbing issues on the passenger side.

Personally, i think you should go with 13s, and a 5 inch drop http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

i lowered my coilovers another inch and a half a few weeks back.. couldn't take it at nerd height any longer. car handled really well. the quaife probably helped..

Hmmm, a low car on 15's

I think I might have a few pics like that

As for the explanation...FK highsport coilovers, cranked down just a bit
on Zender Turbos 15 X 7 with 195 50 15's

Aw shucks

As for the height, there is (maybe) space for your pinky between the top of the front tires and the fender lip (which has been pounded flat).
As for the rear, I'm going to have to hack it out some more..need more space...that coupled with some 195 45 15's should allow me to get it a wee bit lower and have no scrubage http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

this guy's obviously looking for picutures of lowered cars sitting still in parking lots.
those zender turbos are the lick though. beautiful car!
here's more shots of my 'lowered MK1 on 15's' out with some porsches at infineon raceway.. this link will probably be temporary. the order of the shots is sequential, so you'll see how i kept that 944 at bay during that 30 minute run group..

{ediy} link fix..
