Dear all,

Recently I got my car back from the panel beaters and got the kit fitted on and other than the fact the colour didnt exactly math to the colour I was resonably happy as it looked better than before. The only problem is all the speed humps and the cracks and pot holes on the damn roads!!! :evil:

I have to admit I kind of regret putting on the bodyjkit because I cant drive the colour like before becaus of these unforseen hidden dangers.

What do people think?[/quote]

I never have any scraping problems really.
I don't have a super low kit but my car seems to be lower then most S13s around.

you're worried about wasting petrol and you drive a turbocharged S13. :roll:

low kits are a bit harder to live with than a std bodied car. that's the price you pay for it being pretty.
