thanx a lot sir.. wanna lowering my ride just for the awesome look only. the new myvi looks very tall like hilux. very shame bout that
Most std cars are like that. Myvi is not that bad actually. Just look at those Peugeot 207, Nissan Almera, Proton Preve, etc. They're so tall that I feel like the body is going to fly off and leave the wheels on the ground!

lol, of course I do slow down. But I don't go crazily slow because I haven't lowered my car to a level where I will damage it. There is a reason why cars have a certain height. Depending on the bump I might drive over it at 20-30 km/h. Not a problem. Suspension also still ok, tyres ok, ...
IMHO if you want to take care of your car... don't lower it. The harder suspension that it needs because of that will put more stress onto the car, unless you drive slow all the time. But in that case... why lower it?
In a country with perfect roads, yes, I can see why one would lower the car. But we are in Malaysia. The country of the pothole and of the unreasonably high and steep speedbump. I'd rather raise my car/turn it into a monster truck.
Anyway I'd like to know what the reason is for lowering the car.
Lowering with the proper sport springs makes the car feels more stable and planted during high speed as it will have less body roll and sharpen up your handling a bit (the car will feel a lot less floaty).
In general Malaysia is not that bad if you just lower by 2-3cms on most std cars. I so far I have not yet encountered speed bumps that are too high and pointy, and potholes are not that many and not that severe. You should go and visit Jakarta then you'll surely have a whole new definition of bad speed bumps and potholes! This post has been edited by 6UE5T: Dec 2 2012, 10:22 AM
