What's surpising is how much smaller the car seems when you walk up to it. It's only 2.5" lower, but it feels like more than that.

2.5 is plenty. My car is "lowered" due to the smaller aspect federals and I can definitely tell looking at it and getting into the driver's seat.

your wheels look very flush as well - nice
