    Question!
    I know Copens are fairly low anyway but has anybody thought about lowering thier car.

    I ask this because if im to do a kit for it i need some feed back as to whether its worth doing. I know in a lot of areas there is now loads of speed bumps everywhere so can see it wouldn't be ideal if you were in one of these areas.

    Everybody that reads this please post a comment!

    Thanks

    Tim

    Although it would be nice to lower it, it's not practical for me. I sometimes scrape the under braces on speed bumps at the normal height.

    Same for me. Urban motoring brings little MLC's underside dangerously close to all those horrible speed bumps, some of which seem to have been installed by frustrated pyramid builders! So no thanks, not for me :(

    Same here I'm afraid:-(( I would love to lower my copen but drive over 15 speed bumps in a 9 mile journey to work. There are also already car parks that I can't use anymore as I scrape the bottom of my car trying to get out.

    Yes i thought it would be like this on this one.

    Will look into getting a batch of standard OE replacement springs made then at not so dealer prices, I know a good Uk company who can do this.

    Scooty that link to website, it looks like the site is still being developed as a lot of it is half done.
