    Has anyone here lowered an S-line by just a spring kit using the standard shocks? I'm looking at H&R springs but not sure whether to go for Sport or Super Sport kit? 35mm or 50mm? Assuming approximate drop based upon non S-line car?

    Thanks

    Potholes in glasgow are bad enough. If I was sitting on air I'd have a lot of issues lol

    thats why you'd have electronic management, see a pot hole, press a button and raise it all the way up instantly

    I'm not completely ruling it out but I just think the money that I could spend on air ride and new wheels would be better spent on my next car with a bit more pace
