    Depends on the speed bumps in your area!

    Well then, like me, probably not as low as youd like! Roads in South Sheffield are shocking, makes me wonder what I'm getting for my £440 a year road tax!

    Lower it down and drive until you smash your sump to pieces, then raise it a touch. Should just about do it I reckon.

    In all seriousness I have mine wound right down (whatever JOM's lower by) and never really have any issues at all! Just take it easy over speedbumps.
