***Update: April 10, 2014 - Freshly Lowered***

Got the car lowered and spaced out the wheels at my friends shop, The Speed Syndicate. I wasn't comfortable working on the car on the ground. I was also missing some tools so I let the pros handle it and I am happy with the results.

It's crazy how a drop can change the whole car.

Installed pics, I feel like the caliper needs a sticker or something!

Some crappy after pics, hope to get nicer ones soon.

Oh how I would love to drop my IS, but potholes, potholes.... and this winter was brutal.

If you're in the Vancouver area, winters should be mild there so you'll be good all year round!

Congrats, look even better dropped!

BTW, how do you like USB??? And how do onlookers react?

I drive on the same streets practically as you. The roads are not that bad as you make them out to be, plus you have AWD so winters wouldn't be a problem.

It's tempting for sure. I also have fairly steep ramps and speed bumps I need to get over daily which would pose a challenge. The other concern is ride quality.

Any feedback from viNz86 or anyone else who dropped their 3IS, on ride quality?

Very cool pictures. I love your S2K and your 3IS USB. Did you sell your S2K?

Congrats on the purchase.

Default any regrets with USB colour choice?

Just put a deposit down on this colour in a 2104 IS 350 awd and i am having second thoughts if it might be too bright.Do you have any regrets or do you still like it as much as you first did?

Looks great! I'm tempted too but want to retain as much ride quality as possible. I might go with the downs instead
