Default anyone driven in toronto during the winter with the f sport springs?

just wondering if anyone in the GTA or anywhere with a decent amount of snowfall during the winter have driven their ct200 with the f sport lowering spring. if so, how was your experience?

i'm considering getting the fsport springs, but the car with the f sport package seems kind of low already where the front lip is. (ps the f sport package doesn't actually come with the f sport springs..)

any input would be much appreciated!

I have a CT with the f sport lowering springs in Toronto.
Winter is perfectly fine, no issues.

I have had a lowered car before, so I have changed my driving accordingly.
It is not super low, but low enough that you need to be concious of some bumps and ramps.

Yes, as stated above, the f-sport drop is quite minimal. It gives a better stance to the car, while still looking OEM and being able to clear 98% of bumps/driveways/etc....
Good luck

I have an F Sport too. Curious if you put snow tires in the winter and if so did it handle a lot better in snow?

The F Sport is kind of scary in heavy downpours and snow. Thanks!

Yes, I've got snow tires.
The first winter I had the car was relatively mild with very few snowfalls.
But it was enough for me to notice that the car is terrible in the snow (possibly due to stock tires?)

With snow tires, it is much better, and a huge improvement!
