Default Post Pictures of Your GS with wheels & stock suspension

I would like to see some GSs with wheels and stock ride height. I want wheels but I don't want to ruin the ride. I know wheels will affect it a bit, but I am willing to deal with that much. I did the whole wheels and lower springs on my old car, and I barely ever drove it because it was too low.
Lets see some pictures. Thanks.

Wheels (18-20") look horrible with no drop imo. I would only run 17's if I had no drop. You will not sacrifice ride comfort if you pick the right suspension. You can buy a Lexus, drop it, and still have a great ride.

18"s before L-Sportline drop. You will not be disappointed with ride quality after drop.

Thanks guys. I honestly don't think our cars look that bad without a drop. Maybe I am just being a noob, but I love the ride the way it is.

Man this is somewhat painful-





Not totally sad though. Just a stage that I eventually overcame-

With the help of CL.
