Definitely a good looking car! Love the drop, RS*R for the win! My springs should be here shortly, can't wait to get them on... although i went with the Down springs rather than the Super Down.. should be sweet though!

Any pix of your CV3's? Was thinking about going with a set of those.

Thanks! Yes, RS*R is great quality. You're setup will be awesome with the Down!

The CV5's are perfect for the new 3IS. Love the look.

You can order them directly from RSR.

I was thinking the same thing. On Integress's thread she posted a pic of these springs and the car was slammed to where she couldn't even drive it. This car looks a lot higher like the normal down springs. Maybe its just the picture angle?

I noticed that too. It may be a combination of two things. I took that pic on Day 1, I think the springs will still settle. It might also be the camera angle Once the springs have settled, I'll post some updated pics of the wheel gap from a few angles.

And I don't know, I feel like the side pics of my ride show a wheel gap in between what we see in IntegresS' ride on Super Down vs. Down springs, somewhere in the middle. Not as low as her Batmobile 3.0 on the Super Down but a little bit lower than it on the Down. Do you guys see the same thing or is it just me

Are the rim and tire sizes the same as hers? If her tires are bigger it will look lower.
