Smile RS*R Half Downs Installed

I finally received and installed my half downs yesterday. Initial assessment: On normal roads their is very little difference between stock and the half downs. On interstate roads I can definitely feel expansion joints in the rear but it's only slight and not intolerable. For those that say there is no change in comfort over stock with the downs... well it's all relative and I am a little older. Handling is definitely improved. I haven't done any aggressive driving but that will come. I'll get an alignment in a week or so and will report back on how it looks. These are all after pics.

looks nice, conservative drop just to reduce the fender gap.

Yes all forms of lowering will reduce the stock feel of the car, its just on how tolerable the stiffness is to the user
