    Advice Please

    30mm Drop with front and back Irmscher splitters.

    Anyone got there coupe dropped 30mm with irmscher kit on.

    I know the benefits of a lower, but what are the down sides.

    Do you catch the splitters regular, is comfort compromised?

    My car has just had a respray and a lower is the next job, But last thing i want to do is smash and scuff my irmscher kit to bits!

    Pics of a 30mm lower with irmscher splitter would be great

    You may want to allow a tad longer than 14 minutes for a reply

    30mm should be fine, and the comfort depends on the quality of the springs - Eibachs do a fine job.

    If it's the irmscher splitter that i'm thinking of yes it will i had one on my 2.2 on standard springs and that did it on that,post a pick just to see if it's the same one.

    It will defo damage on speed bumps if you can get over them that is. You have probably damaged that one with standard springs on the car will be almost un-drivable if lowered with that splitter,hope that helps answer your question No I've seen the colour before Titan Gold Vx call it my bro had one, hope they got the colour match wright as ICI had problems with this at first.

    Here's mine with the same kit and the eibach pro kit. I don't have any problems with speed bumps and the ride is only a tiny bit firmer. The coupes handling is awefull as stock but lowering it inspires confidence
