    Lowering and Multistory car park???

    I wanted to get my mk4 astar lowered about 40mm and have it runnign on 18's, but I park in a awkard multistory car park everyday. Do people have problems with this. Am I better just leaving it standard for now?

    if u can guarantee its only 40mm then u should be ok

    my last setup was about 55mm on the front and even with 18s on multistoreys were a big no-no

    currently on 50/30 on 17s but i still dont dare risk it

    bumps are far worse as once theyve cleared the bumper they can then play havoc with the engine - in my case the precat and sump lol
