For 150k it sits too high and those wheels are horrible design.

2" is nothing for that 4x4 M8 lol..
I had an F10 lowered into H&R sport with 20" wheels and never had to slow down on bumps or railroads, I even cleared the sidewalk curb!

But you didnít lower 2 inches and not sure what type of sidewalk curbs you have in your area but none of my stock cars clear a curb

Most companies donít even offer a 2 inch drop.

The GC will sit just like the m8 comp and m5 comp. the car settles after being parked on flat surfaces. The rear only has like a 1 inch gap max before tucking

The front is pretty low and that goodness that have that rubber lower diffuser. Itís really low but made a flexible rubber and should be cheap to replaceS. Have a feeli I will be replacing that piece a lot after I drop mine

Just not feeling the interior design in this particular model. Especially the center stack. I get it's a throw back but to me it doesn't belong in a $150k vehicle. Panamera interior is on another level compared to this. Strictly speaking design...not tech comparisons. To each their own.

I can't for the life of me understand people who are lowering cars this much.....this isn't 2000, cars these days come with only a small gap already. I've seen some German cars lowered and they all look pretty much horrible.....you don't lower a $150k car to get of wheel gap when there is hardly any to begin with. Nothing worse than seeing a slammed M5 or etc.....I feel like it was likely a Civic driver who finally got enough to get something nice but then does the same horrible mods to it that he did on his $3500 Civic.

Totally agree but then again I'm an old man (50s) and I attribute all the lowered Civics, etc. in the world as their way of trying to make the ride stand out in the sea of equivalents. For a M series it already stands out no questions asked and the lowered look provides no value.

Not if it's that car in the picture and you live in Plano/Dallas, be real.
