The wheels look nice. I'm not digging the lowered look, in this case though. How much is it lowered in the pics? The Ghibli isn't a small car and it has a lot of sheet metal, so dropping it that much makes it look more portly (IMO).

What benefit where you looking for? looks or actual performance? What was the overall cost involved in doing this and did you end up tossing much of the factory setup.

This coilover set up is height adjustable, right?
Your set up is a little low for me. Do you mind me asking how many inches did you drop?
I currently have about 3 fingers gap between tires and the fender. I am looking to lower about 1" to 1.25".

My Ghibli scrapes just about everywhere I go: speed bumps, driveways, etc. And I don't mean those little black plastic flaps in front of the wheels - this is exhaust or something else underneath the car. I can't imagine lowering the car even more!

Ghibli w/ sport package is already a bit lower. But I think, unlike BMW, Mercedes, and other German car owners, most of the Ghibli owners are have never or not into modifying cars either for performance and appearance.
This type of drop may be a little too aggressive for most of the Ghibli owners.

I am thinking this is at least 2.5" drop. That is pretty low.

Not to mention the age group for the Ghibli is a little higher. I do have to agree, this drop is quite aggressive and the wheels look small without some spacers.

Hi Deejayrichierrich

I have never had coilover set up on my vehicles before. So I don't know how much trouble it is to adjust the height. Is it a lot of work? If not, are you able to adjust it with maybe 3/4" to 1" gap? I am considering lowering my car and would like to see how it looks with this drop height.

I agree 100%. It feels like most of the Ghibli owners like to keep their cars stock. None of my previous cars were ever stock so I don't think I'll start now.
