As above^^^^ whats the difference between slammed and lowered? I have an idea in my head about what slammed is but some people claim slamage when I sort of think...... scratch ehhhhh????

*slammage is when you have to slow to a crawl over speed bumps in fear of taking trim or even the sump off, ride and handling are sacrificed to look hip.

*lowering is when you set a car up for optimum handling IMO looks come second to the quality of the wagons cornering.

my limit is simply by looking at the position of the front wishbones - if they are at reflex angle in relation to the lower subframe i know my car will handle like poop. horizontal or obtuse and its game on

some of these slammed cars going around are built form over function

depends what i'm driving really, if i had a vr mk2 like mr lemon, then i'd have to agree with him. simply because a car with that much grunt, your gonna want it to stick to the road like glue, deffo go for a good set up regardless of hight.
On the other hand, in my mk1, its not exactly fast, so to be honest i dont really care how it handles, or how the ride is, just wanna get it as low as i can without serious hassle every time i drive it. Prefer to be low and uncomfertable, than high and sticky....... if ya know what i mean!!! My coilies must go lower this weekend! Very Happy

And for the origional question, guess its personal opinion, lowered, slammed, dont give a toss as long as it has been dropped!

I agree.

The ideal for me is minimal arch gap (arch just above the tyre) and have the front bumper looking low.
