While on the topic, I've been wondering what sort of lowering kit/springs to go for, and after I had 4 people in the back seat yesterday I got my answer, none. But the car looks very nice lowered. I'm hoping a 1.4" at the back and a 1.5" drop in the front.

Get a decent set of lowering springs and if you are baller then get some adjustable coils.

i'm just worried because my friend recently fought with one of the guys at the registration place because of his xenon lights. when he said he will speak to the manager, the guy suddenly changed his mind and passed the car.

After market xenon lights aren't allowed, that's a fact.

@ TNT, expect an email soon

its usually depends on the maker but coil overs can give you -2 to +2 inches easily

soft or hard, does'nt matter

but busted/leaking suspension will give a (-) negative point and might sum up for your failure in passing.
