Still stock. If I lower mine any more, I don't think it'll clear my driveway. Need to put some boards down as it is.

Have you always been there? Or did you just end up there? I thought for some reason you were in Cali…

I was until yesterday! Up in Seattle for the foreseeable future! The Bay will always be my home but Iím sure as hell not going to miss CA taxes and govít.

Who knows, maybe Iíll eat my words and be back thereÖ but Seattleís an awesome place and Iím pretty stoked to explore PNW

Iíll be back semi-regularly! Might drive down every now and then, hopefully the East Bay meets are still going on!

Iím on MPHAS which is the same except for the spring rates, Iíve gotten used to it now I think. I set everything to comfort for driving around the city and avoid places like Queen Anne unless I have to go there. Honestly though if youíre primarily going for looks, Iíd go with Eibachs. My car is corner balanced so the HAS kit ended up being worth it from that perspective but Iím likely going with coil overs once my shocks are toast

Same here. Lowering is great for looks, but not practical for WA topography, not to mention the condition of the roads.

I'm running EMD springs and have the occasional scare - but honestly I avoid dt Seattle as much as possible. I use the SUV if I'm not familiar with the roads where I'm going.

Iím on stock ZCP suspension, and I avoid downtown Seattle as much as possible. The only time I go near there is to bring in the car for service at BMW of Seattle.

I wish the roads were better driving through the CHAZ area.

All Ms welcome here I've got more gap than you (pic below) but similar ground clearance. I'm used to it now, the only place that really gives me a little heartache is driving around SODO on some streets.

I find the roads are all pretty equally terrible until you're several miles out of the city. Haven't run into any big issues yet. It's not my daily driver though.

Yep...iam on eibachs and a front splitter. You definitely need to be paying attention at all times, lots of summer road construction going on now too, it sucks.....bad I am in the green lake area.
I have had a set of 18" wheels n tires on my list of things to buy for a year and a half.
