Pictures of 986 on RoW M030

As above, does anyone have pictures of a 986 running the RoW M030 suspenion, preferably on standard 17-inch wheels. Just hoping for an idea of how the car sits. Thanks.

Yes, the yellow S has PSS9 or other. Here is mine with RoW setup on 18" wheels. Sorry for no 17" shots.

Thanks for the images / links. I conclude that the RoW M030 is little or no lower than the standard RoW setup, which is what my car is currently running:

I believe that to be true.

I'd be surprised if it wasn't a little less travel than the US suspension. But the strut body is shorter, so it may be somewhere in between 0 and 3/4 inch

It's maybe a unit of 1 difference in ride. But it's more like a 3 in responsiveness and fun-to-drive.
