Need help.. How much is this 986 lowered ? :)

Hello guys and gals...

just bought a fun summer car/project...

986 S.. (actually my 4th Boxster, not including my Cayman R) getting off track here...

Anyway it has a ton of mods. Including crazy Fabspeed headers, ramair kit, and sounds just insane... insane in a good way.. no drone.. go figure....stage3 race clutch, which makes it borderline undriveable in town.. ups wandering off again..

My problem, is that it is tooooooooooooooo low...

Currently fitted with HR and Gemballa lowering spings and coils...

I will be raising it by 2 cm... but I need to know how much it has been lowered from OEM spec... anyone have any idea.. I think that it is lowered by 6 cm...2,4 inches...

what do you think..?

stands at 62 cm 24,4 inches in the front from the ground to the wheel arch
64cm rear 25,2 inches

or 34cm 13,4 inches center wheel to wheel arch rear
32 cm 12,6 inches center wheel to wheel arch front..

any input highly appreciated

it is a bit out there... not so keen on green, mycars are always black or gray,...

Thinking of making it white, with Martini stripping..

Just gotta raise it first... just by 1 or 2 cm...
