Recently lowered Boxster

Seems to corner much better, very stable, not bumpy or ruff!
1" drop all the way around

Now you just need some spacers to push those wheels out.

The car looks great lowered. I had Elibachs on mine for a few years and loved them.

I took several 500 miles trips in the car and never had issues.

Rufs

I also have lowered my car, ruf lowering springs (probably made by some other company).
The rear wheels seem to be leaning inside a bit more dispite attemps made by a carshop. Indeed, ride comfort is still good.
I also have spacers but suspect them to have completely changed the handling of the car (Fr 7mm - Rr 21mm).
Perhaps I still have an alignment issue.

very nice, now either get some nice wheels, or get some spacers to make them not look so pushed in.
great looking color, love the white boxsters
