I hope there is a performance advantage to offset the look.....

Is this a photoshop rendering, or the real deal? Speed bumps will be seesaws and that is no fun. The car is very clean and wheels are nice, but I would cringe seeing scrapes.

all right - I will be the first then - although I would never go that low, I think it looks absolutely bad ass and I totally dig it. Reminds me actually of what a Boxster Pro Street Drag racer would look like. Love the wheels too!

A week ? More like 30 feet of driving. Clearly this must be a ruse.

On bags, you could go over speedbumps.

But why?

Yeah, it goes to show that some people just shouldn't be left unsupervised with tools.

It looks a little high. I bet that you could get it lower.
