I would like my car sat lower, But with the amount of speed bumps & the angle of my driveway its just not practacle.

So probably the best option is to fit air, Have it low when needed but the ease of raising it up when required

Fast or low and slow, that is the question.

I personaly went for air beacuse my car is driven over 50 miles a day over a veritety of different road surfaces. So in order to acheive the stance I want on 17's would proberly cause more issues than really needed.

I really do admire the guys who slam their car on coils and achieve that sweet spot in stance, unfortunately though I do not have the time/patience or deep enough pockets to buy a second car (I'm 20) or fix the car when any trouble might arise.

I went for air because it was the best option for me, I want to run low but the roads don't allow to drive low without damaging your car, it's also much more comfortable than my coils. I think it's the best option for our poop roads.

I think due to the nanny state situation along with poor road quality for people to go low air is the best option although i have coilovers but I can't go as low and I think with the product now being sold by stance solutions more cars will either have coilovers with air on top or just full air systems

would love it too but for me the figures just dont work

couldnt justify that kinda money on something like that,

trouble is with everyone getting it the scene will be filled with cars on air and ill be left out, i mean i mustve seen at least 10 threads saying they now got air or are getting it shortly just in the last week. Im not having a dig, fairplay to you.

oh well odd one out again

no.

i for one, saved for good few long months
months!!!, would be years for me to save up that in the current climate. fair play to you matey

youve probably spent more on sumps alone than ive spent on my entire car, including buying it hehe[lol-lol]

As others have already said, I think it's becoming a necessity for some, including myself. If I want the R-Line bumpers, the 18's, and get the car low, then I'm gonna NEED air to get over the speed bumps round here. We've got the square variety, and they're ridiculously high- around 6 inches or more- when they were originally put in the council had to come back and re-do them after 2 days because of the damage they were causing to peoples cars.

2k aint pocket change for me mate. i work for myself so i dont have a monthly income thats the same all the time. the tax man normally gets most my money!

It will take me a while to get the air i want as its near the 3.5k mark but i mite just wait and see if it comes down in price. Having 2 kids and a house to pay for makes saving for things like that harder too as there are more important things than the car (so the wife tells me lol )

I also hate scene bods that live with there mummy too, and make you out to be a mug coz you aint got the latest BBS split rims on ya car!! so like to get things when its not fashionable to have it! I do things to my car coz i want to, not coz some internet rule book says so!

air is sweet coz of all the speed bump bizzle and the fact of loosing sumps every 2 months!
