You know it's too low when you park in a vertical parking space and the front overhang goes over a kerb, but gets ripped off when you reverse out, ARRGGGGGHHHHH

How the hell does it let you drive over the kerb but not out????????

I've had to change garages for my MOT this year [:mad:]. They have a lip around their pit which means i can no longer fit onto their RR.

the gate stop in the middle of your path stops you from going any further.. :(
I have a similar problem - I have allocated parking spaces outside my house and I have to reverse in because if I drive in so the car is facing the house the front spoiler scuffs on the kerb.

It comes to something when we can't even park propely outside our houses![:D]

I could never go back to the factory suspension all walloy like a barge. So I'll not colour code the lower valances front and back.

You get really upset at being too low when you can't get into the racing circuit for a track day!!

I used to have to park in an allocated bay with a security post that lays on the ground but isn't flush, It ripped my undertray off when the car was brand spanking new and not even lowered,

I have a garage now, and wouldn't be without one.

A touch inconvenient whilst walking round Safeways!
