You know i'm sick and tired of taking ramps on an extreme angle, high pitches on driveways, oversized speed bumps.

It's the law that public establishments must have wheelchair accessible ramps and elevators.. even "special" parking spots! Now i'm not harping on disabled people, just an example that it can be done. The percentage of disabled people to lowered vehicles must be pretty close?

I think restrictions should be put in place for pitch and ramp angles on our roads, lanes, and parking area. I've been in a million situations where my car can/has been dammaged by these areas.. even factory height cars like corvette's, porsche's, anything that looks good gets all beat up no matter how much caution you exercise.

Lowered accessibility! lets make it happen *th-up*

My pop's car in portugal has a really long wheelbase, the enterance into the condo's underground garage is so steep that if that particular car didn't have hydraulics (CitroŽn DS) we'd never get it down there. Our MB 300D had to get the center part of the exhaust rewelded higher so we could get it down there without scraping, and that is with no passengers.

hahah Greg.. you = a little too much time spent in DEEEtr*shiner*it

Yeah i'll reverse in so i can rip off the spoiler insted of just scrapeing it.

80 g's would be much better spent on a condo with proper parking then on a ridiculous SUV :idea:

mitch.. you know it!

The government takes our license plates away for being too low on the road, and now you want them to grant you "Lowered Accessibility" ?!

We wish, and it looks like they are getting worse summer-by-summer ...

exactly what i was going to write. If you can't get over the bump mostly likely your lower than the law

What? A sport-packaged 545i scrapes on the same speed bumps my E30 scrapes. I guess "sport-pack" is illegal then.

Speed-bumps = death. Speed humps are better, but not by much.
