THE NUMBER ONE REASON WHY A CAR THAT IS STOCK COMPARED TO MODIFIED (lowering wise) THAT IS THE PROBLEM IS PEDESTRIAN/PROPERTY ACCIDENTS.

dont get it?

simple. when the car was designed it was tested over and over again by the manufacturer and DOT etc....to make sure that its height prevents more damage to a person in a front impact accident and that potholes etc...on the street dont cause the car severe damage.

they really dont give a **** if it handles any better because there are a million things that can be done to a car that the manufacturer KNOWS to make the car a million times better for the same price they are selling it for BUT its not practial in terms of everyday environment due to the fact that its not a controlled environment.

if that makes sense....
Except it is not illegal to lower your car, so government is not looking out for pedestrians. Also both cars in this thread, MK3 Golf and E36, were not designed for pedestrian safety in mind. Simply because when those cars were designed, I don't think a single country had any rules regarding pedestrian safety.
