Can you even turn your wheels full lock with that tuck?
That front lip also makes your car look a lot lower than it is.
Kudos for not giving a shit and wanting to go lower still

You're only 24?
1) That's not old, you can start saying "I'm getting old" when you're like 28 lol
2) You've had a pretty ballin history of vehicles for only being 24...whatever it is you're in on, I want in on it, too...

No you don't... I've worked every spare moment I've had around high school and university since I was 15 years old to support my car (and shopping!) addiction... Cocaine would have been less expensive. lol!

lol I was kidding, you obviously didn't pick up on the fast and furious reference there. Working a lot isn't half bad when you know you have a sweet ride waiting for you in the parking lot.

Many people will try to argue this point but its the truth. You can lower your car to a certain point to IMPROVE your handling, once you pass that point and go lower.. your handling is severly affected. Also you need to take into consideration the way the car was lowered (cut springs, regular lowering springs, cheap knock off coilovers, basic adjustable coilovers, pro/race coilovers, then you have bump steer kits, alignments)

If its not lowered the right amount, using proper kits then the car is definetly NOT SAFE FOR PUBLIC ROADS.

It seems that alot of people think that they have the right to drive on public roads, when infact its PRIVALAGE. If you dont like the rules, dont drive on the roads.

You said it!

I've often said that modifying & repairs over the years has been way more expensive than a drug habit. Argh, if I had invested it, I'd be on the Freedom-35 program

Now everyone in cars gets to see how unreasonable MTO / DOT is when it comes to trucks. If they don't like your haircut you are ****ed.

was your car low as well for it being towed?... doesn't look to be excessively low

by chance, did the tow truck driver put dolly's on your rear wheels before taking off...?

That's pretty lame. The cops in my area don't really bother us unless we do something stupid. Hopefully it stays that way or I'm going to have to buy a jeep and put a lift kit on it.
