I just want to start a thread for those who do not have access to Photoshop or simply does not know anything about the mentioned software.

All you have to do is post a pic of your car, and any fanatic including myself can edit your car to give you a preview of what your ride would look like dropped.

An example of what will be done to your car pics is as follows:

BEFORE:



AFTER:

Can't wait to see your rims. Post pics again when you receive them.

Well, here are dropped pics of your car. Looking good!

Damn you guys!!! I have to do it now.... Thanks! You are right, it looks tons better with the drop. Just curious, in your opinion, about how much of a drop is that? I've considered the H&R race and sport. I really don't want to mess with coilovers since I'll never need to adjust anything. It's strictly a fun car (not a daily driver). I don't want to sacrifice too much of the ride and I really don't want to scrape over every bump.... Opinions please.

I'm running UUC v2 w/ stock 17s. Best drop IMO. Would probably look even better w/ 18s

Right on the dot. Can't sleep.

Besides, it takes less than 3 minutes to do. No sweat and just trying to help others visualize their cars lowered.
