Right on. Didn't know you were that young. Figures, the computer gurus are always teenage kids these days.

hey, can anyone please do mine? I've been seriously thinking about it, but I didn't want to do it until I saw what it would look like afterwards. Thank you so much for your help. I left two pics, whichever one is easier for you.

I know this has been asked a thousand times, but if anyone who is good at photoshop would please take a few minutes to lower my car approximately 1.0" in the rear and 1.2" in front (H+R Sport Springs that I own), I would certainly appreciate it.

I'm still trying to decide if I should just put the springs on and call it quits or actually go with a bit more of an agressive drop with a H+R/Dinan/KW/etc setup.

Before you write "SEARCH".....I've seen some pics of the other xi's on this board dropped, just curious as to what mine would look like with the 19" rims that no one else has on an xi. So, if anyone has the time, here's some pics....

1




2



3





Full size pics are at the websites listed below. THanks again!
