As much as I don't want to accept it...they really are improving over the years. Although I'm still not sold on them being as good as coilovers. I wouldn't trust airbags for long lengths on a road course.

The only thing I'm not a fan of is that people dial in their cars to be pancaked, so when the car is up and driving it looks awkward until its parked. There are some cases that people actually drive it low on bags, but so many cars just dont look right.

^ I agree!... Nine times out of ten, cars are set up with mad stretch/offsets/flared/Pulled fenders/etc... and when driving at "average" ride height they just look like poop IMO... Not into looking great ONLY when parked.

It is just REALLY hard to properly set-up a bagged car to have a ride height really low. Nature of bag pressure relating to ride stiffness. To ride stiffer, you have to inflate the bags more, which results in higher ride height.

To stay on topic...

I haven't posted them yet because I'm still editing. I have a little over 400 so far that I've uploaded to my flickr page, which is probably where you saw them haha.

Round BMW front with a more square rear end, doesn't look good to me at all. And the paint job Just my opinion though

Love this car, fitment is amazing, but hate the front lip. It looks like it had a bad allergic reaction to shellfish. I'm assuming it's just so he could scrape the f*ck out of it and not care...but it's hideous.
