    There are so many examples throughout culture where practicality is sacrificed for style. Impracticality might even be a bonus, since then the style is rarer. So yes, the people who own these things probably know more than you how impractical it is. But it doesn't matter. It looks cool, and it's not ubiquitous. Just like women wearing high heels and dresses.

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          That's an interesting improvement.
          Cars with "dirty" underbodies generally get significantly better aero drag when lowered, but cars with cleaner/more flat underbodies get worse. This is because a smooth floor vehicle already has low drag and a high "ground effect", so lowering such a car increases the ground effect and thus the drag. Conversely, a vehicle without a smooth floor has "bad" aero and lowering it reduces the turbulent wake hitting amd being swirled around by non smooth parts.

          Basically your mirage has practically no aero underbody treatment, compared to say a modern mustang gt which should see a little worse MPGs with a lowering. This is totally normal im not shit talking, just pointing out that lowering achieves a similar effect as flat-plating the umderbody, and an already flat underbody doesnt aerodynamically improve from lowering.

        I hate it. It's impractical (inb4 skill issue, you're going to scrape) and it looks stupid honestly. I hate how it makes the wheels in the wheel well look offset as well.

        I mean what are your goals? There's plenty of shock / spring combos that can make the ride more stable without too harsh a tradeoff in bumps. But if you just want comfortable stick to OEM.

            How do you know it isn’t bagged? Very well could have air suspension. Hell some old Mercedes have air struts with bags for ride height and comfort. Slammed/bagged has to do with that moronic tucked up look most of the time. Depends on the build and such, usually bagged/slammed are more extreme but I’m not gonna sit here and say 1 inch clearance is bagged an 1.2 is lowered.

    People who insist stock cars look better are jealous poorgays who either can't afford modifications or bought unpopular cars ignored by the aftermarket. It's cope. Plain and simple. No one with an IQ over 80 would look at a car like this and honestly believe the suspension looks "like it's broken" because it doesn't have 4 inches of wheel gap. It's common knowledge that the highest level of performance cars all have low clearance because it lowers the center of gravity and the stiffer suspension doesn't need to travel as much and it gives air less space to flow underneath the car which reduces lift at higher speeds. These are objectively true facts. Preferring lanky tall ass cars means you prefer having a higher cog and less stability in corners and at high speeds. This is why no one can honestly prefer it.

    It's a lowbrow trend for low iq people, appeals to the lowest common denominator. Lowering your car is like the pop music of car mods. It's cheap and everywhere and most of it is tasteless, sucks, and appeals only to people with low aspirations. Always has been. A small degree of lowering is often decent for handling but people take it to such an extreme that it completely ruins handling.

    Performative performance.
    NPCs see that performance cars are lowered compared to trucks or land yachts and naively assume that lowering a car further will equal even more performance, not understanding that the suspension is a vital part of performance and that it needs room to cycle.

    slamming, not lowering, is aesthetic thing most people do it because something about a ground hugging car just looks cool for some reason.
    Lowering is a performance thing, I put 30% stiffer .75 inch lower springs on when I changed the worn out shocks and struts with BSR DS' and modified the toe and camber plates. Car handles like a dream on the pilot 4 AS that went with the whole kit.

        Bullshit and you know it.
        Slamming is to drop a car as much as possible and reduce wheel gap as much as possible to the detriment of perf and regular drivability.
        Proper lowering is a fine tuned adjustment that gives the vehicle decent normal drivability and considerably better performance.
        My car still has ~4.5 inch of clearance and can fit 245x45s on 18x8.5s without issue or any further fitment modification.
        A slammed car just fricks it all up for the sake of ground hugging and minimal wheel gap.

        My tools are a fricking mess i did my front brakes and rotors today, dont even have an 18mm socket so I had to remove kinda stuck caliper bracket bolts with a fricking 6 inch wrench. That sucked but my brakes are good now, OG rotors at almost 140k miles would grind at high speed hard braking and shudder a bit if trying to creep slowly.

        I dont have an impact, or air tools, or fancy caliper contractors just a basic c clamp. I dont have spring compressors. I am missing some socket and wrench sizes. Way too many copies of cheap socket sets 4 to 16mm in size etc.

        Thankfully i do have a rubber mallet, the front driver rotor was a bit rust locked on the wheel threads and needed a bit of tap tapping to coerce.
        And thank god for PB blaster or i couldve never got the 18mms off with that small wrench amd would have totally rounded the worn out 14mm bolt on the passenger side upper caliper slide pin/bolt.

    looks better
    slightly improves handling and stability

    plan on slightly lowering my alfa once I make it roadworthy

    seems to me like there are two main camps. Lowering for performance, or lowering for cosmetic reasons. I lowered for improved handling.

    Lowered cars handle better, obviously. The issue is a street is not a NASCAR track - potholes and speed bumps can easily tear up the exhaust or oil pan, if you aren't careful. Then you've gotta add heavy duty springs, to compensate and that destroys your handling, anyway.

    DA loves to say lowered cars are ruined and anything truck related must be a mexican.

    There is a HUGE difference between lowering, and slamming, of which the vast majority of this board(i.e. busriders) know nothing about.
