Nice mods, might be an idea to move your airfilter to somewhere, where it can get a good feed of nice cold air, where it is it will suck in all that nasty hot engine air.
Maybe a flexi pipe down to behind the grill?

i am thinking about lowering my car too because it is too tall now.

thanks for the info. i have been wanting to get a set but the dealer is miles and miles away from where I live.

how much did the springs drop your car by? 1/2 inch? Is the ride harsher now?

No not much, only when I drive on the motorway an there are many bumps. then it can be very sensitive.

Hi,

This is my first time in your forum and i'm glad.


I'm driving now my very own Kia Picanto car of scarlet red color. got this only for last December so its only 3 months. I'm so flattered because many people specially my co-teachers admire my unit.

Sorry for the late response i got my vintage computer repaired, its been three months only since i bought my unit, so give me more time to observe while enjoying my cutest car.


Tiecy :p

Hi Joe, nice modification indeed. How much the whole set cost you? I like the front, very nice. Wonder how's the back look like.
