    It will drive much nicer with MOAR LOW, trust me, flat corners are just a hop, skip and a jump away!

    The MPS is a good car stock but has potential to be a great car with some well placed coin.

    I can get a set of super low king springs for it but I'm not sure I want to lower it still

    Have had it about 2 months now and just hit 6400km's. Already done a trip to Melbourne and Whyalla in it, aswell as driving to work and back every day... Think I need to drive a bit less.. Average k's per week is 640 at the moment.
    Average fuel consumption is at 8.1 so I'm pretty stoked with that. I made it from Adelaide to Melbourne's outskirts on 1 tank of juice.

    Took some pics with a mates gen1.

    How low will the Super Low King springs drop it?

    I have H&R which are just over a 30mm drop. Lower than that and you start to have practicality issues (angling over speed bumps, issues with steep driveways etc)

    They do look great sitting a little lower though

    cheers

    yeah the king springs dump it fairly low. can get them from a friend who lowered theirs and are a bit over it, dodging bumps and whatnot.

    will try and make the cruise, see how i go, got the PM's, thanks for the invite

    and yeah our whole building here is pretty flash, only 2 years old

    King super lows (KMFL-42SL and KFRL-74SL) will lower it to approximately 340mm centre of rim to guard lip (I had those springs in my old SP23).
    I had eibach prokit springs in my MPS3 which lowered it to 350mm allround, it looked good, handled better and rode just as well as it did when stock

    I nearly bought my new SP25 sedan from reynella mazda late last year.
