That's a pretty lame look.

Hideous, absolutely hideous...:glol: The damage being done to those cars suspension and tires over time will cost these young pups down the line, AND it doesn't even look cool...:skep::willy::devil:

HOWEVER!! To each their own, it's their cars to ruin, abuse and spend their dollars on, another reason of why buyers MUST BEWARE buying some dolts used car..:leaving: Either from a lot, OR the idiots themselves...:yawn:

MadMods had full air on his Sol before he blew it up and sold it off. I saw it in operation. It looked cool going up and dropping down but not sure how well it handled in the real world. Interesting idea though.

I'm a mini trucker at heart and have been using air suspension for over 10 years and I'm in the process of building another one. There is a thread on the other forum if you care to read. I do have to agree that that stance is def not my taste but Accuair IMO is the best out there for air kits. The one I bought for my truck cost around 4000. If its built right it will last for many years but you have people out there that do hack job installs that give the scene a bad taste in their mouth.
Here is a pic of my last truck I built from the ground up, believe it or not they ride better than some new cars.

I'm....ugh...just going to leave this here.....







Kinda cool being the only bagged solstice (in the world)
Thanks to MadMods for hookin' up the bags

I'm an Accuair dealer.

Start the car, it pops up to the same exact height all you guys are rolling around at when you install lowering springs.
Press #3 on my keypad and I can go over any speed bump.
Traffic jam? No problem, press #1 and start seeing people stop in traffic to look.
'All Down' when I park is the main reason I wanted it.....looks amazing sitting frame.

I know it's not for most, but with the newest technology, I'd have it no other way.

I totally dig the low look. What I don't dig is the cantered wheels/tires, or wheels/tires that go past the wheel lip. If you want super wide wheels/tires then go the extra distance and flare the fenders so the wheels/tires sit flush within the fender lips.


IBDRINKEN would really appreciate a video of that badboy rolling down the highway. :cool:

I totally :agree::yesnod:

I will Never knock air shock systems. Heck my H2 had what they called the "sports package" with a bunch of extra "goodies"... The main attraction tho was an air shock system, vs the standard shock system without the package it was like night and day, 2 different trucks... That H2 gave us the best ride that ANY vehicle I've ever owned, they were also adjustable, way cool.. To me it was my "Magic Carpet Ride"... Wife and I miss that dang thing...:(:willy:

Air shocks are good for ride, not so much for handling, which is a priority for many sports car owners.

You haven't gone truly low rider until you have rows of blinking lights hung on the chassis and some magnesium skid plates, though.....

VW Golfs seem to the current hook up, with several cruising at this past weekends 28th Metro Cruise. All were 2-door running premium wheels/tires which were straight up and down (read not cantered inward) They were cranked down low enough that just the very top of the tire would disappear into the wheel wheel but you could always see the entire rim of the wheel.

I never give those a second look whenever I'm at the car shows. I'm more into speed and stereos. if it's fast and loud, I'm in.
